“Whosoever Drinketh of the Water That I Shall Give Him Shall Never Thirst”
14 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.
Elder Alexander B. Morrison said:
“What . . . is the source of the spiritual nourishment we need? Where can it be found? Jesus, as always, had the answer. To the Samaritan woman at Jacob’s well, He proclaimed, ‘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).
“The woman, puzzled and unsure of the meaning of Jesus’s words and not knowing His true identity, exclaimed, ‘I know that Messias cometh, which is called Christ: when he is come, he will tell us all things’ (John 4:25).
“Then said Jesus, in words of such calm assurance and power that they ring in our hearts two millennia later, ‘I that speak unto thee am he’ (John 4:26; italics added).
“Jesus, then, is the living water which we require for constant nourishment of our spirits.”
