Singh: the Living Water

Saturday, October 28, 2017
    Feast of Simon & Jude, Apostles
    Jesus answered her, “If you knew the gift of God and who it is that asks you for a drink, you would have asked him and he would have given you living water.”
    —John 4:13-14 (NIV)
    From time immemorial men have quenched their thirst with water without knowing anything about its chemical constituents. In like manner we do not need to be instructed in all the mysteries of doctrine, but we do need to receive the Living Water which Jesus Christ will give us and which alone can satisfy our souls.
    ... Sadhu Sundar Singh (1889-1929), quoted in The Gospel of Sadhu Sundar Singh, Friedrich Heiler & Olive Wyon, G. Allen & Unwin, Ltd., 1927, p. 239 (see the book)
    See also John 4:7-14; Ex. 17:6; Ps. 36:8-9; 46:4; Isa. 12:3; 44:3; Jer. 2:13; Zech. 14:8; John 7:37-39; 1 Cor. 10:1-4; Rev. 7:17; 21:6
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, I drink of the Living Water.
