Living Water Spring (Revelation 21.6b-7)

"To the thirsty I will give water without cost from the spring of the water of life. Those who are victorious will inherit all this, and I will be their God and they will be my children." (Revelation 21.6b-7)✞

Without Cost

WaterThe word for "end" is "telos," and does not simply mean "end in time" but the "goal." John of Patmos was saying here that all life began in God and will end in God. Saint Paul expressed the same truth when he said in Romans 11.36a, "for from him and through him and for him are all things." He also spoke in Ephesians 4.6 of "one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all." It would be impossible to say anything more magnificent about God. At first sight, it might seem to remove God to a great distance saying, "God is the Beginning and the End" but what comes next in Revelation 21.6-7 "To the thirsty I will give a living water spring without price." Living water is abundant and free and refreshing. All God's greatness is at the disposal of human beings. The splendor of God is available to satisfy the thirst of the longing heart.
