Stay In Total Refreshment
My, Devotion to Him #4
VERSE PASSAGE: John 6:35 "Then Jesus declared, “I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never go hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty." - NIV
VERSE PASSAGE: John 4:15 "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" - NIV
The woman is not understanding what Jesus has just told her. In (John 10:14). He was talking to her about ever living water in which she would never go thirsty again. But you see she was only looking with her physical eyes. So she asked Jesus to give her this water so she would not go thirsty and she wouldn't have to go back and forth to the well and draw from it just to drink. She is not understanding that Christ is offering her eternal life. He is offering something so much better than physical water but spiritual water. He is offering her a chance to drink from eternal life. Water in which is alive. The kind that is not seen with earthly eyes, or felt with our hands. It is water that once drank does wonders for the spirit, body, mind and soul. She was only wanting water but He was offering her everlasting life. This water overflows within you. The kind that flows off you and onto others around you. Making others ask what is going on. For there is no water on earth that can sustain us everlastingly. But the water of God will keep us in total refreshment forever and ever.
1. Look with your spiritual eyes more.
2. Jesus is the only one who can give us living water.
3. No water on earth can totally satisfy us.
