Spreading the Living Water

12 Apr

Hello again!

This is what God gave me today in His word:

Jesus said to her, “Everyone who drinks of this water will be thirsty again, but whoever drinks of the water that I will give him will never be thirsty again. The water that I will give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life.” (John 4:13-14)

So the woman left her water jar and went away into town and said to the people, “Come, see a man who told me all that I ever did. Can this be the Christ?” (John 4:28-29)

We see how our entire Christian lives should look like in these couple of verses: first, Jesus tells “the woman” He can give her living water, then she leaves her jar, and promptly runs to tell the entire town of Jesus. This should be us, though in a slightly more modern way.

When we become Christians, we too are called to leave everything, and follow Christ. The question becomes, then, are we? No, we aren’t, per se, to leave everything, in the sense of family, etc., unless they’re prohibiting us from being Christians/sharing the Gospel. However, we to be like the woman here, in that we should leave our jar behind; our old ways of getting “water” behind.

Also, we should be going through the town (i.e. we should be spreading the Gospel, maybe marching through town as she did isn’t the wisest today), so to speak.

The point being this: our goal in life should be to serve Christ. So, is it, and are we?

You are Loved!
