“Whoever drinks the water I shall give will never thirst.” (John 4:14)
Water is essential to our body. In most cases, the human body cannot survive without water for more than three days. After that time, the body reaches a dangerous point of collapse, possibly leading to death.
The same is true for our spirituality. A Lenten journey without Jesus, the fountain of living water, will lead to a fruitless spiritual life.
God, we pray that the Holy Spirit directs us in prayer, almsgiving, and fasting to the fountain of living water, Jesus Christ.
Peace and Goodness
Listen to the most recent episode of my podcast: One-Minute Reflection: John 13:35 (30-Days of Prayer for Unity #5) https://anchor.fm/simplediakonia/episodes/One-Minute-Reflection-John-1335-30-Days-of-Prayer-for-Unity-5-epelg2
“This is how all will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.” John 13:35
Unity is the sweet water that floods from the well of life, Jesus crucified on the cross.
Jesus’ blood and water transformed the stench of death with the fragrance of living water.
It is from the fountain of this living water, where Jesus’ disciples quench their thirst for unity so they may continue to love one another.
Lord, may our cup of discipleship be always filled with the living water from your cross.
