Where can I find Living Water?
Today’s devotion is based on John 4:15, 25, and 26, “The woman said to him, “Sir, give me this water so that I won’t get thirsty and have to keep coming here to draw water.” . . . The woman said, “I know that Messiah” (called Christ) “is coming. When he comes, he will explain everything to us.” Then Jesus declared, “I, the one speaking to you—I am he.”
Her interest is piqued as Jesus reveals her deepest secrets and talks about living water for her thirsting soul. So she asked, “Where can I get this water?” Jesus answered, “I am he.” Jesus is the source of eternal life. He gives relief from sin and shame. It’s relief that lasts.
Where can you and I get this living water? Jesus takes us to concrete places to find this steady stream of living water. The Bible, the Word of God, is pictured as water. Through it, we find life because it’s more than just a book. It is the power of God from which his love and forgiveness flow freely. No matter how messy life has been, there’s no stain Jesus can’t wash away. In Jesus, through his Word we find living water in abundance.
Please pray with me: Jesus, every day, lead me to your Word so that I can know lasting comfort and relief. In your blessed name, I pray. Amen.
