Jesus, the water of life.
Just as a baby is immersed and nourished in water in a mothers womb, so are Christians, born of water, in their nourished growth, belief and baptism in Jesus Christ. As Jesus said, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit (Gods), he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.

For with thee [is] the fountain of life: in thy light shall we see light. 10. O continue thy lovingkindness unto them that know thee; and thy righteousness to the upright in heart.

And there are three that bear witness in earth, the Spirit, and the water, and the blood: and these three agree in one.
