Jesus answered her, “Whoever drinks of this water will thirst again, but whoever drinks of the water that I shall give him will never thirst. But the water that I shall give him will become in him a fountain of water springing up into everlasting life.” John 4:13-14
Think of how thirsty the Israelites must have been traveling through the desert for 40 years. Our lives, too, sometimes become like deserts. We neglect to replenish our souls with the Word of God. We forget to pray– or we are too busy trying to survive the desert experience to stop long enough for refreshment. The scripture says that if we drink of the refreshing water that Jesus gives, we will never thirst. In fact, that water that Jesus gives us will become a fountain of water springing up into everlasting life. May we drink deeply of the water Jesus gives.
Questions to ponder:
Consider times when you have been physically thirsty.
Have you ever been so thirsty that you could only think of satisfying that thirst?
Have you ever been spiritually thirsty? What does that feel like?
