Abstract

Spiritualitas generasi muda pada era postmodern cenderung pluralis dan relatif. Alih-alih memandangnya sebagai corak berpikir yang negatif, keadaan tersebut dapat menjadi kekuatan tersendiri dalam internalisasi nilai spiritualitas Kristen kepada generasi Z khususnya. Artikel ini akan menawarkan suatu pendekatan kontekstual akan Yohanes 4:14 sebagai suatu laku spiritualitas Generasi Z di Indonesia. Generasi Z mempunyai tiga karakteristik utama yakni realistis, pluralistis, dan aktivis. Berbagai karakteristik tersebut akan dipadukan dengan kisah dialog antara perempuan Samaria dengan Yesus di Yohanes 4 dalam ayat 14 penjelasan akan air hidup menjadi suatu laku spiritualitas yang perlu dimiliki seseorang. Pembacaan kontrapuntal menjadi suatu pendekatan yang dipakai dalam menganalisis antara karakteristik Generasi Z dengan teks Yohanes 4:14 beserta keutuhan ceritanya. Perspektif penulis sebagai Gen-Z Indonesia pun juga akan dilibatkan dalam proses penafsiran. Artikel ini pada akhirnya berimplikasi bahwa makna air hidup pada teks Yohanes 4:14 memuat suatu spiritualitas-fisik, yakni bagaimana spiritualitas dapat mendayagunakan kehidupan Gen-Z dalam mendobrak segala batasan demi berkontribusi untuk kemajuan bangsa, Asia, dan dunia yang lebih baik.
