Satisfying our thirst

The prophet Jeremiah refers to the Lord as the “fountain of living water.”  To a desert people, water was a constant thought and need.  No wonder the Hebrew Bible contains so many metaphors of longing for God as we long for water. The thirst for God, conscious or subconscious, is universal. Christ offers us the way to quench that thirst with the same living water he offered the Samaritan woman. His offer is not abstract or wistful; it is not a one time offer, but remains “on the table” for us. It is real if we will only make/take the time to be Present to His Presence.
