Hi, God’s word for me today is in John 4:13-14 which says,
“ 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.”
In this passage Jesus is passing through Samaria which is unusual because the Jews and the Samaritans never spoke with each other. But Jesus is passing through Samaria and He stops at a well while His disciples went into town to get food and a Samaritan woman comes to the well to get water. Jesus asks the Samaritan woman if she can give Him some water and she is astounded that He would talk to her and after they talk Jesus says that everyone who drinks the water from the well would get thirsty again but all those who drank the water that He gives would have eternal life. That is what He says in verses 13 and 14, and we can drink the water that Jesus gives just like the Samaritan.
The living water that Jesus gives is spiritual and He gave it at the cross. What does a cross do for us? Well Jesus came down from heaven because He loved us, and after He lived a perfect life He was crucified on the cross with our sins and God’s wrath on Him. That is the water that Jesus is talking about, Jesus is saying that if anyone accepted Him as a sacrifice then they would have eternal life. Jesus died for our sins so that we could live, so that we wouldn’t have God’s wrath on us. Jesus died for us because He loved us, thank You so much Jesus.
Jesus came down from heaven to atone for our sins on the cross and we should accept Him as our sacrifice. We should trust in Him and be saved. We should drink the living water so that we can live, Jesus died for our sins because He loved us and we need to accept Him as our savior. Jesus died for us and rose again on the third day, then He ascended into heaven to mediate on our behalf and to prepare a place for us. We should accept Jesus as our sacrifice and be saved. We should believe in Him as our sacrifice so that we can live. Thank You Jesus.
We should also share the living water with unbelievers. We are alive because we have trusted in Jesus and we should give the living water to unbelievers, we should let them live by giving them the living water that Christ gives. We should give them the good news of the Gospel so that they can be saved, we should help them trust in Christ. We should carry the living water with us wherever we go and we should give it out to others. We should trust in Christ and share the Gospel with others so that they can trust in Christ.
Thank You Jesus for coming down from heaven to be our sacrifice. Thank You Jesus for loving us enough to die on the cross for our sins. Thank You Jesus for letting us trust in You and for letting us be able to help others trust in You. Thank You Jesus for rising again on the third day and for ascending into heaven to prepare a place for us and to mediate on our behalf. Thank You Jesus for loving us enough to die for our sins so that we could live, thank You for all that You have done for us.
Are you trusting in Jesus?
Grace and truth, Charity Cleveland.
