THERE IS A FOUNTAIN! – John 4:13-14 Devotional
“Jesus answered and said to her, “Whoever drinks of this water will thirst again, but whoever drinks of the water that I shall give him will never thirst. But the water that I shall give him will become in him a fountain of water springing up into everlasting life.”
Not only is Olympia, Washington the State Capital, but there is also another significant claim to fame. In the 400 block of 4th Avenue is an artesian well. People are able to fill containers of this pure cool water. It is a fountain flowing freely.
The composer of this week’s hymn is William Cowper. He was born in England in the year 1731. He suffered many personal losses during his early years that caused him much mental anguish. Loss after loss of those that were close brought him to the brink of despair.
Through all of his ordeals the Lord kept drawing him. He finally received Jesus as his personal Savior and began writing hymns and poetry. It is fascinating that he lived in a small house just behind the home of his pastor, John Newton, who wrote the wonderful hymn, Amazing Grace. Thank the Lord for the fountain of redeeming blood that cleanses us from all of our sin.
There is a fountain filled with blood, drawn from Immanuel’s veins
And sinners plunged beneath that flood, lose all their guilty stains
The dying thief rejoiced to see, that fountain in his day;
And there may I, though vile as he, wash all my sins away
Dear dying Lamb, thy precious blood, shall never lose its power
Till all the ransomed church of God, are saved, to sin no more
For since by faith I saw the stream, Thy flowing wounds supply
Redeeming love has been my theme, and shall be till I die
When this poor lisping, stammering tongue, lies silent in the grave
Then in a nobler, sweeter song, I’ll sing thy power to save
