Some say that water has no taste, some say every type of water tastes different and some say that water just does not taste good at all. We believe that water has a taste, and that for each moment of our lives, it hits us differently.

For example, after a long, hot, drawn out practice in the Bulldog Stadium, water tastes like the clean, cool, crisp liquid that God Himself has poured out from heaven.

When you wake up at three in the morning with a dying thirst in your mouth, water tastes like the refreshing droplets that fall from spring fed waterfalls in a hidden world.

While swimming in the community pool in the summer, your friends pull you under and you get a mouthful of water that tastes like a salty chemical mixture that some mad scientist made, and there is a hint of something else, something strange, but you try to ignore that.

In the winter when you get hit in the face with a perfectly round snowball, or you roll down a hill you were trying to sled, the water tastes fresh with just a hint of dirt to give it some flavor.

Finally there is the water of the Word. According to John 4:14, “but whoever drinks of the water that I will give him shall never thirst; but the water that I will give him will become in him a well of water springing up to eternal life.” This water hits differently, it tastes pure and fresh. This water will never go stale or get stagnant. After drinking this water, you will never be thirsty again.
