‘Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again, but whoever drinks the water I give will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life.’ [NIV]
When God created the world – He included water, when God formed man – He included water, when God sustains man – He includes water. Our essential need for water is no accident, God knew what He was doing on both a physical and a spiritual level.
Jesus talks of our need to quench our souls with spiritual water. So what does this mean to us? How can we drink this water that Jesus gives?
- Spend time talking and listening to God, allowing Him to refresh you, build you and strengthen you with His love.
- Read the living word of the Bible, allowing God to reveal new things to you and shower your mind with His promises.
- Say sorry for the things you have done wrong, allowing God to cleanse you, heal you, renew you and fill you with His love that flows out to others.
Precious Father, thank you for your spiritual water. May I come to you with an open heart and mind and ask that you would fill me afresh, so that your love may bubble up and touch the lives of all I meet today. Amen.
