In Jewish culture dead water referred to standing or stored water. Living water referred to moving water, as in rivers, springs, rainfall. Such living water was precious because it was fresh, it came directly from God
In John 4:12, Jesus offers Samaritan woman living waters, here it means that the more we come to Jesus, through His word and prayer, the more we experience Spiritual renewal
John 3:5: Jesus says that no one can see the kingdom of heaven without becoming reborn from the water and spirit, this means that when child of God becomes reborn, the Spirit of God within comes alive, and thereafter this child will become Spiritually renewed and receive revelation of the Truth of Jesus Christ and himself
Jesus Christ is in you, all He is waiting for is relationship with you.
John 4:13-14 "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."
How often don't we feel stagnant in life? Stagnant in our jobs, stagnant in our relationships and stagnant in our walk with the Lord. As tough as it may be to accept or admit, and despite it being much easier and more convenient to blame those around us, our circumstances, trials and tribulations, it is inescapably only when we ourselves impede the flow in our lives that our personal and spiritual growth is dramatically slowed down, even to the point of stagnation. We then often succumb to the hum drum of life, extremely frustrated with our status quo. As with water stagnation, spiritual stagnation adversely affects not only our own life, but also the lives of those around us.
Thankfully, the water which the Lord gives us to drink of and to be filled with is living water (John 4:10). It is strong flowing like a river and never runs out or dries up. It always refreshes and purifies our heart, mind and soul and it is a well of living water springing up within us into everlasting life. John 7:37-38 says, "In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink. He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water."
Today, let us not hinder the flow or draw from the stagnant wells of this world, our circumstances or our trials, but, rather, may we be encouraged to eagerly thirst after and drink of the refreshing, healing and purifying living water which comes only from our Lord Jesus Christ, saying, "Sir, give me this water, that I thirst not...", John 4:15. May the sufficiency of the living water of Christ Jesus be evidenced in our lives and may it overflow through our testimony; to the benefit of our own standing in Christ and to the benefit of those around us.
