Living Water John 4:14

14 but if anyone drinks the living water I give them, they will never thirst again and will be forever satisfied! For when you drink the water I give you it becomes a gushing fountain of the Holy Spirit, springing up and flooding you with endless life!”

John 4:14 The Passion Translation

13-14 Jesus said, “Everyone who drinks this water will get thirsty again and again. Anyone who drinks the water I give will never thirst—not ever. The water I give will be an artesian spring within, gushing fountains of endless life.”

John 4:13-14 The Message

I had no idea that listening can heal the rift between those proverbial enemies, hearing and doing.

Blessing at the Well (John 4:14) 

Many come to this well finding they are limping, performing, hiding, judging 

Themselves and others.  

Travel weary a little tattered around the edges at best. Almost comatose and holding deep wounds at worst. 

For some this well is our first line of defense, for others it our last resort. 

And so we walk in slowly to the clearing, where this particular well stands. 

There is something different about this well. Something that feels like home. 

Slide up close to the edge of this well and listen carefully 

You might be able to hear the stream that feeds this source of nourishment. 

Listen closer and you might hear the Everlasting feeding it with the soft but fierce declarations… 

I see you. 

I cherish you. 

I forgive you. 

I delight in you. 

Here drink this cup… 

I see you. 

I cherish you. 

I forgive you. 

I delight in you. 

Drink again and again 

You will find refreshment and rest here. 

You will find as you leave this place for the day with your canteen full that what’s required of you is pleasant and easy to bear.

Living Water
Beyond the confines of the mind

lies a stream of living water

It winds its way slowly

ever onward

moving forward

leaving nothing behind

taking nothing at the same time

Free to be as it is

free to run

free to pause and slow down

free to overflow

free to hold

This water is cleansing

renewing

refreshing

this water is everything

you need

The flow of life

the rhythm of love

generously flowing

growing, going beyond

The Sound of the current beckons

A whisper running, humming

calling your name


Step into the water

allow it to pull you under

and begin to find your breath

Enter into the flow

of the unknown

and you will be set free.
