Living Water

One of my family's favorite day trips is to go to one of the many nearby rivers and streams.  We pack up a picnic lunch, take the kids and the dog, find a spot that allows swimming and splashing and we spend the entire day together.  The girls always start off a little hesitant because of the cold of the water, but soon, they are swimming around like so many fishes.  It is always one of our best memories of the entire summer. 

Water, it is such an amazing thing to experience. It gives us pleasure, enjoyment, satisfaction and life. I am sure that it was no accident that the Savior is referred to as "living water".

In John 4:14, the Savior taught that “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.”
The Gospel of Jesus Christ is full of His tender mercies.  He heals our broken hearts, brings meaning into our lives, binds loved ones together forever, and brings great joy. It is a gospel that gives us wings to fly.
As we learn to embrace the Gospel more fully, we are filled with wonder and love. Our Savior proclaimed,
“I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.” John 10:10
He wants us to have abundance! He wants us to be happy! He wants us to be a joyful people!
Believe with all your hearts that He loves you, that He is mindful of you, that He wants you to return to Him. All is not lost. No matter what has happened in your life, His living waters are there for you to immerse yourself in. They are pure and clean and refreshing.

May each one of us drink deeply and often from the living waters of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
