The fountain of Life

Psalm 36:9

Where we draw from and drink from becomes what flows into our lives.

“For with you is the fountain of life; in your light we see light.”

Psalms 36:9 NIVUK

Today, you can buy a bottle of ’fountain of life’ liquid that contains high antioxidants from a plant called Lignans extracted from Norwegian Spruce tree, which promises to have extensive amounts of health benefit. These golden drops promise prolonged youth and miraculous health.  

Most of us know that there is no plant, pledges or person to carry that kind of outcome, still, we fall under their spell. Those promises seem to speak to our deeper desires and awaken our eternal longing. 

We are made for eternity and eternity we seek. 

God offers eternal life and eternal youth and sickness free bodies, but it’s not by drinking expensive drops that man offers, but by immersing ourselves at the true fountain of life. Jesus 

Jesus said that : He is the way, he is the truth and he is the life… if we want life, real life, he is the place to get it from. And not only that, he promises to be the light by which we see everything else. The knowledge of understanding him, the world and ourselves rests with him. 

The pleasure, the joy, the abundance, the meaning, the refreshing, the living, all floes from him also. 

What/who is the fountain that you draw life and light from? 

(See John 8:12, Revelation 21:6, Isaiah 12:3)
