“Never Thirst Again?”

From a sermon by Pastor John
June 30, 2016

Jesus answered and said to her, ‘Everybody who drinks this water
will get thirsty again, but if anyone drinks the water that I’ll give him,
he’ll never thirst again.  No, the water that I’ll give him will become
within him fountain of water, springing up into eternal life.’
Jesus, in John 4:13–14

I used to think that the above words from Jesus meant that those who drank the water he gives would never again feel any thirst at all.  And I wondered what was wrong with me, for I was constantly “thirsting” for more of his water.  But thankfully, he let me know that the water that he gives doesn’t quench your thirst for him and his water of life; rather, it quenches your thirst for anything else.  Jesus’ water creates thirst for more of what Jesus is handing out, and removes from our hearts the thirst for anything else!
