A Middle East proverb declares that a person who finds water in a desert and doesn’t tell anyone is no friend of God.
That proverb comes to mind when I think of how reluctant those who claim Christ as Savior are to share this faith. If indeed He is the Living Water that cleanses and satisfies our bodies, minds and souls why don’t we share him with a world that is so desperately in need of this valuable resource?
It is a cruel and one might posit even evil person who says they know where the water is but is unwilling to share it.
An eternity in hell awaits some of our closest friends, dearest family and even our casual acquaintances and colleagues. We know the struggles they face here on Earth and the consequences of never having a right relationship with their Creator God. We know where the water is, but we refuse to tell them.
I pray that God would convict us of our reluctance, refusal and neglect to lead people to the source of eternal life found only in Jesus the Christ.
Don’t let another day pass without telling someone where the water is. Their eternity may depend upon you personally pointing them to the Source.
Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink. John 7:37 KJV
