100% 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.” -John 4:14

The human body is made up of 60% water. If it were possible to separate the water in your body from all the other stuff, bones and brain, muscles, and skin—then you would see that you are mostly water. (To be certain, this is a scientific study that you do not want to sign up for!) Plants are apparently far better hydrated than humans. Many plants are nearly 90% water! What appears to be mostly leaf, stem, and root is actually a whole lot of water.

Jellyfish, however, make human beings and plants seem dry, almost dusty, by comparison. These fascinating creatures are 95% water! In John 4:14, Jesus makes a bold promise using water as a metaphor, a word picture. The water our Savior describes is nothing like ordinary water. This water is filled to overflowing with power. The water Jesus gives is

*100% holy,

*100% life giving,

*100% satisfying,

This Water Is The Holy Spirit Himself:

“Jesus stood and cried, saying, if any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink. He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.” -John 7:37-39

God sends His Holy Spirit into your heart, filling you to overflowing with living water. Just as earthly water brings life and quenches thirst, the living waters of the Holy Spirit bring eternal life and the should-quenching gifts of God that flow from it. This means that you are not just 60% ordinary water; you are also 100% living water! Within you dwells the powerful, life-giving Holy Spirit. In a world that is parched and powerless, you are a conduit, a channel of life that will never run dry.

Peace & Blessings,

J.A. Maxwell, Minister
