Ponce de Leon was a Spanish explorer who accompanied Christopher Columbus on his second voyage to America. Later he conquered Puerto Rico for Spain and was its governor from 1510-1512. He became the European discoverer of Florida while trying to find the infamous “Fountain of Youth,” a spring whose waters supposedly had the power to restore youthful vigor.
Ponce de Leon never did discover the fountain that he hoped would reverse the aging process. However, God’s Word tells us of a far more wonderful fountain than anything the explorer could have ever dreamed of finding.
Isaiah writes, “Ho, every one that thirsteth, come ye to the waters, and he that hath no money; come ye, buy, and eat; yea, come, buy wine and milk without money and without price” (Isaiah 55:1).
The Lord said to the woman at the well, “Whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst” (John 4:14).
Have you availed yourself of the “water of life” (Revelation 21:6)?
