John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

John 4:14

Will never thirst — Will never (provided he continue to drink thereof) be miserable, dissatisfied, without refreshment. If ever that thirst returns, it will be the fault of the man, not the water. But the water that I shall give him — The spirit of faith working by love, shall become in him — An inward living principle, a fountain — Not barely a well, which is soon exhausted, springing up into everlasting life — Which is a confluence, or rather an ocean of streams arising from this fountain.
