Water sustains life. We are advised to drink eight cups a day to ensure
proper hydration. It keeps our kidneys working right and flushes our
system of toxins. People who lose weight believe that drinking water
has a connection to losing weight. Drinking water is especially
important when working outside in the heat. When people are
dehydrated and suffer heat strokes, the first thing doctors do is
give them water to bring their body temperature down. In severe
cases, they even use ice packs.
By not drinking water, we can lose our appetite. When we do eat,
it comes back up. It is important to get our daily eight glasses of
water in daily.
JN 4:13-14 Jesus answered, "Everyone who drinks this water will be
thirsty again, 14) but whoever drinks the water I give him will never
thirst. Indeed, the water I give him will become in him a spring of
water welling up to eternal life."
How much more important is it that we get our drink of spiritual water
in every day? Come to the Lord and find out what He wants to give
us? By doing this, we keep our spiritual life clean of toxins. Lack of
spiritual water can cost us our appetites for God.
Jesus says in the above verse that if we drink of the water He gives,
we will never be thirsty. We will never find ourselves lacking in
spiritual fulfilment. The water leads to eternal life. The more we
drink, the more of what Jesus has for us, we want.
We begin to see the benefits of drinking from the well of Jesus.
We find ourselves looking forward to what Jesus has for us each
