“Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again, but whoever drinks the water I give him will never thirst.”
John 4:13-14, niv
Jesus knew the Samaritan woman who met Him at the well, had searched for satisfaction and come up short. He knew her heart was empty, without love or self-worth or meaning or fulfillment or happiness. And so He gently pointed out to her, “Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again.” What was “this water”? The woman took it to mean the water in Jacob’s well, but Jesus was speaking to her heart. All those who look to draw their satisfaction from the wells of the world—pleasure, popularity, position, possessions, politics, power, prestige, finances, family, friends, fame, fortune, career, children, church, clubs, sports, sex, success, recognition, reputation, religion, education, entertainment, exercise, honors, health, hobbies—will soon be thirsty again!
If you look for deep, lasting satisfaction from any of these wells the world offers, you’re wasting your time. You need to be filled with the Living Water of Jesus Christ.
Just Give Me Jesus
