Thought for The day - Living Water
John 4 verse 10
Jesus answered her, "If you knew the gift of God and who it is that asks you for a drink, you would have asked him and he would have given you living water."
I’ve just taken delivery of a wonderful new kitchen appliance! My “larder style” fridge freezer can dispense chilled, filtered water any time you need it. My daughters are also very impressed with its ability to dispense ice cubes and crushed ice on demand! With such wonderful things literally “on tap” it is easy to forget how hard it is to get hold of good, clean, water in many countries. Jesus arrived at Jacob’s Well after a long journey and was thirsty. He didn’t have the luxury of a larder fridge – or even a tap. He has to ask a Samaritan woman for a drink from the Well – and this leads to a more significant conversation.
Jesus offered the Samaritan woman – and offers us – living water. Something that will quench our spiritual thirst and refresh us in ways that nothing on earth can. That refreshment and quenching of thirst comes from knowing Jesus and being filled with His Spirit.
If you’re feeling a bit dry and parched spiritually, take a couple of moments before you move on with the day to ask Jesus to refresh you once again and give you the living water that never runs dry and always refreshes.
Prayer for Today
Refresh me today, I pray, with the same living water that you offered the Samaritan woman. Fill me up like a spring of living welling up to eternal life.
