Are You Thirsty? ~ Sunday Devotion

Jesus answered, “Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again, but whoever drinks the water I give them will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give them will become in them a spring of water welling up to eternal life.” John 4:13-14 (NIV)

It’s a hot, summer day. You just got in from a long walk. What are you thirsty for? A big glass of ice water? Lemonade? Soda? A milkshake? We have an abundance of options to quench our thirst. But no matter what beverage you choose, you’ll eventually get thirsty again.

After an especially long, hot workout, the only thing that will quench my thirst is a carbonated beverage. In fact, I recently stocked up on my favorite flavored sparkling water so I’d have it available for those days when that’s the only thing that will quench my thirst.

What are you thirsty for? Have you been on a long journey? Are you feeling parched?

Are you thirsty? There is only one source that will truly satisfy. Go to the well with Jesus. Click To Tweet

My pursuit for weight loss had me searching and seeking, gazing into various wells hoping that I’d find that one that would provide the drink I needed to finally break free from the worries and insecurities related to my body. I was thirsty for freedom. After drinking from a number of different wells, I realized only Jesus could quench that thirst. 

The world is full of influencers trying to get you to drink their special water from their special well. Those “special drinks” are things like a plan to fast-track success, weight loss, or financial freedom. The “special wells” are the secrets to lasting relationships, raising good kids, and building a multi-million dollar business. They know we thirst. Just like the variety of beverages we thirst for, people thirst for everything from meaning and purpose to love and wealth and thinner bodies. But achieving those things will never quench our thirst. Eventually, we’ll be thirsty again. 

Are you thirsty? Have you found yourself at the well? Do you keep going back to the same one hoping that it will finally provide what you need? Have you been visiting various water sources trying to find the one that will finally quench your thirst? If you are thirsty, thirsty for something that a glass of water will not quench, you’re going to have to go to Jesus. He is the only One who will truly satisfy your thirsty soul. 

Action Step: Go to the well that is Jesus. Only He will truly satisfy. 

Happy Sunday!
