The Water So That You Never Thirst Again
Today I want to talk to you about the Water that Jesus brought us. What do you thirst for? We all have many thirsts in this life, desires, some things leave us thirsty no matter how much we drink. We have a problem, people don’t know how to quench their thirst anymore. We thirst for happiness, purpose, wisdom, love, intimacy, fulfillment success, prosperity, health, energy! But most people are quenching that thirst with the wrong drink. Jesus brought us a different kind of drink, a living water. Are we drinking from that well? Where is it? From the beginning of time man has gathered and settled around water. Every great civilization grew near water. In Rome they brought fresh water to the city through aqueducts. That water is flowing in the streets still today. They believed that fresh water would make for a stronger civilization, one that would rule. The Bible gathers its people around water as well (Eden, Noah, Abraham, Nile to blood, Red Sea, Jordan, Naaman, Baptism, water into wine, walking on water…) Today our message starts with Jesus talking about a water that He has that makes us not thirst.
