Drink Living Water
Water is the essential component for the existence of life, and the conditions under which it can exist are very narrow and specific. It is highly improbable that we will find the existence of liquid water anywhere else in our universe. Life here on earth is a unique phenomenon brought about by the spoken word of our Creator.
Just as water is required for our physical survival, so too is the spiritual living water that flows from Christ through us. Without His living water flowing within and through us, we would be spiritually wasting away, dying, and ultimately, spiritually dead.
Jesus answered, “Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again, but whoever drinks the water I give them will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give them will become in them a spring of water welling up to eternal life.” John 4:13–14 NIV
On the last and greatest day of the festival, Jesus stood and said in a loud voice, “Let anyone who is thirsty come to me and drink. Whoever believes in me, as Scripture has said, rivers of living water will flow from within them.” John 7:37–38 NIV
If you’re spiritually running dry and desiccating in the desert sand, then you need to come to the ever-flowing river of living water and drink deeply of Him. It is there, with Him, that you yourself will become a living spring of water that flows into others.
For the Lamb at the center of the throne will be their shepherd; ‘he will lead them to springs of living water.’ ‘And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.’ Revelation 7:17 NIV
