I will give of the fountain of the water of life freely to him who thirsts. Revelation 21:6
The Congo River in Africa is the deepest river in the world—so deep we don’t know how deep it is. For 2,500 miles, it meanders back and forth through Central Africa, then it suddenly drops away, sending 1.45 million cubic feet of water into the Atlantic Ocean every second. There’s no delta—only a deep channel that’s fathomless enough to submerge a skyscraper. The force of the water is dramatic and deadly.
But you’ve got something better inside of you. The greatest river in the universe is the water of the Holy Spirit flowing from Christ through believers. Jesus told the woman in John 4:14: “But the water that I shall give him will become in him a fountain of water springing up into everlasting life.” And in John 7:38-39, He said, “‘He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.’ But this He spoke concerning the Spirit.”
Try to picture it. From deep within you, the Lord Jesus is unleashing a river of grace that will refresh others. That’s the river of living waters!
Perfect, yet it floweth fuller every day. Perfect, yet it groweth deeper all the way. Frances Ridley Havergal
