The scorching hot sun burns your skin. You're feeling swelteringly HOT. Sweat drenches your shirt. You wipe your wet forehead and look around longingly for water. WATER!! Your soul longs for water; even just a sip of it down your dry, hoarse throat would do... Otherwise, you think you'll probably DIE.
That's it, pal. Are you THIRSTY today? You could be drinking a dozen bottles of water to quench your thirst, but that's just a PHYSICAL illustration. What about the SPIRITUAL?
13 Jesus answered and said to her, "Whoever drinks of this water will thirst again, 14 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."
In verse 13, Jesus was refering to the NORMAL water we drink everyday. But in verse 14, Jesus talks about LIVING WATER. And this, only JESUS CHRIST can give. No one else. It says in verse 14 that: "..whoever drinks of the water that I shall give him will NEVER (NEVER!) thirst..." Isn't that wonderful?! The LIVING WATER Jesus was talking about refers to EVERLASTING LIFE.
Do you realize that humans never seem to be SATISFIED in life? That's US. We're NEVER satified. Once we've got what we want, we see something else BETTER, and we feel UNSATISFIED again. Don't you think so?
Here's the GOOD NEWS for the day (In fact, for the rest of your life!) :
JESUS can SATISFY. The ONLY solution is to drink of the LIVING WATER that Jesus offers you. Its YOUR choice. =)
Drink of the LIVING WATER JESUS CHRIST offers to YOU right now!! =D
