The Fountain of Life – Jesus
For with You is the fountain of life; in Your light we see light (Psalm 36:9).
When you’ve been on a long hot walk, what you want is water. Sometimes the heat gets to be too much and you’re afraid of a heat stroke. You need some cool water on your tongue and something wet on the back of your neck. If you’re in really bad condition, you stick your whole head in the water. When you need water to keep from fainting, Jesus is your Fountain of Life who will give you a new presence of mind and a new focus. Do you need to cool down your anger, frustration, or bitterness.
Sometimes at work you need a drink of water to refresh your work habits. Sometimes you need a drink of water in the middle of the night because your mouth is dry and you can’t sleep. Sometimes a drink of water makes you think well, play better, talk better, or perform better. For whatever you need, pause to drink of Jesus. Just as water energizes the body, so the renewed presence of Jesus revitalizes your life. Remember, Jesus called Himself “a fountain of water springing up in everlasting life” (John 4:14).
Jesus is the fountain that refreshes your life.
