Because God’s goodness is His most excellent glory, even from when He created the foundations of the earth, it has been God’s intention to lavish us with life overflowing with abundance and goodness. You might want to review the sections His Creativity, His Lavish Generosity, and His Gifts before reading here, because they offer an excellent foundation for understanding the height, depth, width, and breadth of God’s desire to bless with vibrant life.
 
One Life-giver from your Father God’s Heart to yours is His water. These waters are symbolic of many things. As you read the following verses, see if you can identify what waters symbolize. Here is a wonderful promise using water to symbolize ministry and service to others:
 
Proverbs 11:25
    25The liberal [generous] person shall be enriched, and he who waters shall himself be watered.

 
In the next passage, the river is a metaphor describing the healing work of God’s Spirit. As we partner with His Spirit, His living water will increase, as it does here – first reaching to the ankles, then to the knees, and afterward, in verse 5, the waters were so high that the only option was to swim.
 
Pay attention to verses 8 and 12: where the River goes, healing will accompany it. For greater insights into Holy Spirit’s marvelous work, go to the section called He Empowers.
 
Ezekiel 47:1-12
    1Then he [my guide] brought me again to the door of the house [of the Lord--the temple], and behold, waters issued out from under the threshold of the temple toward the east, for the front of the temple was toward the east; and the waters came down from under, from the right side of the temple, on the south side of the altar.
    2Then he brought me out by way of the north gate and led me around outside to the outer gate by the way that faces east, and behold, waters were running out on the right side.
    3And when the man went on eastward with the measuring line in his hand, he measured a thousand cubits, and he caused me to pass through the waters, waters that were ankle-deep.
    4Again he measured a thousand cubits and caused me to pass through the waters, waters that reached to the knees. Again he measured a thousand cubits and caused me to pass through the waters, waters that reached to the loins.
    5Afterward he measured a thousand, and it was a river that I could not pass through, for the waters had risen, waters to swim in, a river that could not be passed over or through.
    6And he said to me, Son of man, have you seen this? Then he led me and caused me to return to the bank of the river.
    7Now when I had returned, behold, on the bank of the river were very many trees on the one side and on the other.
    8Then he said to me, These waters pour out toward the eastern region and go down into the Arabah (the Jordan Valley) and on into the Dead Sea. And when they shall enter into the sea [the sea of putrid waters], the waters shall be healed and made fresh.
    9And wherever the double river shall go, every living creature which swarms shall live. And there shall be a very great number of fish, because these waters go there that [the waters of the sea] may be healed and made fresh; and everything shall live wherever the river goes.
    10The fishermen shall stand on [the banks of the Dead Sea]; from En-gedi even to En-eglaim shall be a place to spread nets; their fish shall be of very many kinds, as the fish of the Great or Mediterranean Sea.
    11But its swamps and marshes will not become wholesome for animal life; they shall [as the river subsides] be left encrusted with salt and given over to it.
    12And on the banks of the river on both its sides, there shall grow all kinds of trees for food; their leaf shall not fade nor shall their fruit fail [to meet the demand]. Each tree shall bring forth new fruit every month, [these supernatural qualities being] because their waters came from out of the sanctuary. And their fruit shall be for food and their leaves for healing.
 

His living water doesn’t only bring healing. You can be sure that the water that comes from the Heart of the Father will ensure you never thirst again. In fact, that is precisely what He said to the Samaritan woman:
 
John 4:7-42
    7Presently, when a woman of Samaria came along to draw water, Jesus said to her, Give Me a drink--
    8For His disciples had gone off into the town to buy food--
    9The Samaritan woman said to Him, How is it that You, being a Jew, ask me, a Samaritan [and a] woman, for a drink?--For the Jews have nothing to do with the Samaritans--
    10Jesus answered her, If you had only known and had recognized God's gift and Who this is that is saying to you, Give Me a drink, you would have asked Him [instead] and He would have given you living water.
    11She said to Him, Sir, You have nothing to draw with [no drawing bucket] and the well is deep; how then can You provide living water? [Where do You get Your living water?]
    12Are You greater than and superior to our ancestor Jacob, who gave us this well and who used to drink from it himself, and his sons and his cattle also?
    13Jesus answered her, All who drink of this water will be thirsty again.
    14But whoever takes a drink of the water that I will give him shall never, no never, be thirsty any more. But the water that I will give him shall become a spring of water welling up (flowing, bubbling) [continually] within him unto (into, for) eternal life.
    15The woman said to Him, Sir, give me this water, so that I may never get thirsty nor have to come [continually all the way] here to draw.
    16At this, Jesus said to her, Go, call your husband and come back here.
    17The woman answered, I have no husband. Jesus said to her, You have spoken truly in saying, I have no husband.
    18For you have had five husbands, and the man you are now living with is not your husband. In this you have spoken truly.
    19The woman said to Him, Sir, I see and understand that You are a prophet.
    20Our forefathers worshiped on this mountain, but you [Jews] say that Jerusalem is the place where it is necessary and proper to worship.
    21Jesus said to her, Woman, believe Me, a time is coming when you will worship the Father neither [merely] in this mountain nor [merely] in Jerusalem.
    22You [Samaritans] do not know what you are worshiping [you worship what you do not comprehend]. We do know what we are worshiping [we worship what we have knowledge of and understand], for [after all] salvation comes from [among] the Jews.
    23Atime will come, however, indeed it is already here, when the true (genuine) worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and in truth (reality); for the Father is seeking just such people as these as His worshipers.
    24God is a Spirit (a spiritual Being) and those who worship Him must worship Him in spirit and in truth (reality).
    25The woman said to Him, I know that Messiah is coming, He Who is called the Christ (the Anointed One); and when He arrives, He will tell us everything we need to know and make it clear to us.
    26Jesus said to her, I Who now speak with you am He.
    27Just then His disciples came and they wondered (were surprised, astonished) to find Him talking with a woman [a married woman]. However, not one of them asked Him, What are You inquiring about? or What do You want? or, Why do You speak with her?
    28Then the woman left her water jar and went away to the town. And she began telling the people,
    29Come, see a Man Who has told me everything that I ever did! Can this be [is not this] the Christ? [Must not this be the Messiah, the Anointed One?]
    30So the people left the town and set out to go to Him.
    31Meanwhile, the disciples urged Him saying, Rabbi, eat something.
    32But He assured them, I have food (nourishment) to eat of which you know nothing and have no idea.
    33So the disciples said one to another, Has someone brought Him something to eat?
    34Jesus said to them, My food (nourishment) is to do the will (pleasure) of Him Who sent Me and to accomplish and completely finish His work.
    35Do you not say, It is still four months until harvest time comes? Look! I tell you, raise your eyes and observe the fields and see how they are already white for harvesting.
    36Already the reaper is getting his wages [he who does the cutting now has his reward], for he is gathering fruit (crop) unto life eternal, so that he who does the planting and he who does the reaping may rejoice together.
    37For in this the saying holds true, One sows and another reaps.
    38I sent you to reap a crop for which you have not toiled. Other men have labored and you have stepped in to reap the results of their work.
    39Now numerous Samaritans from that town believed in and trusted in Him because of what the woman said when she declared and testified, He told me everything that I ever did.
    40So when the Samaritans arrived, they asked Him to remain with them, and He did stay there two days.
    41Then many more believed in and adhered to and relied on Him because of His personal message [what He Himself said].
    42And they told the woman, Now we no longer believe (trust, have faith) just because of what you said; for we have heard Him ourselves [personally], and we know that He truly is the Savior of the world, the Christ.
 

One of the last verses of the Bible invites you to enjoy this same water:
 
Revelation 22:17
    17The [Holy] Spirit and the bride (the church, the true Christians) say, Come! And let him who is listening say, Come! And let everyone come who is thirsty [who is painfully conscious of his need of those things by which the soul is refreshed, supported, and strengthened]; and whoever [earnestly] desires to do it, let him come, take, appropriate, and drink the water of Life without cost.
 

Let's look at other verses having to do with His life-giving, supernatural water:
 
Isaiah 27:2-3
    2In that day, A vineyard beloved and lovely; sing a responsive song to it and about it!
    3 I, the Lord, am its Keeper; I water it every moment; lest anyone harm it, I guard and keep it night and day.
 
Psalm 33:6-9
    6By the Word of the Lord were the heavens made, and all their host by the breath of His mouth.
    7He gathers the waters of the sea as in a bottle; He puts the deeps in storage places.
    8Let all the earth fear the Lord [respect and worship Him]; let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of Him.
    9For He spoke, and it was done; He commanded, and it stood fast.
 
Isaiah 40:12-14
    12Who has measured the waters in the hollow of his hand, marked off the heavens with a [nine-inch] span, enclosed the dust of the earth in a measure, and weighed the mountains in scales and the hills in a balance?
    13Who has directed the Spirit of the Lord, or as His counselor has taught Him?
    14With whom did He take counsel, that instruction might be given Him? Who taught Him the path of justice and taught Him knowledge and showed Him the way of understanding?
 
Isaiah 43:2
    2When you pass through the waters, I will be with you, and through the rivers, they will not overwhelm you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned or scorched, nor will the flame kindle upon you.
 
Isaiah 43:16
    16Thus says the Lord, Who makes a way through the sea and a path through the mighty waters
 
Isaiah 43:2
    2When you pass through the waters, I will be with you, and through the rivers, they will not overwhelm you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned or scorched, nor will the flame kindle upon you.
 
Isaiah 43:16
    16Thus says the Lord, Who makes a way through the sea and a path through the mighty waters
 
Isaiah 43:18-21
    18Do not [earnestly] remember the former things; neither consider the things of old.
    19Behold, I AM doing a new thing! Now it springs forth; do you not perceive and know it and will you not give heed to it? I will even make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.
    20The beasts of the field honor Me, the jackals and the ostriches, because I give waters in the wilderness and rivers in the desert, to give drink to My people, My chosen,
    21The people I formed for Myself, that they may set forth My praise [and they shall do it].
 
Isaiah 44:3-4
    3For I will pour [My] water upon him who is thirsty, and floods upon the dry ground. I will pour My Spirit upon your offspring, and My blessing upon your descendants.
    4And they shall spring up among the grass like willows or poplars by the watercourses.
 
Isaiah 49:8-13
    8Thus says the Lord, In an acceptable and favorable time I have heard and answered you, and in a day of salvation I have helped you; and I will preserve you and give you for a covenant to the people, to raise up and establish the land [from its present state of ruin] and to apportion and cause them to inherit the desolate heritages,
    9Saying to those who are bound, Come forth, and to those who are in [spiritual] darkness, Show yourselves [come into the light of the Sun of righteousness]. They shall feed in all the ways [in which they go], and their pastures shall be [not in deserts, but] on all the bare [grass-covered] hills.
    10They will not hunger or thirst, neither will mirage [mislead] or scorching wind or sun smite [harm] them; for He Who has mercy on them will lead them, and by springs of water will He guide them.
    11And I will make all My mountains a way, and My highways will be raised up.
    12Behold, these shall come from afar--and, behold, these from the north and from the west, and these from the land of Sinim (China).
    13Sing for joy, O heavens, and be joyful, O earth, and break forth into singing, O mountains! For the Lord has comforted His people and will have compassion upon His afflicted.
 
Isaiah 55:1-2
    1Wait and listen, everyone who is thirsty! Come to the waters; and he who has no money, come, buy and eat! Yes, come, buy [priceless, spiritual] wine and milk without money and without price [simply for the self-surrender that accepts the blessing].
    2Why do you spend your money for that which is not bread, and your earnings for what does not satisfy? Hearken diligently to Me, and eat what is good, and let your soul delight itself in fatness [the profuseness of spiritual joy].
 
Isaiah 55:8-11
    8For My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways My ways, says the Lord.
    9For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways and My thoughts than your thoughts.
    10For as the rain and snow come down from the heavens, and return not there again, but water the earth and make it bring forth and sprout, that it may give seed to the sower and bread to the eater,
    11So shall My word be that goes forth out of My mouth: it shall not return to Me void [without producing any effect, useless], but it shall accomplish that which I please and purpose, and it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.
 
Isaiah 58:8-11
    8Then shall your light break forth like the morning, and your healing (your restoration and the power of a new life) shall spring forth speedily; your righteousness (your rightness, your justice, and your right relationship with God) shall go before you [conducting you to peace and prosperity], and the glory of the Lord shall be your rear guard.
    9Then you shall call, and the Lord will answer; you shall cry, and He will say, Here I AM. If you take away from your midst yokes of oppression [wherever you find them], the finger pointed in scorn [toward the oppressed or the godly], and every form of false, harsh, unjust, and wicked speaking,
    10And if you pour out that with which you sustain your own life for the hungry and satisfy the need of the afflicted, then shall your light rise in darkness, and your obscurity and gloom become like the noonday.
    11And the Lord shall guide you continually and satisfy you in drought and in dry places and make strong your bones. And you shall be like a watered garden and like a spring of water whose waters fail not.
 
Ezekiel 16:9-14
    9Then I washed you with water; yes, I thoroughly washed away your [clinging] blood from you and I anointed you with oil.
    10I clothed you also with embroidered cloth and shod you with [fine seal] leather; and I girded you about with fine linen and covered you with silk.
    11I decked you also with ornaments and I put bracelets on your wrists and a chain on your neck.
    12And I put a ring on your nostril and earrings in your ears and a beautiful crown upon your head!
    13Thus you were decked with gold and silver, and your raiment was of fine linen and silk and embroidered cloth; you ate fine flour and honey and oil. And you were exceedingly beautiful and you prospered into royal estate.
    14And your renown went forth among the nations for your beauty, for it was perfect through My majesty and splendor which I had put upon you, says the Lord God.
 
Ezekiel 36:24-28
    24For I will take you from among the nations and gather you out of all countries and bring you into your own land.
    25Then will I sprinkle clean water upon you, and you shall be clean from all your uncleanness; and from all your idols will I cleanse you.
    26A new heart will I give you and a new spirit will I put within you, and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh and give you a heart of flesh.
    27And I will put my Spirit within you and cause you to walk in My statutes, and you shall heed My ordinances and do them.
    28And you shall dwell in the land that I gave to your fathers; and you shall be My people, and I will be your God.
 
Ezekiel 36:33-36
    33Thus says the Lord God: In the day that I cleanse you from all your iniquities I will [also] cause cities to be inhabited, and the waste places shall be rebuilt.
    34And the desolate land shall be tilled, that which had lain desolate in the sight of all who passed by.
    35And they shall say, This land that was desolate has become like the garden of Eden, and the waste and desolate and ruined cities are fortified and inhabited.
    36Then the nations that are left round about you shall know that I the Lord have rebuilt the ruined places and replanted that which was desolate. I the Lord have spoken it, and I will do it.
 
Amos 5:8
    8Seek Him Who made the [cluster of stars called] Pleiades and [the constellation] Orion, Who turns the shadow of death or deep darkness into the morning and darkens the day into night, Who calls for the waters of the sea and pours them out upon the face of the earth--the Lord is His Name.
 
Amos 5:24
    24But let justice run down like waters and righteousness as a mighty and ever-flowing stream.
 
Habakkuk 2:14
    14But [the time is coming when] the earth shall be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord as the waters cover the sea.
 
Zechariah 9:11-12
    11As for you also, because of and for the sake of the [covenant of the Lord with His people, which was sealed with Jesus’ sprinkled] covenant blood, I have released and sent forth your imprisoned people out of the waterless pit.
    12Return to the stronghold [of security and prosperity], you prisoners of hope; even today do I declare that I will restore double your former prosperity to you.
 
Revelation 21:5-7
    5And He Who is seated on the throne said, See! I make all things new. Also He said, Record this, for these sayings are faithful (accurate, incorruptible, and trustworthy) and true (genuine).
    6And He [further] said to me, It is done! I AM the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. To the thirsty I [Myself] will give water without price from the fountain (springs) of the water of Life.
    7He who is victorious shall inherit all these things, and I will be God to him and he shall be My son.
 

Jesus, Who perfectly represents the Heart of God your Father, continues:
 
John 7:37-39
    37Now on the final and most important day of the Feast, Jesus stood, and He cried in a loud voice, If any man is thirsty, let him come to Me and drink!
    38He who believes in Me [who cleaves to and trusts in and relies on Me] as the Scripture has said, From his innermost being shall flow [continuously] springs and rivers of living water.
    39But He was speaking here of the Spirit, Whom those who believed (trusted, had faith) in Him were afterward to receive. For the [Holy] Spirit had not yet been given, because Jesus was not yet glorified (raised to honor).
 
Matthew 10:40-42
    40He who receives and welcomes and accepts you receives and welcomes and accepts Me, and he who receives and welcomes and accepts Me receives and welcomes and accepts Him Who sent Me.
    41He who receives and welcomes and accepts a prophet because he is a prophet shall receive a prophet's reward, and he who receives and welcomes and accepts a righteous man because he is a righteous man shall receive a righteous man's reward.
    42And whoever gives to one of these little ones [in rank or influence] even a cup of cold water because he is My disciple, surely I declare to you, he shall not lose his reward.
 
Matthew 14:22-33
    22Then He directed the disciples to get into the boat and go before Him to the other side, while He sent away the crowds.
    23And after He had dismissed the multitudes, He went up into the hills by Himself to pray. When it was evening, He was still there alone.
    24But the boat was by this time out on the sea, many furlongs [a furlong is one-eighth of a mile] distant from the land, beaten and tossed by the waves, for the wind was against them.
    25And in the fourth watch [between 3:00--6:00 a.m.] of the night, Jesus came to them, walking on the sea.
    26And when the disciples saw Him walking on the sea, they were terrified and said, It is a ghost! And they screamed out with fright.
    27But instantly He spoke to them, saying, Take courage! I AM! Stop being afraid!
    28And Peter answered Him, Lord, if it is You, command me to come to You on the water.
    29He said, Come! So Peter got out of the boat and walked on the water, and he came toward Jesus.
    30But when he perceived and felt the strong wind, he was frightened, and as he began to sink, he cried out, Lord, save me [from death]!
    31Instantly Jesus reached out His hand and caught and held him, saying to him, O you of little faith, why did you doubt?
    32And when they got into the boat, the wind ceased.
    33And those in the boat knelt and worshiped Him, saying, Truly You are the Son of God!
 
Mark 9:41
    41For I tell you truly, whoever gives you a cup of water to drink because you belong to and bear the Name of Christ will by no means fail to get his reward.
 
Luke 5:1-11
    1Now it occurred that while the people pressed upon Jesus to hear the message of God, He was standing by the Lake of Gennesaret (Sea of Galilee).
    2And He saw two boats drawn up by the lake, but the fishermen had gone down from them and were washing their nets.
    3And getting into one of the boats, [the one] that belonged to Simon (Peter), He requested him to draw away a little from the shore. Then He sat down and continued to teach the crowd [of people] from the boat.
    4When He had stopped speaking, He said to Simon (Peter), Put out into the deep [water], and lower your nets for a haul.
    5And Simon (Peter) answered, Master, we toiled all night [exhaustingly] and caught nothing [in our nets]. But on the ground of Your word, I will lower the nets [again].
    6And when they had done this, they caught a great number of fish; and as their nets were [at the point of] breaking,
    7They signaled to their partners in the other boat to come and take hold with them. And they came and filled both the boats, so that they began to sink.
    8But when Simon Peter saw this, he fell down at Jesus' knees, saying, Depart from me, for I am a sinful man, O Lord.
    9For he was gripped with bewildering amazement [allied to terror], and all who were with him, at the haul of fish which they had made;
    10And so also were James and John, the sons of Zebedee, who were partners with Simon (Peter). And Jesus said to Simon, Have no fear; from now on you will be catching men!
    11And after they had run their boats on shore, they left everything and joined Him as His disciples and sided with His party and accompanied Him.
 
Luke 7:36-50
    36One of the Pharisees asked Jesus to dine with him, and He went into the Pharisee's house and reclined at table.
    37And behold, a woman of the town who was an especially wicked sinner, when she learned that He was reclining at table in the Pharisee's house, brought an alabaster flask of ointment (perfume).
    38And standing behind Him at His feet weeping, she began to wet His feet with [her] tears; and she wiped them with the hair of her head and kissed His feet [affectionately] and anointed them with the ointment (perfume).
    39Now when the Pharisee who had invited Him saw it, he said to himself, If this Man were a prophet, He would surely know who and what sort of woman this is who is touching Him--for she is a notorious sinner (a social outcast, devoted to sin).
    40And Jesus, replying, said to him, Simon, I have something to say to you. And he answered, Teacher, say it.
    41A certain lender of money [at interest] had two debtors: one owed him five hundred denarii, and the other fifty.
    42When they had no means of paying, he freely forgave them both. Now which of them will love him more?
    43Simon answered, The one, I take it, for whom he forgave and cancelled more. And Jesus said to him, You have decided correctly.
    44Then turning toward the woman, He said to Simon, Do you see this woman? When I came into your house, you gave Me no water for My feet, but she has wet My feet with her tears and wiped them with her hair.
    45You gave Me no kiss, but she from the moment I came in has not ceased [intermittently] to kiss My feet tenderly and caressingly.
    46You did not anoint My head with [cheap, ordinary] oil, but she has anointed My feet with [costly, rare] perfume.
    47Therefore I tell you, her sins, many [as they are], are forgiven her--because she has loved much. But he who is forgiven little loves little.
    48And He said to her, Your sins are forgiven!
    49Then those who were at table with Him began to say among themselves, Who is this Who even forgives sins?
    50But Jesus said to the woman, Your faith has saved you; go (enter) into peace [in freedom from all the distresses that are experienced as the result of sin].
 

John 3:2-8
    2 Who came to Jesus at night and said to Him, Rabbi, we know and are certain that You have come from God [as] a Teacher; for no one can do these signs (these wonderworks, these miracles—and produce the proofs) that You do unless God is with him.
    3 Jesus answered him, I assure you, most solemnly I tell you, that unless a person is born again (anew, from above), he cannot ever see (know, be acquainted with, and experience) the kingdom of God.
    4 Nicodemus said to Him, How can a man be born when he is old? Can he enter his mother’s womb again and be born?
    5 Jesus answered, I assure you, most solemnly I tell you, unless a man is born of water and [even] the Spirit, he cannot [ever] enter the kingdom of God.
    6 What is born of [from] the flesh is flesh [of the physical is physical]; and what is born of the Spirit is spirit.
    7 Marvel not [do not be surprised, astonished] at My telling you, You must all be born anew (from above).
    8 The wind blows (breathes) where it wills; and though you hear its sound, yet you neither know where it comes from nor where it is going. So it is with everyone who is born of the Spirit.
 

John 5:2-8
    2Now there is in Jerusalem a pool near the Sheep Gate. This pool in the Hebrew is called Bethesda, having five porches (alcoves, colonnades, doorways).
    3In these lay a great number of sick folk--some blind, some crippled, and some paralyzed (shriveled up)--waiting for the bubbling up of the water.
    4For an angel of the Lord went down at appointed seasons into the pool and moved and stirred up the water; whoever then first, after the stirring up of the water, stepped in was cured of whatever disease with which he was afflicted.
    5There was a certain man there who had suffered with a deep-seated and lingering disorder for thirty-eight years.
    6When Jesus noticed him lying there [helpless], knowing that he had already been a long time in that condition, He said to him, Do you want to become well? [Are you really in earnest about getting well?]
    7The invalid answered, Sir, I have nobody when the water is moving to put me into the pool; but while I am trying to come [into it] myself, somebody else steps down ahead of me.
    8Jesus said to him, Get up! Pick up your bed (sleeping pad) and walk!
 
John 13:1-17
    1[Now] Before the Passover Feast began, Jesus knew (was fully aware) that the time had come for Him to leave this world and return to the Father. And as He had loved those who were His own in the world, He loved them to the last and to the highest degree.
    2So [it was] during supper, Satan having already put the thought of betraying Jesus in the heart of Judas Iscariot, Simon's son,
    3[That] Jesus, knowing (fully aware) that the Father had put everything into His hands, and that He had come from God and was [now] returning to God,
    4Got up from supper, took off His garments, and taking a [servant's] towel, He fastened it around His waist.
    5Then He poured water into the washbasin and began to wash the disciples' feet and to wipe them with the [servant's] towel with which He was girded.
    6When He came to Simon Peter, [Peter] said to Him, Lord, are my feet to be washed by You? [Is it for You to wash my feet?]
    7Jesus said to him, You do not understand now what I AM doing, but you will understand later on.
    8Peter said to Him, You shall never wash my feet! Jesus answered him, Unless I wash you, you have no part with (in) Me [you have no share in companionship with Me].
    9Simon Peter said to Him, Lord, [wash] not only my feet, but my hands and my head too!
    10Jesus said to him, Anyone who has bathed needs only to wash his feet, but is clean all over. And you [My disciples] are clean, but not all of you.
    11For He knew who was going to betray Him; that was the reason He said, Not all of you are clean.
    12So when He had finished washing their feet and had put on His garments and had sat down again, He said to them, Do you understand what I have done to you?
    13You call Me the Teacher (Master) and the Lord, and you are right in doing so, for that is what I AM.
    14If I then, your Lord and Teacher (Master), have washed your feet, you ought [it is your duty, you are under obligation, you owe it] to wash one another's feet.
    15For I have given you this as an example, so that you should do [in your turn] what I have done to you.
    16I assure you, most solemnly I tell you, A servant is not greater than his master, and no one who is sent is superior to the one who sent him.
    17If you know these things, blessed and happy and to be envied are you if you practice them [if you act accordingly and really do them].
 
Revelation 21:1-7
    1Then I saw a new sky (heaven) and a new earth, for the former sky and the former earth had passed away (vanished), and there no longer existed any sea.
    2And I saw the holy city, the new Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God, all arrayed like a bride beautified and adorned for her husband;
    3Then I heard a mighty voice from the throne and I perceived its distinct words, saying, See! The abode of God is with men, and He will live (encamp, tent) among them; and they shall be His people, and God shall personally be with them and be their God.
    4God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; and death shall be no more, neither shall there be anguish (sorrow and mourning) nor grief nor pain any more, for the old conditions and the former order of things have passed away.
    5And He Who is seated on the throne said, See! I make all things new. Also He said, Record this, for these sayings are faithful (accurate, incorruptible, and trustworthy) and true (genuine).
    6And He [further] said to me, It is done! I AM the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. To the thirsty I [Myself] will give water without price from the fountain (springs) of the water of Life.
    7He who is victorious shall inherit all these things, and I will be God to him and he shall be My son.
 

The psalmists had this to say about His living water:
 
Psalm 1:1-6
    1Blessed (happy, fortunate, prosperous, and enviable) is the man who walks and lives not in the counsel of the ungodly [following their advice, their plans and purposes], nor stands [submissive and inactive] in the path where sinners walk, nor sits down [to relax and rest] where the scornful [and the mockers] gather.
    2But his delight and desire are in the law of the Lord, and on His law (the precepts, the instructions, the teachings of God) he habitually meditates (ponders and studies) by day and by night.
    3And he shall be like a tree firmly planted [and tended] by the streams of water, ready to bring forth its fruit in its season; its leaf also shall not fade or wither; and everything he does shall prosper [and come to maturity].
    4Not so the wicked [those disobedient and living without God are not so]. But they are like the chaff [worthless, dead, without substance] which the wind drives away.
    5Therefore the wicked [those disobedient and living without God] shall not stand [justified] in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous [those who are upright and in right standing with God].
    6For the Lord knows and is fully acquainted with the way of the righteous, but the way of the ungodly [those living outside God's will] shall perish (end in ruin and come to nothing).
