Lent – Sunday – March 27

John 4:13-14

Thirsting is a cinch. The list of things for which we thirst is long: prosperity, a long life, good friends, meaningful work, health, wealth, wisdom. One thirst is quenched and another shows up for duty. It is endless. Jesus knows this. So he comes with new water. It is cool and pure and one sip quenches for eternity. He is this water. He pours himself into us and makes this promise: I am with you. You are mine. It is settled. Thirst no more.

Sir, give me this water that I may never be thirsty. Amen.
