Pause…
Take a couple of deep breaths.
Recall that you are in the presence of God.
You are loved and blessed.

John 4:13-14
13 Jesus said to her, “Everyone who drinks of this water will be thirsty again, 14 but those who drink of the water that I will give them will never be thirsty. The water that I will give will become in them a spring of water gushing up to eternal life.”

Jesus often talks in metaphors and symbols. What is the water he is speaking of? Water is to life as living water is to eternal life. Perhaps this living water is grace, sanctifying grace. Perhaps it is faith the that allows one to accept Jesus as Lord and savior.

What do I need to do to have eternal life?
The Bible speaks plainly here:
Acts 16:31 They answered, “Believe on the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved, you and your household.”
Mat 19:21 Jesus said to him, “If you wish to be perfect, go, sell your possessions, and give the money to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; then come, follow me.”
John 3:16 “For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him may not perish but may have eternal life.

Thank you Jesus
For your love and your sacrifice.
For the gift of eternal life.
Strengthen my faith and trust in You
Help me draw closer to you.
Amen
