“On that day a fountain will be opened for the house of David and for the residents of Jerusalem, to wash away sin and impurity.” Zechariah 13:1 HCSB
The human body is made up of approximately 60 percent water. Typically a person can go no longer than three days without water. Water is essential to life. That is the reason space exploration has always focused on trying to find water on other planets. Without water, life can not be sustained.
This verse references the final days on earth as we know it. The picture of the fountain symbolizes the never-ending flow of God’s love and mercy for His people. In John 4 Jesus tells us that He is the living water and that it is only through Him that we can receive forgiveness and eternal life. We are all searching for purpose and meaning in life. Only Jesus gives us water to satisfy our thirsty souls. It is only through Christ that we can have abundant life.
Challenge: Are you spiritually thirsty? Do you need to accept God’s love and forgiveness? Drink from the fountain of living water. Ask Jesus to wash away your sins and give you His water that will forever quench your thirsty soul.
