While in Britain, my friends asked me what I love about where I live in Maine. I love the water! I love seeing it, splashing in it and I love all the smells that come with it.
Where I live I am very close to the ocean, to lakes and I can walk to the river running through our city. There is something extremely therapeutic about water.
While pregnant, it was drummed into me that I had to drink gallons of water, you cannot have enough it seems. I was advised to gulp down at least a liter in the morning, so that I was off to a good start.
Water is essential for life and so is it any wonder that Jesus used the illustration of water when talking about his Salvation.
but whoever drinks of the water that I will give him will never be thirsty again. The water that I will give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life.
Without Jesus in our lives we have an unquenchable thirst. We strive to fill the hole that a Savior brings us. With him we find fulfillment and joy. We find peace. The water here on earth makes me happy, I am always glad of a family day to the beach. This is a good gift from Heaven, that illustrates a fraction of the excitement and joy of seeing our Savior in Heaven.
