I FOUND THE FOUNTAIN OF YOUTH!

READ JOHN 4:1-45​  

 Ok, I really didn't find the fountain of youth. But I discovered something even better - living water! "What is living water," you say? It is the water offered by Jesus to all who thirst for hope, peace, love, joy and happiness. And the best thing about it, it lasts. It is for all eternity. And it is free to all who ask!

   Jesus offered this water to an adulteress woman when he said, "If you knew the gift of God, and who it is that is saying to you, 'give me a drink,' you would have asked Him, and He would have given you living water." This particular woman had been married 5 times and was currently living with a man. Even in our culture that raises questions in our minds, but can you imagine what it was like for this woman 2000 years ago in the religious culture of her day? She came to draw water in the heat of the day because she didn't have to endure the gossip of the other woman. Now we aren't told what happened to her previous 5 husbands, some may have died, but they may also have divorced her. What we do know, is she felt empty, hurt, rejected and alone. And no matter how many men she sought to satisfy her needs, she only become more empty and alone.

   What about you? Do you look to people or things to satisfy the need for hope, peace, love, joy and happiness in your life? Have they proven empty. The offer from Jesus is eternal joy. 

"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,"

   Forsake the things that have proven empty and embrace the gift of God - Eternal life in Christ Jesus, and you will never thirst again. 

Vision. What now?
