Hydrate or Die-drate

The phrase "hydrate or die-drate" is a humorous athletic bon mot to stay hydrated to prevent physical harm during tough workouts. However, when we apply the same principle to our spiritual lives, we realize that neglecting to hydrate our souls can have eternal consequences.

In John 4:13-14, Jesus tells a Samaritan woman that the water he offers will quench her spiritual thirst forever, unlike the physical water from a well that will only temporarily satisfy her physical thirst. This living water of salvation is available to all who believe in Jesus and accept him as their savior. If we neglect to drink from the living water of salvation, we leave our souls dehydrated and vulnerable to spiritual harm. We may feel spiritually parched and dissatisfied, and our spiritual health may deteriorate over time. Our souls will wither away without the nourishment that only Jesus can provide.

On the other hand, if we regularly drink from the living water of salvation, we quench our spiritual thirst and experience a deep sense of fulfillment and satisfaction. This water constantly nourishes and refreshes our souls, helping us to grow in our relationship with God and become more like Jesus.

So, let’s take seriously the importance of "hydrating" our souls by regularly drinking from the living water of salvation. May we remember that this water is available to all who believe in Jesus and that we will never go thirsty again through him.
