Jesus answered her, “If you knew the gift of God and who it is that asks you for a drink, you would have asked him and he would have given you living water.” John 4:10 NIV
Living in a house without an automatic sprinkler system has been an eye-opening experience for me. It has made me realize just how often grass needs watering. And it’s helped me learn the hard way that grass will simply die without a continual water supply.
As I watched the sprinkler the other day, it occurred to me that, much like grass, we continually need water. We need watering each and every moment of our lives. We need to draw from God’s Living Water—His life.
Only as we continually draw from Christ, His life and strength will we be able to grow strong amid the scorching heat and searing winds of life.
Are you drawing from Christ, your Living Water, today? Or are you trying to live on your own? God’s life and strength await you. Let Him water your soul over and over again each day. (from Christianperspective.net)
