We have so much, and yet we still want more! What is wrong with us? Today’s devotional gives a great answer. My thanks to Randy Beaver for reminding me of it. God bless you.
Because of Calvary,
John 4:14 (ESV)
but whoever drinks of the water that I will give him will never be thirsty again. The water that I will give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life.
“Thousands of men have every temporal good thing that heart could wish, and are yet weary and dissatisfied. It is now as it was in David’s time, ― ‘There be many that say who will show us any good.’ (Psalm iv.6.) Riches, and rank, and place, and power, and learning, and amusements, are utterly unable to fill the soul. He that only drinks of these waters is sure to thirst again. Every Ahab finds a Naboth’s vineyard hard by his palace, and every Haman sees a Mordecai at the gate. There is no heart satisfaction in this world, until we are believers on Christ. Jesus alone can fill up the empty places of our inward man. Jesus alone an give solid, lasting, enduring happiness. The peace that He imparts is a fountain, which, once set flowing within the soul, flows to all eternity. Its waters may have their ebbing seasons; but they are living waters, and they shall never be completely dried.” [J. C. Ryle, Expository Thoughts on the Gospels III, (Grand Rapids: Baker Book House, 1856-1873) , p. 203-204]
