A WELL OF WATER
Jesus answered and said unto her, If thou knewest the gift of God, and who it is that saith to thee, Give me to drink; thou wouldest have asked of him, and he would have given thee living water. The woman saith unto him, Sir, thou hast nothing to draw with, and the well is deep: from whence then hast thou that living water? . . . Jesus answered and said unto her, Whosoever drinketh of this water shall thirst again: But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life. — JOHN 4:10,11,13,14
Bible scholars know that water is a type of the Holy Spirit.
Jesus Himself used water as a type of the Spirit. When Jesus told the woman at the well of Samaria that He was the Giver of living water, she got it confused with the water in the well — natural water.
Then Jesus said, “. . . the water that I shall give . . . shall be . . . a well of water springing up into everlasting life.”
He was talking about the New Birth, the well of living water within the believer.
I have drunk the living water, and I thirst no more. I am born of the Spirit of God. God’s Spirit is in me. A well of water is in me springing up into everlasting life.
