Find Lasting Satisfaction

[COLOR=#ff0000]‘But those who drink the water I give will never be thirsty again.’ John 4:14 NLT[/COLOR]

Jesus asked the woman at the well for a drink of water. Surprised that a Jew would talk to a Samaritan, she asked Him why He was asking her for water. He replied: ‘If you only knew… you would ask Me, and I would give you living water… Anyone who drinks this water will soon become thirsty again. But those who drink the water I give will never be thirsty again.’ (John 4:10, 13–14 NLT)

Notice the distinction between ‘this water’ and ‘the water I give’. Jesus wasn’t discussing regional water qualities. He was talking about her five failed marriages and the man she was currently living with. The truth is, she had no idea how or where to find the satisfaction she’d thirsted for. One disappointing relationship after another; no matter how often she drank from ‘this water’ her thirst could not be satisfied. And her response to each failed relationship was another failed relationship—supposing, as we often do, that doing more of what doesn’t work will eventually make it work! Jesus wasn’t criticising her lack of morals. No, He was offering her the only real cure for emptiness. ‘Anyone who drinks the water… I give will never thirst again.’

Whatever you’re looking to for fulfilment—drugs, alcohol, sex, pornography, serial relationships, money or popularity—it’s all water that can never satisfy. Focusing your life on Jesus, spending time with Him, talking with Him, and ‘drinking in’ His Word daily will absolutely fill the void within you.

Yes. definitely two [2] waters. One is like the water into Peter started to sink when he took his eyes off of Jesus. The other is clear as crystal and proceeds from the throne of God. The former consists of the lost multitudes who continuing walking in death. The latter consists of the Life which Jesus is and which is available to anyone who is hungering and thirsting after the righteousness of God. Into which one should we be baptized?
