“The water that I will give him will become in him
a spring of water welling up to eternal life.”
Today, there is a scarcity of spiritual water throughout the world; people thirst for it. Yet we watch people going to the wrong watering holes searching for satisfaction, something that only the Lord Jesus can provide; The Water of life.
Just as we need water to drink for our physical needs, we also need spiritual water. Jesus said that the water He gives will become a spring of water welling up to eternal life (John 4:14).
People everywhere are trying to quench their thirst; their spiritual longings are evident by all the man-made religions. There are many holy books of various religions, and they all begin with some flashes of true light, and end in utter darkness. Even the most casual observer soon discovers that the Bible is radically different. It is the only Book that offers redemption to us and points the way out of our dilemma through salvation found only in Christ Jesus.
In John 7, we read that “Jesus stood and cried out, saying, ‘If anyone thirsts, let him come to Me…. He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water” (John 7:37-38).
Lord, please forgive me for the times I forsake You, the source of living water. I am thirsty and ask today for You to fill me to overflowing with Your life-giving water. I pray in the name of Jesus. Amen.
