Jesus said, “Anyone who drinks the water that I shall give will never be thirsty again: the water that I shall give will turn into a spring inside him, welling up to eternal life.”
– John 4:14
The person whose only concern is seeking joy in wealth and pleasures, is never truly satisfied – that person always thirsts for more. But, if we drink from the water that Jesus gives us, we shall be satisfied. The living water that Jesus gives us is His own teaching; His grace; His spirit.
When we drink from the water that Jesus gives us, we shall be satisfied – satisfied with the grace of Christ and its pure and rich joys. The grace of Christ shall be in our heart, and there shall be a constant supply, an unfailing fountain from which we will gladly give to others.
We will no longer yearn inconsolably for the pleasures and amusements of this world. We will be cleansed of our selfishness…and this will be forever and eternal, in this world, and in the world to come.
Jesus, Fountain of Living Water,
quench my deep thirst for love and joy and peace.
Change me through Your sanctifying grace.
Send Your Spirit to dwell in me
and to wash me clean and fill me with Your love.
Quench my thirst, Lord, and make me a well of living water.
Fill me till I overflow
…so that I can share Your precious grace with others.
Come, Lord, fill me. Amen.
