So today I wanted to talk about a verse that I found in the Book of John that I felt like the Lord was prompting me to look at. After praying about it I realized that there may be something deeper here then what meets the eye at first. So let’s break it down.
Jesus answered and said to her, “Everyone who drinks of this water will thirst again; but whoever drinks of the water that I will give him shall never thirst; but the water that I will give him will become in him a well of water springing up to eternal life.”John 4:13-14 NASB1995
When reading this passage we have ton understand that the water that Jesus is giving us is the Holy Spirit. With this in mind we can understand the deeper message better. What the Lord brough to my attention is that there are three types of water in this passage that Jesus gives us. First, is just water. Second, is a well of water. Thirdly it is a spring of water. So what can we learn from this? Well if we put this in context of the Holy Spirit we can see that there are at least three levels of the Spirit. First is the water. This is what satiates an individual and causes them to have their strength renewed. Water is essential to life and without it we will die. This is the begining of the Holy Spirit and is connected to a believer’s born again experience. Second is the Well. Well are deep and dug out through hard labor. But after they are dug they produce water continually for people, especially in the desert. When we seek the Lord in prayer and read His word daily, we are digging a deeper well. This well of the Spirit will sustain us in our desert journies. Lastly, there is the spring of water. A spring gives life to everything around it. There is no need to pull out from it because it produces water of itself. The spring is constantly pouring out and never ceases. For a Christian, you can get to the place where the Spirit is constantly pouring out from you. This is where Jesus was in His level of the Spirit. Everywhere He went the Spirit was pouring out life from Him by ministering to people. Jesus says that the water that He gives will one day become these things for us. Sadly, many believers are living off the water or are stuck only have a deep well for themselves. I challenge you today to seek a deeper relationship with the Holy Spirit and ask that you would be made a spring of water to the Lord.
