Living Water (Video Jam)

This video jam titled "Living Water" comes from a sermon preached by Dr. Vincent G. Artese titled "Seek the Lord While He Can Be Found".

When Jesus spoke to the woman at the well about Living Water He was speaking about the Holy Spirit. Jesus Christ came to regenerate fallen man and restore us to a pre-fallen state. When God first created Adam and Eve He breathed into them His Spirit and they were filled with love. This ended when Adam and Eve fled from God and exalted self in personal independence, they thought they could find greater love somewhere else. Then they began to thirst, they realized they could find no happiness in this world, and they were both cursed, separated from the gift of God's love. One can only be restored through the Living Water spoken of by Christ. Humanity continually tries to replace what was lost when our first parents were separated from God. But nothing can satisfy, perfect love is the answers. God fills those who are His with the Spirit and love, no one can find it anywhere else. The Samaritan woman desired intimacy and love. She found what she was looking for, not in this world, but when she became intimate with God. The relationship of the Christian to God must be based on divine love, but this takes an abandonment of our past as the woman at the well was willing to do. The reason mankind experiences torment and fear is because of a lack of love for perfect love for God. It takes place when one tries to replace love of God with other things
