Drinking from the Well

John 4:10-15 (NASB)
"Jesus answered and said to her, 'If you knew the gift of God, and who it is who says to you, 'Give Me a drink,' you would have asked Him, and He would have given you living water.' She said to Him, 'Sir, You have nothing to draw with and the well is deep; where then do You get that living water? You are not greater than our father Jacob, are You, who gave us the well, and drank of it himself and his sons and his cattle?' Jesus answered and said to her, 'Everyone who drinks of this water will thirst again; 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.' The woman said to Him, 'Sir, give me this water, so I will not be thirsty nor come all the way here to draw.'"

Long, hot summer days usually drive people to drink lots of water. Unfortunately, when we drink our thirst is only momentarily quenched. When we drink in Jesus, we will never thirst again spiritually. Before we accepted Jesus as the Lord and Savior of our lives, we were engaged in such things as false religions, wrong ideologies and worldly pleasures. But these things could never quench our thirst spiritually. Have you been drinking of that living water? Only the living water of Jesus can quench that thirst for righteousness that every human being needs desperately in order to be right with God.
