Fountain of Life

‘Understanding is a fountain of life to those who have it, but folly brings punishment to fools.’ Proverbs 16:22 (NIV).

For centuries people diligently sought a fountain of youth, a spring that offered eternal life and vitality. Still today people look for lotions, powders and potions that promise youthfulness, optimum health and anti-aging. And yet the Bible offers something more substantial and lasting. God’s wisdom is a fountain of life that can make a person happy, healthy, and alive forever.

When we live by God’s Word, he washes away the deadly effects of sin. Titus 3:5-7 says that ‘He saved us through the washing of rebirth and renewal by the Holy Spirit, whom he poured out on us generously through Jesus Christ our Savior, so that, having been justified by his grace, we might become heirs having the hope of eternal life.’ The hope of eternal life with Him gives us a joyful perspective on our present life. This fountain of life not only keeps and preserves us from all evil in this life but offers the promise of wholeness and health into eternity.

The fountain of youth is a fallacy, but the fountain of life is a reality, that is attainable for all who desire to put their trust in Jesus Christ. This fountain of life is a vivid image that gives us the impression of fresh, cool, life-giving water for all who are spiritually thirsty. Jesus Himself is this fountain of life who can quench our thirst forever and offer us eternal life (John 4:14).


‘Lord, I come to you because I am weary and worn out. I am thirsty for a life with you. Forgive me for looking elsewhere for the rest, refreshment and joy that you alone offer. Thank you.’

In Jesus’ Mighty Name,

Perhaps we find ourselves in a place of spiritual seeking, thirsting for more than this world has to offer. Perhaps we feel dry, tired and restless for a hope that will last beyond the latest fad of our culture. Come to Jesus the source of living water. He promises to give us true rest and refreshment. When we find the fountain of life, we will never thirst again.

Be Greatly Blessed!
