but whoever drinks of the water that I will give him shall never thirst; but the water that I will give him will become in him a well of water springing up to eternal life. John 4:14
The other morning we drove by an early block party*, there were people standing in line looking to buy beer at the crack of dawn. There wasn’t just a few people, there was many. Got me thinking , was is it about the alcohol that compelled people to get out of bed early and stand in a long line?
Could it be that people’s lives are so stressful and chaotic , they are looking for an escape? Are they searching for that euphoric feeling of being drunk? Then made me think, what if these people knew about Gods “Living Water” Jesus Christ?
Jesus said whoever drinks of this water will never thirst again. How can this be? Well think about why are people determined to get drunk? They want a solution to their problems, but Jesus is the permanent solution
Makes me wonder why people have no issues getting out of bed to drink, but where is the same enthusiasm for Church? Perhaps our churches failed to deliver the “Living Water”? Perhaps if people really knew what God has already done for us, and he can provide for all our needs, then they would drink from the “Living Water”?
If your looking for a permanent solution, a drink that has overcome the world, drink from the “Living Water” and never thirst again in Jesus name Amen
