Thirst Again

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 KJV

An extremely profound statement: "Whoever drinks of this water will thirst again." This statement should be written over every ambition you have.

What is it that you are hoping to attain in life? What is it that you think will bring satisfaction and fulfillment? What goals are you pressing toward? What possessions are you striving to acquire? Whatever it is, write over the topn of it, "Drink of this water, but you will thirst again". There is nothing in the material realm that will satisfy our spiritual thirst.
