Often when we read this, I envision something like a peaceful babbling brook. And there's truth in that picture. But it's not the entire picture. Verse 37 indicates that Jesus was shouting his message to the crowds. Jesus did a lot of speaking during his brief earthly ministry. Nowhere else does it indicate that he was shouting. I believe we can infer that He was trying to get across something about the POWER of that living water.
- Water can make things grow.
- Water can create energy.
- Water makes our bodies function properly.
- Water can hold up a ship.
If 'plain old water' can do all that and more, we need to remember the amazing power that we have been granted access to in the provision of LIVING WATER. We need only to thirst. Take a couple minutes and watch this and be reminded of His Power.
In His Power...
