“Whoever believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, streams of living water will flow from within him.” – John 7:38
When Jesus spoke to the woman at the well, He told her of her need for living water. ” ‘Sir,’ the woman said, ‘you have nothing to draw with and the well is deep. Where can you get this living water?’…The woman said, ‘I know that Messiah (called Christ) is coming. When He comes, He will explain everything to us.’ Then Jesus declared, ‘I, the one speaking to you – I am He.’ ” (John 4:11,25,26)
Jesus offers us His living water in our lives, as we follow Him. “Whoever believes in Me, as Scripture said, rivers of living water will flow from within them.” (John 7:38)
We must be wary of putting our trust in the false promises of anyone other than Jesus, who may claim to have the truth. “My people have committed two sins: They have forsaken Me, the spring of living water, and have dug their own cisterns, broken cisterns that cannot hold water.” (Jeremiah 2:13)
Living life apart from God may seem temporarily satisfying to us, but in reality a life without a foundation in living water of life in Jesus Christ is empty, meaningless, and without eternal rewards.
