Welling Up

Something to think about.

Welling Up

John 4:14, NIV: “but whoever drinks the water I give them will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give them will become in them a spring of water welling up to eternal life.'”

The word I am focusing on is “welling”  synonyms:  flow, spill, stream, run, rush, gush, roll, cascade, flood, spout.

Jesus is not speaking about real thirst which can be quenched with H2O. He is referring to the thirst of the spirit, the quest of the soul to find meaning in life. He is saying if you accept the words I give you, you will find the answer to the quest of the soul. And once you find it, it will grow into and effervescent flow that will sustain you into eternal life.

As you look at the synonyms of welling, you can see he did not simply mean sustenance he meant an overabundance of supply. So much so that, that the word of life He gives you will cascade out of you. The word of God in you cannot be capped or contained.

About Ruben

I am the owner of a custom furniture shop in Orlando, Florida. I had a heart attack back in 2010. As a result of complications from the heart attack I almost died . The road to recovery took about eighteen months and even now I still have issues to deal with. As a result of almost dying many things have changed. Most notably my concept of time. By that I mean that I am acutely aware of my mortality, not morbidly but realistically. Before the heart attack I thought I would make it to 70's, 80'S or as my mother into 90's but now I realize everyday is a gift. I don't take it for granted. That is why I write I have something to say and I want to say it, before I can't say it anymore.
