Thirst-Quencher (Jeremiah 2:13)

Many people throughout the world are turning to Jesus Christ for salvation. Others, though, are rejecting Him and looking elsewhere for spiritual peace and fulfillment.

While doing some research, I read an issue of the New Age Journal. I noticed that the writers endorse a variety of pantheistic religions. They state their belief in reincarnation, encourage mystical psychic activities, and even strongly recommend the worship of pagan goddesses. Some articles mention the Bible and Jesus, but not one writer views the Scriptures as God’s Word or Jesus as the only Savior.

Many Israelites of Jeremiah’s day had turned away from the only living and true God to religious beliefs similar to those being advocated by New Age writers today. Jeremiah likened them to people who turned a fresh-flowing spring to broken cisterns that could hold no water (Jeremiah 2:13).

The gods of New Age theology are worthless. They can’t satisfy the thirst of our souls to know the one true God. They can’t forgive our sins or assure us of heaven. Only Jesus can do that. – Herb Vander Lugt

If we turn from God who made us,

He who loves us as His own,

We will go on longing, thirsting –

We were made for Him alone. – D. J. De Haan

Only Jesus, the Living Water, can satisfy our thirst for God.
