What did Jesus mean by this statement? Every living thing on this planet needs water to survive. We cannot live without it. Jesus explains that the living water he is speaking of is “a spring of water welling up to eternal life”. When we decide to follow Jesus, that is submit to him and endeavour to obey his teachings to love God before all and love our neighbours as ourselves, Jesus states that he will come and live within us. This happens when Jesus’ Spirit, the Holy Spirit, enters our bodies to commune with our spirits. In other words we have part of God within us. The Bible says that when this happens the Holy Spirit reminds us that we are God’s children. The Holy Spirit dwelling within us enables us to come to God as God’s children and to dwell forever with God.
