Come To the Living Water

On the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried out, saying, "If anyone thirsts, let him come to Me and drink. (John 7:37)

  • Water is vital to maintaining our well-being.
  • Jesus’ invitation: “If anyone thirsts, let him come to Me and drink”.
  • His announcement was dramatic, in terms of the timing.
  • It was the last day of the great feast, the annual festival commemorating the wandering of the Jews in the wilderness, which climaxed with a ceremonial pouring of water down the temple steps to recall God’s provision of water for the thirsty wanderers.
  • It was at that point that Jesus rose and proclaimed that He is the water we all desperately need.
  • Living like we really need Jesus, talking to Him and depending on His wisdom, is vital to our spiritual well-being.
  • Let us stay connected to Jesus, for He alone can satisfy our thirsty soul!
  • Dear Lord, forgive us for thinking that we can do life without the water of Your presence, advice, counsel, comfort, and conviction. Thank You that You are indeed the living water that we so desperately need.
  •  Let us come to Jesus for the refreshing power of His living water.
