Water of Life

Christ is not a reservoir but a spring. His life is continual, active
and ever passing on with an outflow as necessary as its inflow.
If we do not perpetually draw the fresh supply from
the living Fountain, we shall either grow stagnant or empty.
–A.B. Simpson

I came that they may have life and have it abundantly.
John 10 v 10b
How blessed we are when we realize our great need of Jesus.
How rich we are when we recognise our own poverty
and know that without Him we can do nothing.
How fortunate we are when we know our own weakness,
for our neediness will lead us to the One who is able to do
exceedingly, abundantly above all we can ask or imagine.
Do we see the folly of going into each day with a cupful
of the murky water of own self sufficiency, when we can go
to Jesus, and be filled with the crystal clear water of life?
