Jesus knows first hand the generosity of God. Everything starts from God caring and His generosity. Jesus has been with God from the beginning.
Jesus knows that God is a loving Father. Jesus knows God’s very nature because Jesus shares that nature. Jesus is God’s son. God’s DNA is in Jesus.
When we ask for a drink of water, Jesus reminds us (challenges us) to focus on what is important. Water will only quench our thirst for a brief period of time.
Jesus gives us the Holy Spirit (living water) who empowers us for all of eternity. We have that now.
May I drink from the living water of Jesus and realize the power of His Holy Spirit.
May I realize that now.
“If you knew the generosity of God and who I am, you would be asking me for a drink, and I would give you fresh, living water.”~Jesus (John 4:10)
