Water is the Essence of Life

Water is the Essence of Life

If I were to ask you to describe water you might say, “It’s refreshing or it’s pure.” If I were to ask you what it tastes like, there is only one answer. It just tastes like water. It’s unique.

Did you know that your body is made up of two-thirds water and your lungs are ninety percent water? I’m sure you know that the chemical description of water is H2O. That is two atoms of hydrogen bound by one atom of oxygen. Hydrogen by itself is very unstable. But when two hydrogen atoms join together with oxygen, it becomes a necessity for living. Like hydrogen, when people are joined together by the breath of God, something extra-ordinary occurs. Long lasting relationships are established when Jesus is the center of your life.

Revelation 21:6

“…To all who are thirsty I will give the springs of the water of life without charge.”

Practical Application and Assignments:

God created us with a void inside that only He can fill. The attempt to fill that emptiness with power, position, or the materialistic wealth of this world is a thirst that will refuse to be quenched.

  • Think about it and answer the questions that follow: When my son was a baby, I caught him playing in the toilet. What are you seeking to quench your thirst? Are you drinking from that which is defiled?
  • Read John, chapter 4. A woman approached a well to draw water, but instead, had a life changing encounter with Jesus. He looked beyond her faults and saw her needs. He revealed His deity when He said, “All who drink of this water will be thirsty again. But whoever takes a drink of the water that I will give him, will never be thirsty again.” John 4:13, 14.
  • If you feel empty inside, take a drink. The water Jesus gives is pure. It is not polluted with unforgiveness, bitterness, or lusts of the flesh. It is filled with life, hope, joy, peace, and a passion for purity.

“As the deer pants for the water brooks, so longs my soul after You, O Lord.” Psalm 42:1
