The eternal water

Water is essential for the survival of all forms of life. Everything needs water to survive and that’s why we always say: “water is life”. Certainly water is life, because if we last days without drinking water we can reach death. However, the water of this world is transient, and there is another type of water that we must procure, which is more important and eternal.

The Bible tells us about Jesus and the Samaritan woman, both held a certain kind of conversation. Jesus comes to that place and asks for water, then that woman mentions the conflict that existed between the Jews and the Samaritans to which Jesus responds:

Jesus answered her, “If you knew the gift of God and who it is that asks you for a drink, you would have asked him and he would have given you living water.”

John 4:10

If that woman had realized who was the person that was asking for water she would not hesitate to give it to him, it was the Son of God himself, can you imagine Jesus asking for water? What a great privilege that would be. The Samaritan woman knew nothing of what was happening there and that is why in the following verses she speaks to Jesus as if He were a mere mortal, telling Him that the well is deep and that from where He could draw that living water.

Jesus again says to the Samaritan:

13 Jesus answered, “Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again, 14 but whoever drinks the water I give them will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give them will become in them a spring of water welling up to eternal life.”

John 4:13-14

Obviously that woman thought that Jesus was talking about the water that I said in the introductory paragraph, however, Christ was not talking about a physical water, He was talking about eternal water.

The water that Jesus offers us jumps for eternal life, it is a water that makes us never thirst and by accepting Christ as our Lord we drink from that eternal water. Glory we give to God through Jesus Christ our beloved Lord who gives us the gift of eternal water. Let’s take each day of that water!
