13 For two evils hath My people done, Me they have forsaken, a fountain of living waters, To hew out for themselves wells — wells, That contain not the waters. (Jer 2:13 YLT)
Striving to possess life in anything other than God results in a dual evil. First, in the rejection of the source of life. Second, in the indulging of idolatry. Jesus offers freely living water which springs up to life eternal. Turn from the empty, desiccated vats of idolatry and drink from Him, through whom all things were created and are sustained. He who creates life can surely supply it through Jesus Christ.
