There is a native plant that grows up in the trees here in Florida that’s hardly ever noticed until it rains. If you do see it before the rains, it looks dead. It’s called resurrection fern. It goes from a dead, dried up looking, shriveled brown mess to a vibrant green, fully alive fern within a matter of hours. You’re hearing about it today because we’ve been having rain and I can see it in our trees again! This gives you a clear picture of why the Holy Spirit is often referred to as water. Water gives life. The Holy Spirit gives us life through surrendering to Jesus and never leaves us. He is living water, and we will never be thirsty again! We are very similar to that fern. When we turn our back on Jesus, we begin to dry out and shrivel up. We aren’t dead, but the further away from Jesus we wander, the more dry we become. We just need the Holy Spirit watering us back to life. Fill up on Jesus and the Holy Spirit every day!
Jesus said to her, "Everyone who drinks of this water will be thirsty again, but whoever drinks of the water that I will give him will never be thirsty again. The water that I will give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life." John 4:13-14
