Fill my cup

Song: Fill my cup, Lord, I lift it up, Lord! Come and quench this thirsting of my soul! Bread of heaven, fill me till I want no more, fill my cup, fill it up and make me whole!!! In the bible reference above there is the account of the Samarian woman at the well whom Jesus asked for a drink of water. The woman told Jesus that Samarians had no dealings with the Jews and wondered why he was asking her for a drink of water and the following conversation ensued:. John Jesus answered and said unto her, If thou knewest the gift of God, and who it is that saith to thee, Give me to drink; thou wouldest have asked of him, and he would have given thee living water. This woman then asked Jesus where this "living water" would come from since he didn't have anything to draw water from the deep well and Jesus answered her by saying: Whosoever drinketh of this water shall thirst again: But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.

What does the Bible say about? You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; you anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. A Psalm of David. The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He makes me lie down in green pastures. He leads me beside still waters.

His overflowing grace is something we experience as Christians in this life. He does not just give us the gift of eternal life when we first believed, but He keeps on giving eternal life. Jesus gives us Himself John He is this abundant life. His grace is always in fullness, abundance and all-sufficiency. Jesus did not have a rope and a bucket to draw the water from the well so He asked the woman for a drink of water to quench His thirst. Jesus was ready to give this woman, who was a slave to sin, running water.
