Jesus said to her, “Everyone who drinks of this water will be thirsty again, but whoever drinks of the water that I will give him will never be thirsty again. The water that I will give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life.”
What would it take to make you genuinely happy? What would it take to really satisfy you?
Would it be more money, more pleasure, greater success, better relationships, or a better physique? What would it take?
Unfortunately, the world screams that these are the things that will bring you ultimate satisfaction. And it’s so easy to buy into the notion that these things will truly satisfy.
But take another look at today’s verse. Jesus told the woman at the well that the things of this life won’t ever really satisfy us…only He will.
So many people today chase the dream of personal achievement…and find that it doesn’t really satisfy. Others think, “I’ll be happy if I can just find Mr. Right,” or “I’ll be fulfilled if I can just find Mrs. Right.” But even the best man or the best woman can’t satisfy the deepest longings of the human heart!
I can guarantee you that nothing…no human relationship…no job promotion…no amount of money in your bank account…will satisfy you like Jesus can.
If you’ve lost sight of this fact, I encourage you to ask God to help you realign your priorities today!
nothing in life will truly satisfy you except Jesus christ.
