Day 8- The Living Water

Names of Christ- The Living Water

Gurgling waters in drains, ditches overflowing onto streets, and lawns squishy due to standing rain are signs that we here, in the Northwest have water. Today's projected snow will soon be melting and running into the overwet grass. I live on an island and am surrounded by water. I know what it feels like when my plants are parched in the heat of summer, the four days of blazing heat a year. Ha! Ha! Can there be too much water?

I think of the Woman at the Well. She must have let her pail down a long, long way to bring up water in the desert of Samaria. No wonder she was interested in having water provided for her another way.

       Jesus answered and said unto her, If thou knewest the gift of God, and who it is that saith to thee, Give me to drink; thou wouldest have asked of him, and he would have given thee living water.
                                                                 John 4:10

   What is living water? It is the cool, refreshing blessing of feeling His love. It is knowing how his Atonement brings you life, physically and spiritually. It is opening the scriptures and being taught by revelation from the Holy Ghost. Living water edifies and plumps up the physical and spiritual cells in your body and mind. I can't survive without it.


There are twenty-four names of Christ and twenty-four days until Christmas. Check back here to find the contents page of this series.
