Reference: John 4:14
When the greatest evangelist of the nineteenth century, D.L. Moody, was asked why he said he needed to be filled continually with the Holy Spirit, he replied, “Because I leak!”
God designed us to need Him in the same way that we need water. But we all leak. We get thirsty often for His Presence in our lives over and over again and this will be true forever. Our thirst for the Holy Spirit in our lives will never go away. The good news is that the Holy Spirit will never stop supplying the water. We can drink as much as we want whenever we need to drink. This teaching compares our natural need for water to our spiritual need for the Holy Spirit on a continual basis.
