Spring Wells

Just as Jesus is King of kings and Lord of lords, so His Word is the Water of waters.

What is a “springing well?”  It is one in which the water comes not from a reservoir of water beneath the ground, but from a spring that lies hidden beneath the surface of the earth.  What does this say about the water of life that is within every believer in God’s kingdom?  Volumes, my friend, volumes.  But allow me to briefly address that well of water that in within you that is “a well of water springing up into everlasting life.”  Stop for a moment to singularly consider these words of Jesus regarding the life of God within every believer.  Consider what Jesus said.

The believer should “never thirst again.”  Yet how many believers today seem to be so dry in their walk, witness, and work for the kingdom of God?  This should not be, for within each believer is “a well of water springing up into everlasting life.”  If we were considering a well drawing from a reservoir, we might understand how some might eventually run dry.  But we are NOT considering a reservoir, but a “well of water springing up into everlasting life.”  Though it may seem redundant to say it again and again, it truly cannot be overstressed.  The life we have in us is ETERNAL.  The “well of water” we have in us is “springing up into everlasting life.”  This everlasting springing is ETERNAL!

And what’s more, this is an ETERNAL WELL that springs eternal bringing the life of God within every believer.  But this is NOT the “rivers of living water” of which Jesus spoke that do not spring up within us, but flow out from us.  Dear one, there is a difference between a “well” and “rivers.”  The “well” within us is certainly springing up bringing life, but there are also “rivers” that should be flowing out of us that flow forth with power.  A well will not turn the dynamos of a hydroelectric dam, but a river will.  Imagine what “rivers” will do.  And those “rivers,” if flowing unimpeded, will enable us to enjoy the life springing up from the “well.”  But we must have the “well” before the “rivers” begin to flow.  Make sure your spring is clear and springing up freely.  There is power waiting.
