Isaiah 12:3 – “Therefore with joy shall ye draw water out of the wells of salvation.”
The theological definition of the word ‘salvation’ is, “deliverance from sin and its consequences, brought about by faith in Jesus Christ.” The Bible tells us that we are saved when we repent of our sins and confess with our mouths that Jesus is Lord. Jesus paid the ultimate price for our salvation – His life. Just as Jesus was raised back to life, we too are born again into a new life with Him.
We can joyously draw from the inexhaustible well of God’s grace, but we cannot take the gift of salvation lightly. In John 4:14, Jesus tells the Samaritan woman, “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.” Jesus is the source of living water, our never drying fountain. He freely offers grace and mercy when we seek Him.
As we walk in closer fellowship with the Lord, His Spirit dwells in us. We become a channel for His love to flow through us and into the lives of others around us. When we drink from the wells of salvation, we are filled with more of Christ and we start embodying His traits. As our lives overflow with the goodness of God, let us be intentional in sharing the same with those we interact with.
