7. RIVER OF LIVING WATER.
(AF, November 1906, 2)
In the 4th chapter of John, the words come, “Jesus answered and said unto
her, If thou knewest the gift of God and who it is that saith to thee Give me
to drink, thou wouldest have asked of Him and He would have given the
living water.” Praise God for the living waters today that flow freely, for it
comes from God to every hungry and thirsty heart. Jesus said, “He that be-
lieveth on me, as the Scripture hath said, out of his inmost being shall flow
rivers of living waters.” Then we are able to go in the mighty name of Jesus
to the ends of the earth and water dry places, deserts and solitary places,
until these parched, sad, lonely hearts are made to rejoice in the God of their
salvation. We want the rivers today. Hallelujah! Glory to God in the highest!
In Jesus Christ we get forgiveness of sin, and we get sanctification of our
spirit, soul, and body, and upon that we get the gift of the Holy Ghost that
Jesus promised to His disciples, the promise of the Father. All this we get
through the atonement. Hallelujah!
The prophet said that he had bourne [sic] our griefs and carried our sor-
rows. He was wounded for our transgressions, bruised for our iniquities,
the chastisement of our peace was upon Him and with His stripes we are
healed. So we get healing, health, salvation, joy, life—everything in Jesus.
Glory to God!
There are many wells today, but they are dry. There are many hungry souls
today that are empty. But let us come to Jesus and take Him at His word and
we will find wells of salvation, and be able to draw waters out of the well of
salvation, for Jesus is that well.
At this time Jesus was weary from a long journey, and He sat on the well
in Samaria, and a woman came to draw water. He asked her for a drink. She
answered, “How is it that thou being a Jew askest drink of me who am a
woman of Samaria, for the Jews have no dealings with the Samarians?” Jesus
said, “If thou knewest the gift of God, and who it is that saith to thee, give
me to drink, thou wouldst have asked of him and he would have given thee
living water.”
O, how sweet it was to see Jesus, the Lamb of God that takes away the
sin of the world, that great sacrifice that God had given to a lost, dying, and
benighted world, sitting on the well and talking with the woman; so gentle,
so meek, and so kind that it gave her an appetite to talk further with Him,
