5 quotes from Jesus Christ that everyone should know. #1
The woman said to Him, "Sir, You have nothing to draw with, and the well is deep. Where then do You get that living water?
"Are You greater than our father Jacob, who gave us the well, and drank from it himself, as well as his sons and his livestock?"
Jesus answered and said to her, "Whoever drinks of this water will thirst again,
"but whoever drinks of the water that I shall give him will never thirst. But the water that I shall give him will become in him a fountain of water springing up into everlasting life."
Jesus promised a water that would quench thirst. It was not a literal water like the water of the well but something that would quench man on the inside, in the spirit.
Every human being, regardless of who they are or what they have, has a thirst inside of them, a void, an emptiness. The woman Jesus was talking to was trying to fill her void with relationships. (John 4:17, 18)
This living water Jesus was talking about was the Holy Spirit of God which is given to those that repent of their sin and trust Jesus Christ.
"On the last day, that 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 the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water." John 7:37, 38
According to Jesus Christ, this same Holy Spirit will satisfy the void inside of you.
Jesus Christ says that He can fulfill the emptiness of man.
