Old Well“There was a well near here,” said a bystander, “and very, good water used to come from it; but it has been filled up for a long time.” “Indeed, I never knew there was a well here, much less tasted the water. How did it get filled up?” “Neglect, sir. Some rubbish got in, then part of the surrounding soil; and as it was not cleared out at once, it got worse and worse, till it is as you see it, quite choked up. I wonder if there is any water at the bottom?” “These last words set me thinking. “I wonder if there is any water at the bottom?” I thought how much this old well was like some Christians. The Lord Jesus spoke of the life He gives to the believer as “a well of water” unto him (John 4: 14); but are there not many who are supposed to be Christians in whom we do not see any water, and of whom we can say, as of this old well: “I wonder if there is any water at the bottom?”
