Here begins a new series of key messages for Lifeway Church. Jesus uses water as a metaphor for the work of the Holy Spirit on a few occasions. To a Samaritan woman he promises “Whoever drinks the water I give will never thirst”. But in the famous Beatitudes passage (Matthew 5) he says “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness”. So God honours the right kind of thirst – for the “water” that only He can give.
