Living Water

John 4:10-11 Jesus answered and said unto her, If thou knewest the gift of God, and who it is that saith to thee, Give me to drink; thou wouldest have asked of him, and he would have given thee living water. [11] The woman saith unto him, Sir, thou hast nothing to draw with, and the well is deep: from whence then hast thou that living water? [12] Art thou greater than our father Jacob, which gave us the well, and drank thereof himself, and his children, and his cattle? [13] Jesus answered and said unto her, Whosoever drinketh of this water shall thirst again: [14] 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. (KJV)

What did Jesus mean by “living water?”

In the Old Testament, there are many verses which speak of thirsting after God as one thirsts for water (Psalm 42:1; Isaiah 55:1; Jeremiah 2:13; Zech. 13:1). God is called the fountain of life (Psalm 36:9) and the spring of living water (Jeremiah 17:13). In saying Jesus would bring “living water” that could forever quench a person’s thirst for God, Jesus was claiming to be the Messiah. Only the Messiah could give this Gift that completely satisfies the soul.

In these verses, we see our Lord Jesus tired and thirsty. This shows us that He truly was a man. Also, He was a poor man, and went all His journeys on foot. Being tired, He sat on the well; for there was no other place to rest. Many others had sat there before. A woman arrived, and Jesus asked her for water. She was surprised because He did not show any anger or hostility against the Samaritans. Jesus took the occasion to teach her Divine things. He told her more about Himself than He had told the disciples. He converted this woman, by showing her sinfulness, and her need of a Saviour.

Christ told her that the water of Jacob’s well yielded only a short satisfaction. Where ever we go and whatever waters of comfort we drink, we will become thirsty again. Only the Spirit of grace, and the comforts of the Gospel, will abundantly satisfy a person’s soul. Carnal hearts look no higher than their physical needs.

By “living water” is meant the Holy Spirit, who in turn, makes eternal life possible. The blessing of the Messiah had been promised in the Old Testament, but now the Messiah sat talking to the woman. Jesus tried to tell her that the graces of the Holy Spirit, and that His comforts could satisfy the thirsting soul for ever. But what Jesus spoke spiritually, she saw as physical.

Give it to me,” she said. Our Lord Jesus reproved her present state of life. The woman admitted that Jesus was a prophet. No past sins can bar our acceptance with Him, if we humble ourselves before Him, and by faith believe that He is the Christ, the Son of God, the Saviour of the world.

John 7:37-39 In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink. [38] He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water. [39] (But this spake he of the Spirit, which they that believe on him should receive: for the Holy Ghost was not yet given; because that Jesus was not yet glorified.) [KJV] Jesus used the term “living water” in John 4:10 to indicate eternal life by the Holy Spirit. Here He uses the term again to refer to the Holy Spirit. The two go together, hand in hand: wherever the Holy Spirit is accepted, He brings eternal life.

The Holy Spirit empowered Jesus’ followers at Pentecost (Acts 2) and has since been available to ALL who believe in Jesus as Saviour. If any person truly desires to be happy for eternity, they MUST believe in and accept Christ. They MUST open the door of their heart (wide open) to Him, and be willing to be ruled by Him. To thirst for God means to sincerely desire (hunger) spiritual blessings. Actually, your soul feels like it is starving. There is nothing else that can satisfy a person’s soul, only God and His precious Son.

The blessed and comforting influences of the Holy Spirit, is what Jesus meant when He called on them to come to Him and drink. The comfort flows abundantly and consistently, like a river; washing away doubts, worries and fears. There is a fullness in Christ. See All fullness of Christ.

The Spirit dwelling and working in believers, is like a fountain of living, running water, out of which unlimited streams flow, and is cooling and cleansing as water. These wondrous streams have flowed from our glorified Redeemer, down to this present day, to the most remote corners of the earth.

May we be obedient to our Lord, and be anxious to make these waters known to others.

God’s ancient proclamation is still true today.

Isaiah 55:1 Ho, every one that thirsteth, come ye to the waters, and he that hath no money; come ye, buy, and eat; yea, come, buy wine and milk without money and without price. [KJV] Is anyone thirsty? Come and drink! It’s free! In light of this, we have just two choices; either to say with Caiaphas of Jesus, "He is guilty of death," OR fall down before Him to cry out with Thomas, " My Lord AND MY God!"

The Holy Spirit’s indwelling in the renewed soul ensures the unfailing flow of living water. The Holy Spirit works in the redemption of man, entirely at the service of Christ, as His Agent. It is only by believing God --- that salvation is ONLY through His Son, that any one “receives” the Spirit. The Holy Ghost is a Gift of Christ to help us live a life that is pleasing to Him. The waters of the Spirit, is ready, willing and able to gush forth upon a thirsty world. How is the world to know about these waters? It is the obligation and duty of ALL believers to tell the lost souls around them. “Go ye therefore.” (Mat.28:19; Rom.10:13-17).
