Thought for the Week- Anne Rowe

Basingstoke Gazette: Thought for the Week Thought for the Week

RECENTLY, there has been a spate of water leaks in the road where I live.

For several days, lorries have arrived with digging equipment, generators and pumps to make repairs, leaving a patchwork of Tarmac squares on the pavement.

Water is a commodity we never think about unless there is a leak or a hosepipe ban. But in many parts of the world where it is scarce people know how valuable it is.

Water is essential for physical life to survive. Without it, we die.

But what about spiritual thirst?

Jesus told a woman He met at a well (John Chapter 4) that he could offer ‘living water’ which would satisfy her forever.

She is very interested because she thinks she won’t have the chore of collecting water each day. But Jesus is talking about the deep thirst people have to find real satisfaction and peace in their lives.

He can offer them a quality of life like no other, now and for eternity.

Perhaps it’s time to take a drink of that ‘living water’?

Sounds like Jesus would be very good at telemarketing. But in His day he didn't have to give that very rapid couple of sentences at the end that essentially gives you the small print of the deal.

It sounds like Jesus was trying out some cheesy chat up lines at the local well.

"Without it, we die"

Funnily enough, I have abstained from Jesus for many years now, but have not yet died of lack of Jesus.
