“The water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life” (John 4:14).
In some old castles are found deep wells meant to supply the garrison in time of siege. An aqueduct bringing water from without would be at the mercy of the enemy, but the foe has no power over the well inside. The peace the world seeks depends on one’s surroundings and in time of trouble its source is cut off, but the peace of Christ is a spring inside.
