Which Water Am I?

Human beings fill the earth with what comes from within them.

In Noah’s time this was true.

And God said to Noah,
“The end of all flesh has come before Me, for the earth is filled
with violence through them; and behold,
I will destroy them with the earth.” Genesis 6:13
In Jesus’ time this was true.

On the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried out, saying, “If anyone thirsts, let him come to Me and drink. He who believes in Me,
as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.”
John 7:37-38
In our time this is true.
“You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you, that you may be sons of your Father in heaven; for He makes His sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust. For if you love those who love you, what reward have you? Do not even the tax collectors do the same?  And if you greet your brethren only, what do you do more than others? Do not even the tax collectors do so?  Therefore you shall be perfect, just as your Father in heaven is perfect.”  Matthew 5:43-48

Water is present in the story of Noah and Jesus.  In Noah’s time the water came to destroy.  In Jesus’ time  the water came to give life.  In my time which water am I?
