Have you ever been really, really thirsty? Has your head begun to ache and you realized you’re probably dehydrated?
Thankfully, it isn’t difficult for us Americans to get water. Most businesses have water fountains from which we can drink, or we can go to a restaurant’s drive-through and get a glass of water.
There’s another way we can get dehydrated though. Not from water but from Jesus. If we aren’t taking in the Fountain’s water daily, before we know it, we are parched and in a dry desert.
Psalm 36 says, “You give them drink from your river of delights. For with you is the fountain of life.” Within Jesus is the Fountain.
My brother-in-law is from Wisconsin. There a water fountain is called a bubbler. I actually love that concept in relation to Jesus.
If we have Jesus in us as our Fountain, He should be bubbling up in us and out of us.
Next time you’re physically thirsty, get some water at the bubbler. But never let yourself get too dehydrated from the Fountain.
