The woman said to him, Sir, you have nothing to draw with, and the well is deep: from where then have you that living water?…
I tell you the living spring cannot be stayed in its action. If you have a cistern-full of water it will be quiet enough, but if it be a spring it is for ever seething, bubbling, gushing.
(C. H. Spurgeon.)
