Day 14 meditation sets forth the fountain of youth as the power of the grace of God.
Throughout the pages of history, man’s thirst for the eternal fountain of youth has driven him to the limits of his existence. In his quest for eternal life man has explored every aspect of the universe from the vanishing frontiers of earth and space to the unknown regions of the mind. Thirsting for springs of living waters mankind has often become intoxicated with illusions of youth only to find a vanishing mirage.
Day 14 meditations declares that there is one who has solved the quest for eternal youth.
As elusive as man’s quest for the fountain of youth may seem to be, there is one, however, who proclaimed to have solved the mystery of eternal youth. Jesus Christ said,
But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life” (John 4:14).
Again, Jesus stated, “. . . I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly” (John 10:10). The Apostle Paul, commenting on this life through Jesus Christ, wrote:
What fruit had ye then in those things whereof ye are now ashamed? for the end of those things is death. But now being made free from sin, and become servants to God, ye have your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life. For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. (Rom. 6:21-23)
Jesus Christ is the source of abundant life, the source of the eternal heavenly realm. He is the Fountain of Youth! Day 14 meditation declares the intricacies of the fountain that is everlasting.
