The Spring of My Youth

 Displaying IMG_0227.JPGOne of my fondest childhood memories was an underground spring that is located in the woods of western Pennsylvania. We (and everyone from miles around) would go there from time to time and fill containers with the cool, clear water. Even on the hottest day, the water was always cold and I have never known this spring to ever run dry.

I went back this week to revisit “my” spring and it was still flowing, still cold and still refreshing.(See attached picture.)  I feel sorry for those who grew up in the city and never experienced drinking from “God’s Spring!

The only water that tastes better is from the spring that produces eternal life. It is always flowing and always refreshing and gives eternal life. You may never go to Pennsylvania and drink from that spring but make sure you drink from the well of salvation. 

Indeed, the water I give them will become in them a spring of water welling up to eternal life.” John 4:14
