Did you hear about the west Texas farmer who had to sell a large part of his land because he couldn’t get any water. He drilled and drilled again and again. All he could get was oil.

We laugh about that but there are times when water is the need. We have heard of the problem lately in Flint, Michigan and the contaminated water supply. People there have to use bottled drinking water because the tap water is toxic.

The most important commodity in the world is water. Most of the countries where we do mission work has water problems, either not enough of it or it is polluted. We insist that our mission volunteers drink bottled water to prevent illness. In most of the world, people have to walk miles for their water or it is too toxic to drink. Many have devices on their roof to collect water during the rainy season to sustain them during the dry seasons.

I am getting ready to go again to Romania. The contribution of Romania to the Gulf wars was water. It came from the springs up on the mountains. There is no other drink better than cool, clean, clear, fresh spring water.

It is true you will die from thirst before hunger. The British poet Samuel Taylor Coleridge wrote in

‘The Rime of the Ancient Mariner”, “water, water everywhere, but not a drop to drink.”

Finding pure potable water is essential. Our missionaries dig deep wells to provide the locals this vital necessity. the search for good water never ends. One of my greatest concerns as I travel is that the water I drink is safe.

Remember when Jesus approached the woman at the well. He broke all the religious and social barriers just to approach her. He then offered her the Living Water, of which she would never thirst again. He touched the very core of man’s ultimate need: eternal life.

No wonder she ran back to her village and was the first to proclaim Him as the “Savior of the world.”  Yes, Jesus is the water of life!

Help us share the water of life with a thirsty world this year.
