Living Water

One of our women's Bible studies was about Jesus' conversation with the Samaritan woman at the well.  He told her about living water that would spring up into everlasting life.  It occurred to me that this is an astounding reflection of God in His creation.  Though many scientists are atheists, their quest to find life in the universe often begins with water.  They are unaware of the role they are playing in a message from God, imbedded in the natural world, pointing back to Himself.  They can see the crucial part water plays in the physical realm but are blind to the thirst in their own souls.  But some will see, and drink, and live forever.

But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.
~John 4:14
