The John 4:14 Wellspring The Purest Water is At The Head of The Wellspring
John 4:14 But 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. (KJV)
A well of water springing up to Eternal Life is His promise to us that drink of Him. If that well is the source within you, it has become a resource that not only you, but others will draw from.
That water is fresh; it is truth; it is the only way to life; it is not polluted. By it we are constantly being taught by God’s Holy Spirit. It flows in and out of us again and again, and into others. Jesus is the only way to this well. He is the only way to keep this well spring pure, what we believe concerning Him must come only from that well, if we drink from another well we become confused with polluted thought, and we can become sick and eventually die if we insist on continuing to drink of other polluted water.
The Holy Spirit is the only source of the life giving water in Christ, so how else other than also drinking from a polluted well does the body explain the impurity in its message? How else can this one body possess many competing doctrines?
That well within you is a Holy Fountain pouring out His word into you. His is a pure word. The water from the Spirit that overflows from you to others that they too may draw life from — is it drawn from God’s Holy Spirit teaching you the word? — or is it drawn from man’s word?
So the Spirit within us is the source of life, and it is He who teaches us in the way of life. He sows into us the word of life. Through prayer and study He leads us into His truth of life. All He asks is that we have eyes to see, ears to hear, and faith as a mustard seed, to believe. The Spirit is our teacher, the Bible is our text book. Every message of man should either stand or fall as it is compared to His word.
1 Corinthians 2:10 But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.
1 Corinthians 2:11 For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God.
1 Corinthians 2:12 Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God.
1 Corinthians 2:13 Which things also we speak, not in the words which man’s wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual.
1 Corinthians 2:14 But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.
1 Corinthians 2:15 But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man. (KJV)
God bless you as you study His word in the power of His Spirit.
The purest water is always at the head of the wellspring.
