Nothing Else Will Do

“Jesus answered and said unto her, Whosoever drinketh of this water shall thirst again: But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.”  John 4:13-14  (KJV)

I have never used sugar that didn’t make what I was using it for sweet.  I have never drank water that didn’t quench my thirst.  In these times, many are reaching to quench their thirst for love, fulfillment, purpose, happiness, and peace.  Only to find they have sugar, that is not sweet. They have the house, but not a home.  They obtain the money, but find they still could not buy what they really wanted and it is frustrating as well.  At the end of the day, as a missing piece to a puzzle, they are still thirsty.

What we thirst for can’t be and doesn’t have to be purchased with money or found in a relationship, it can only be found in Jesus Christ.  Nothing else works.  Nothing else will do.  All of your reaching out for love is found in Jesus.  All of your desire for love can be found in Jesus.  Forgiveness and acceptance is only found in Jesus.  The missing piece to fill your void is Jesus.  Only Jesus can quench our thirst.

We need living water, which is the water that truly brings God’s intended life. Do not turn to things, relationships, yourself, or anywhere else, because they will never completely quench your thirst.  Ask for and drink of the water that lasts!

Prayer:  Father, thank You for Your Son.  I realize I need Jesus, the living water. I ask for You to come into my heart and provide the everlasting supply of water that I need.  I desire a well of water on the inside of me that springs up unto everlasting life.  I repent of my sins and ask You to become my Lord and Savior.  Thank You Lord and I access that living water today!  In Jesus’ name, Amen!
