Jesus said, “Everyone who drinks from this water will get thirsty again. But whoever drinks from the water that I will give him will never get thirsty again – ever! In fact, the water I will give him will become a well of water springing up within him for eternal life.” John 4:13-14
In the 1970’s no one would have thought that anyone could sell drinking water in bottles. It was not until the 1980’s that bottled drinking water was manufactured and in the 1990’s it became popular. Today it is common to see people with a bottle of water in their hands. Our bodies are made up of approximately 60% water. A person can only go three days without water before he dies. Water is vital to living.
Just as our bodies need water to survive, our souls need spiritual water. Jesus provides spiritual water for our souls. Those who drink of His spiritual water will never thirst again. He satisfies all of our spiritual needs. We would not deprive our bodies of food and water, and we must not deprive our souls of what they need. The living Word, Jesus Christ, and the written Word, the Bible, can satisfy our hungry and thirsty souls.
