The Living Water of Life

A Time to Live

Melody Hendrix



A river is a conveyance of the most primordial element of life—water.
This river of water of life is a symbol of God in Christ as the Spirit flowing Himself into His redeemed people to be their life and life supply.

Jesus answered and said to her, “Everyone who drinks of this water will thirst again; but whoever drinks of the water that I will give him shall never thirst; but the water that I will give him will become in him a well of water springing up to eternal life.”
John 4:13-14


Ancient civilizations sprang up around rivers for good reason. Humans can only survive 3-5 days without water. We need water for basic life functions like circulation, respiration, and converting food to energy. After oxygen (another symbol of the Spirit), water is the body’s most important nutrient.



A river has three aspects.

Such a flowing river has a source, a course, and a flow.  (Rev. 22:1).
In these three aspects of a river, the persons of the Triune God, the move of God, and the eternal intention of God are all profoundly typified.

The Water Of Life.

I am retired and enjoying life. My hobbies are my 5 grandchildren, son and daughter, and my loving husband. I am a photographer and extreme nature lover. I love spending time in my garden or in the wilderness connected to God my Creator.

    Science says that if we ignore our bodies thirst for water, our body will cease to alert us to our need for water. Do you think when our soul ignores our need for Living water, we cease to thirst for it?
