Living Water

Turn the tap and water comes out.
Clean, refreshing water quenches our thirst.

Stop at the market, twist open the cap.
Spring water crosses our lips and our craving is satisfied.

Step outdoors. Look up.
The clouds dampen our faces and nourish the earth.

Jesus answered, “Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again.” (John 4:13 CEB)
After a time, we all thirst again. 

“but whoever drinks from the water that I will give will never be thirsty again. The water that I give will become in those who drink it a spring of water that bubbles up into eternal life.” (John 4:14 CEB)
Please give us this water that we may never be thirsty again.

Come see the one who turns our thinking and our world upside down.Come see and experience the love that knows no bounds.
Praise be to God! 

Praise be to Jesus whose life draws from the well of God’s dreams.
Praise be to Christ Jesus whose love and justice quenches our thirst with living water. Amen.
