This devotional from World Vision explores the idea of Jesus as “living water” for our thirsty souls. It examines six stories from the Gospel of John to see how the Lord wants us to join Him in sharing the gift of water with those in need, both literally and figuratively. "We are dust, and to dust we will return. But we can be renewed when we drink—and share—God’s living water," says the devotional.
