There are many benefits from being in the mountains. One of the great things is the fresh water. Anyone who has been able to drink from a mountain stream knows what I’m talking about.
Sometimes the water comes from snow melt, other times from soaks and small streams that form to make a clear flowing river.
If you have ever climbed up the side of a mountain and found a small stream they are a welcome sight! On many occasions I have worked hard to get to a particular spot and on the way taken a drink from a mountain water source. The water is certainly cold, but also clear and pure. Nothing beats it!
When Jesus says He is the water of life it is a significant thing! He is not referring to some dirty back creek that’s muddy and polluted but rather a pure stream that refreshes our deepest thirst. A thirst that goes beyond physical and into the spiritual.
How do we get it, this water of life? Well actually we start by asking. Simple as that!
