I Am the Water


I was at the sink emptying my water bottle the other morning so I could fill it up with cold, fresh, clean new water. I have this habit of filling a bottle of water, taking a couple drinks, then leaving it there for a couple of days before pouring it out and starting all over again. I usually have a couple of different beverages going at my desk. A bottle of water, a cup of coffee, maybe some juice or a leftover cup from yesterday's lunch. 


So as I was emptying the water and it seemed like it wasn't pouring out quite fast enough for me because it was so full - it struck me what a waste it was. Many people in the world have no clean drinking water and here I am just pouring it down the drain to get some that is a little more "fresh" than yesterday's. We always hear about different efforts to help those people who are without to get clean drinking water to fulfill their physical needs. But that made me think of a different kind of water which made me think of a song...

I Am the Water

Sir but you have nothing to draw with
He heard the doubting woman say
So how do you expect to reach this water
And quench my thirst today

He said I am the Water, I am the Life
There’s no need to search for another
All power of heaven is mine
He said I am your Maker
I am your only chance to survive
I am the Water and I will never run dry

So many times I’ve lowered my bucket
Into the cold dark well of sin
And it always hits the dry and dusty bottom
Where he gently reminds me again

He said I am the Water, I am the Life
There’s no need to search for another
All power of heaven is mine
He said I am your Maker
I am your only chance to survive
I am the Water and I will never run dry

This song refers to the account in John chapter 4. In verse 13 Jesus says ,"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."
