Living Water

Jesus replied, If you only knew the gift God has for you and who I am, you would ask me, and I would give you living water.  (John 4:10 NLT)

   Food and water are the two basic needs of life.  Man can exist for many days without food, but only a short time without water.

   A number of humanitarian organizations are working worldwide to provide clean water systems for people in desperate need.  In many locations, the same water is used for sanitarian purposes, washing clothes, bathing and drinking.  Clean water projects teach the people how to take the undrinkable water and make it drinkable.

   Life giving water is also needed to establish a relationship with God.  Jesus offered this life saving water to a woman at the well outside Sychar.  After some debate, the Samaritan woman accepted the life saving water that Jesus offered and went into town to bear witness of her new found faith.

   Souls are longing for thirst quenching water.  You and I have in our hands that life giving water -- the word of God.  We can either hoard it for ourselves, or we can share it with others.  Will you be willing to hand out a cup of that everlasting water to someone you meet today?  

Thought for the Day: God has provided through Jesus Christ the water that can purify the soul and make it clean.
