LOVE NEVER RUNS DRY
Søren Kierkegaard (1813-1855) wrote, “This is all I have known for certain, that God is love. Even if I have been mistaken about this or that point, God is nevertheless love. If I have made a mistake it will be plain enough, so I repent… and God is love. He is love… not he was love, nor he will be love, oh no, even that future is too slow for me… he is love.
Oh, how wonderful! Sometimes, perhaps, my repentance does not come at once, and so there is a future. But God keeps no person waiting, for he is love. Like spring-water that keeps the same temperature summer and winter… so is God’s love. His love is a spring that never runs dry.”
“Jesus told the woman at Jacob’s well, “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.” Love is the spring that never runs dry. If anyone thirsts, let him come to me and drink. He who believes in me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.” Jesus
