Fountain of Life

In the Word

The teaching of the wise is a fountain of life, that one may turn away from the snares of death (Proverbs 13:14).

Of the Word

“Mom, I’m hungry!” Anyone with a teenage boy has certainly heard those words. It’s hard to keep a growing boy filled up!

But what about the times food is a solace or pacifier? An inner hunger that makes us grab for cookies or colas is never satisfied. Why? Because that kind of hunger is deeper than food or drink can satisfy.

When the Samaritan woman came to the well, Jesus asked her for a drink. Then He told her about a special water, “… a spring of water welling up to eternal life” (John 4:14b).

Jesus, the Son of God, offered her the fountain of life, the living water that would quench her real thirst, the thirst in her parched heart. He has the same offer for us. “If anyone thirsts, let him come to me and drink” (John 7:37b). Come thirsty! Be satisfied by His love and grace!

A Point to Ponder: What spiritual hunger or thirst can I give to Jesus?

Walking with my Lord

Lord Jesus, You have promised to satisfy my hungry and thirsty heart. Help me to trust in You and be satisfied. In Your name I pray. Amen.
