Thirst...

John 4:13-14 “Everyone who drinks of this water will be thirsty again, 14 but whoever drinks of the water that I will give him will never be thirsty again. The water that I will give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life.” 

How much time do we spend chasing after things that will never satisfy?

  • If I could make more money...
  • If I could have more relationships...
  • If I was more successful in my career...
  • If I could have a nicer home...
The problem is that once we attain these things that we spend so much time chasing we realize they don't satisfy; therefore we must have more and more and more.

It's like the Oasis in the desert that we can never quite get to. It's like the field goal post that we keep chasing after, but every time we get close to it the post moves a little bit further away.

If you keep 'drinking this water' you will have to come back tomorrow, and then you will have to come back the next day. 

BUT, if you spend your life pursuing Jesus Christ you will find the satisfaction that you long for. 

Only Jesus can fill the void in your life, only Jesus can give you the purpose worth living for.
