John 4:13-14 KJV
Jesus answered and said unto her, Whosoever drinketh of this water shall thirst again: [14] But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.

The fourth chapter of John tells us a beautiful story about this Samaritan woman who met Jesus. It was at Jacobs well where she had come for her regular collection of water. The story has it that Jesus asked her for water, but moments later, in a twist of events, Jesus offers her water instead. He said:

“Jesus answered and said unto her, Whosoever drinketh of this water shall thirst again: But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.”  John 4:13-14. The point here is simple. You come to a well often because you run out of supply. I offer to put the source right within you. You’d carry a well within you.

This was all a figure of speech to describe the Christian experience. Once upon a time, David would say: “I was glad when they said unto me, Let us go into the house of the LORD.” Psalm 122:1. By “house of God” he referred to Old Testament ‘Temples’. He had told us Why he loved to go there elsewhere. He said: “They shall be abundantly satisfied with the fatness of thy house; and thou shalt make them drink of the river of thy pleasures”. Psalm 36:8. There’s a river in God’s house. River of course, is a metaphor for satisfaction- something that quenches your thirst (the same metaphor Jesus called well). David says this satisfaction comes when you ‘go’ to the house of God.

But in Christ, you became the house of God. You don’t ‘go’ anywhere for satisfaction. The source resides in you now. Right in your home, you can stir up amazing bliss. But you must stop seeing yourself as needy. The Lord says that you’d never thirst again. Believe it. Even right now as you ready yourself for the day ahead, stir up some glory. It’s all in you.
