It is dreadfuly hot in our area right now. The need to stay hydrated and well-watered is not just a good idea, but it is essential to staying healthy and safe during these extreme fluctuations of temperatures.
“Come to the waters,” is something I once wrote, with the invite to “Step into the abundant life He so offers (John 10:10). Come and let your soul be spiritually satisfied. Come and take the offer of His salvation for yourself.” (Come to the Waters)
The truth is, the heat of this life affects us all and we all need that saving water.
One day Jesus was walking with His disciples and He felt compelled to go through Samaria (John 4:4). Whilst there, He spoke with a woman He happened upon at a well. He asked her, “Give me to drink,” (John 4:7). Her response was, “How is it that thou, being a Jew, askest drink of me, which am a woman of Samaria? for the Jews have no dealings with the Samaritans,” (John 4:9).
John 4:10, 14 says, “Jesus answered and said unto her, If thou knewest the gift of God, and who it is that saith to thee, Give me to drink; thou wouldest have asked of him, and he would have given thee living water. But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life,” (emphasis mine).
Furthermore, it is expressed in John 7:37-39, “If any man thirst, let him come unto me [Jesus], and drink. He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water. (But this spake he of the Spirit, which they that believe on him should receive: for the Holy Ghost was not yet given; because that Jesus was not yet glorified.)
Water is life-sustaining. Water is necessary. No matter what climate or environment one dwells in, water is a mandatory need that has to be met in order for one to thrive. For Jesus to identify what He had to offer as “water springing up into everlasting life” is a triumphant statement. It means He meets the needs and satisfies all that is required for one to enter into life everlasting.
Take of Him today, my friend, drink of what He has to offer and you have this promise: “And the LORD shall guide thee continually, and satisfy thy soul in drought, and make fat thy bones: and thou shalt be like a watered garden, and like a spring of water, whose waters fail not” (Isaiah 58:11).
“Therefore with joy shall ye draw water out of the wells of salvation” (Isaiah 12:3).
