Excitement was in the air as the New Hope community in Liberia anticipated their first drink of fresh well water! Pastor Akin preached heartily to the group who had gathered for the dedication. “The water is free. It is easily obtainable . . . but if you refuse to drink this spiritual water, you will die,” he said, likening spiritual water to the well water they were eager to receive.
When the padlock was unlatched and someone began pumping the well, faces beamed with excitement and everyone clapped as crystal clear water came to the surface. Adults and eager children scrambled forward to receive their first taste of this cold, clear water!
“I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely.” Revelation 21:6
