Lent Day 8: “My Nourishment Comes from Doing God’s Will”



Find a place where you can be still and sense God’s presence. Ask the Holy Spirit to guide your time of reading, reflection, and prayer.


John 4:1-45


Hunger and Thirst

In the passage, can you see the connection between the desires of God and the desires of humans? Jesus (God the Son) fulfills his hungry desire to do the will of the Father (God) by satisfying the woman’s thirst for a meaningful life. It seems that God desires to complete us in our lacking areas. Meanwhile, we are never complete (whole) without God. God hungers to interact with you and set you free to be alive!

1) “My food is to do the will of him who sent me and to accomplish his work.” How do these words of Jesus make you feel? In what ways have you done the Father’s work lately?


How can you acknowledge God’s attempts to get your attention each day? What are ways you find deep satisfaction in God? Set time aside to take part in some of these activities today and this week.
