Turn To Him, and You’ll Find True Satisfaction That Lasts for Eternity.
Imagine being stranded in the middle of the ocean. The sun beats down on you relentlessly, and your throat is parched with thirst. Your search for water for hours but need help finding it. You can feel your life slipping away with every passing moment. In that moment you need more than just water.
While most of us might never find ourselves in such a situation, there’s a thirst that many experiences at some point or another – a thirst that comes from the soul for fulfillment. You might try everything you can to quench this thirst – a new job, relationship, material possessions – but nothing seems to work.
How to satisfy your deeper thirst; Interestingly, Jesus spoke about this kind of thirst that can be satisfied by Him alone.
In John 4:14, He said:
“Whoever drinks the water I give them will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give them will become in them a spring of water welling up to eternal life.”
Jesus is talking about a spiritual thirst that nothing can satisfy. But when you take the water that Jesus gives, the thirst is quenched forever. It’s like a wellspring of life that bubbles up within you, and it never runs dry. Jesus brings the fulfillment and purpose we all long for, and He alone can give us true satisfaction in life.
So if you’re feeling like something’s missing or searching for something more in life, remember what Jesus said. Take a drink of the living water that He offers, and be amazed at the fulfillment of the Holy Spirit inside of you.
Turn to Him, and you’ll find true satisfaction that lasts for eternity.
May the God of the Bible bless you!
