DAY 5 OF 5
Solid, Liquid, Gas
The Holy Spirit or the living water is the third person of the Trinity. God is one God in three forms. This is a hard concept to get our minds around.

He defeated death and ascended into heaven, and now sits at the right hand of God the Father. After Jesus was glorified in heaven, He sent His Spirit to earth.
The Spirit of Jesus is not just with us, but in us. This is what Jesus was referring to when He told the Samaritan woman about the living water.

Just like the Samaritan woman got the special privilege of meeting with the source from which the living water flows, we can also meet with Jesus through His Word and invite His Spirit to live in us.
