Our Messiah promises that those who trust Him will receive in their hearts wells of living water springing up to eternal life. He keeps His promise, of course, but then we have the responsibility of keeping the well clean so that what springs up from our hearts carries life to those around us. That’s one way to understand what God means when He says we are to be holy as He is holy.
