Many people in the U.S. have well water, but the wells are usually underground with pipes pumping the water to the houses. We don’t see many actual wells above ground anymore. (The one in the picture is a well-shaped planter for flowers). We need water to survive. We get thirsty, we take a drink of water. Our thirst is taken care of for a while, but later we get thirsty again. We have to keep going back to the water source to be satisfied over and over again. Jesus met with a Samaritan woman at a well and asked her for a drink of water. Then He continued to teach. He said, “Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again, but whoever drinks the water I give him will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life.” (John 4:13-14). Jesus was not talking about the normal thirst everyday for water. He was talking about our souls thirsting for something to fill the void. Instead of H2O Jesus was referring to the Holy Spirit, the sustainer of eternal life. Once we have the Spirit living in us we no longer thirst trying to fill the void. Our souls will never be “thirsty” again. Which well does your relief of thirst come from? Is your soul still thirsting for something to permanently fill the void? Turn to Jesus for the living water.
