After one of the great battles in the Civil War we were coming down the Tennessee River with a company of wounded men. It was in the spring of the year, and the water was not clear. You know that the cry of a wounded man is, “Water! water!” especially in a hot country. I remember taking a glass of the muddy water to one of these men. Although he was very thirsty, he only drank a little. He handed the glass back, and as he did so, he said—
“Oh, for a draught of water from my father’s well!”
Are there any thirsty ones here? Come and drink of the fountain opened in Christ! Your longing will be satisfied, and you will never thirst again.

This is a very good reminder that only the Fresh, Clean and Satisfying Water from the one who can give us the living water only found in Him.
(this is so true that muddy water does not satisfy) but that cool refreshing drink of crystal clear and clean water definitely does.)

Key Verse: John 4:14 (KJV)
