Only One Living Fountain

“O true believer, called by grace and washed in the precious blood of Jesus, thou hast tasted of better drink than the river of this world’s pleasure can give thee; thou hast had fellowship with Christ; thou hast obtained the joy of seeing Jesus, and leaning thine head upon His bosom. Do the trifles, the songs, the honors, the merriment of this earth content thee after that? If thou art wandering after the waters of Egypt, oh, return quickly to the one living fountain: the waters of Sihor may be sweet to the Egyptians, but they will prove only bitterness to thee. What hast thou to do with them? Jesus asks thee this question – what wilt thou answer Him?” -Spurgeon

I am amazed at myself sometimes, how I can spend hours longing for something that I know will not satisfy. Whether it’s some material thing, or even a seemingly righteous accomplishment. Nothing but Jesus can ever truly satiate the longing of my soul. So it is with every created soul of man. Do we get it yet?
