Meditation

Read John 4:7-15

It is the God who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” who has shone in our hearts to give the light of knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.

—2 Corinthians 4:6 (NRSV)

During my college days I was zealous in my studies and my attempts to find work. Yet my spirit felt hungry and dry. While believing that being employed by a first-rate company would bring me happiness, I also had other questions: What is the purpose of my existence? What meaning is there in my giving myself to this work? Life is limited to one time; therefore, I wanted to devote my life to something with real value.

I knew there should be something more important for me to learn, and I have always sought that true teaching. Then I encountered the words of Jesus in the Bible. Jesus offered me water that satisfies my spiritual thirst and became “a spring of water gushing up to eternal life.” Before, I had seen God as distant from me. Now, I have a very close relationship, like a father and daughter.

Now that nagging uneasiness is gone. My heart is content. I worship “in spirit and truth” (John) 4:23), and I am enveloped in God’s love. I give heartfelt thanks to God who shines in my heart and displaces the darkness of the world with the light of Christ.

PRAYER—O God, thank you for salvation. Deliver us from spiritual hunger and thirst as we worship you in spirit and truth. Amen.

Thought for the Day—Only God can satisfy our spiritual thirst and give us eternal life.

Sachie Yoshimoto (Tokyo, Japan)
