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.” (John 4:14, ESV)
Being in the desert through the summer months can be the most miserable experience in life. It is so hot. It seems you can’t get enough water. Even the water you have can get so hot that it is terrible to drink. The thirst never seems to go away. Jesus promises to fulfill our spiritual thirst. He can replenish that incredible urge within us to make sense of everything. He can give us enough of this spiritual water, that it will sustain us even into eternity. Drink the water of Christ – it’s just right, even on a hot desert day.
Prayer: Lord, may my thirst for you be greater than for life.
