What Does John 4:14 Mean?

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 4:14(KJV)

Verse Thoughts

Many people have a historical faith in Jesus Christ. They believe many of the facts that surround His life and consider Him to be a good man and one of the finest moral teachers ever to have lived. To some, their belief in Jesus remains a historical fact and not a saving faith.

When belief in the historical Jesus becomes a faith on the person and work of Christ as Son of God and Son of Man, He is removed from being an unapproachable historical figure to a very present personal Saviour Who loves us and gave His life for us.

When He moves into our life, He becomes a very part of us. We not only know about Him, but we know Him personally and love Him, because He first loved us.

When Christ moved within to become our personal Saviour, He provided life - true life - eternal life - life more abundantly, for His is the Bread of Life and the Water of Life.

He is that eternal well of water within, that springs up into everlasting life. And He calls to all who are thirsty to come and drink at His fountain of life.

Indeed, some of the very last words Jesus speaks in the book of Revelation repeat this blessed truth: "The Spirit and the Bride say, 'Come.' And let the one who hears say, 'Come.' And let the one who is thirsty come; let the one who desires, take the water of life without cost."

My Prayer

Loving Father, thank You that Jesus is that well-spring of water that has been poured into my weary soul and is a well of water springing up unto everlasting life. Enable me to be a channel through whom Your love and refreshment may stream out to all those with whom I come in contact today so that they may know You as the water of their life. In Jesus' name I pray, AMEN.
