The only real Thirst-Quencher


Jesus answered and said to her, “Whoever drinks of this water will thirst again, but whoever drinks of the water that I shall give him will never thirst. But the water that I shall give him will become in him a fountain of water springing up into everlasting life.” 
—John 4:13-14

Jesus encountered a woman at Jacob’s well.

He talked to her about another source of water that would always satisfy. 

But He did not speak of a fountain, spring, river, or lake. 

He said, “Whoever drinks of the water that I shall give him will never thirst. But the water that I shall give him will become in him a fountain of water springing up into everlasting life”.

Far greater than any natural spring is the refreshment we have been offered in Christ Himself. 

We can be satisfied, for Jesus alone, the Water of Life, can quench our thirst. 

Praise God, for Jesus is the source that never runs dry. 

In Christ alone we find the water than can quench the thirst of our hearts and draw us ever closer to Him.

The only real thirst-quencher is Jesus the living water.
