Everyone’s been thirsty. Everyone’s had a desire or a need that they needed met.
This is a real life situation, you’ve needed something-something to sustain your life- and the only thing that could quench it was water. Water is absolutely necessary to your continued existence.
But it’s something you need continually. If you only had water once and never again your life wouldn’t continue.
You continually need water. Everyone continually needs this necessity of life.
The Bible records a story of a thirsty woman. She went to a well and met a man there. That man’s name was Jesus.
The Bible says that Jesus was the Son of God, but she didn’t know that yet. Jesus started talking to this woman and, naturally, their conversation turned to water.
Jesus finally told the woman, “Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again, but whoever drinks the water I give him will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life.” (John 4.13-14)
It was everlasting, ever satisfying, life giving, thirst quenching water.
Immediately this woman wanted to know how this was possible. How could this stranger give her an everlasting, fountain of youth-esque, water?
Jesus was actually talking about Himself.
Jesus was leading this woman to Himself. Jesus is God and God is the only one who has eternal life. The life that’s in Jesus is eternal, satisfying, life giving, and quenching.
So, like the woman at the well asked, how do we get it?
We accept it. In the same way that if someone offered you a drink all you’d have to do is stop trying to get the drink yourself and trust that the person handing it to you would give it to you, Jesus is offering Himself to you in all His perfection and all you have to do is accept it.
