The Living Water

For My Life…

Saleama A. Ruvalcaba

Have you ever wondered why Jesus referred to himself as the living water?

Water is essential for all of life. We need water for our body. Our pets need water. Our plants need water. Our grass needs water. The food we eat needs water to grow. To brush our teeth, take a bath, wash our hair – we need water. To clean our vehicles, or clean our clothes – we need water. Water is vital to almost every aspect of life.

Jesus says in John 7:37 that if anyone thirsts, He is the living water for them. Jesus represents the living water our souls need. When you think of flowing water, you might imagine water that is everlasting. Jesus, through His Holy Spirit, gives life – and it is everlasting. We need not worry, or fear, because we have His comfort and peace.

In the way in which life needs physical water to survive – our souls need Jesus Christ and His Holy Spirit every day. Take His blessing, because it is freely given to you. Take His blessing because it has been paid in full. If your soul is suffering a drought – take heed – your Savior is the living water. Let Him replenish your life today.

John 7:37 “On the last day, the great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried out, saying “If anyone thirsts, let him come to Me and drink.  He who believes in Me, as Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.”

  1. Amen!!! That was short and sweet, specific and direct! I was scrolling up and down, looking for the rest of it. 😊 Yes, everyone and everything on this planet NEEDS water! And, we all REQUIRE constant REFILLS! (In our drinking cups, toilet bowls, fish tanks, bath tubs, etc) I often think about the many less fortunate that don’t even have access to CLEAN DRINKING WATER!!! Yet here, we have clean water to wash our cars and build theme parks with!!!! That’s a different point…. But, I always imagine God as the ocean, and each of us as a drop from the ocean. Separate from “the source,” we can dry up, get or be absorbed by an outside source, evaporate, and even disappear. But when we stay connected, or find our way back to the ocean and dive in, we become one with the Ocean, inseparable yet abundantly flowing. Nice article. Thanks for sharing!
