Living Water

John 7 On the last and greatest day of the festival, Jesus stood and said in a loud voice, “Let anyone who is thirsty come to me and drink.  Whoever believes in me, as Scripture has said, rivers of living water will flow from within them. John 7:37-38

Revelation 7:17 For the Lamb at the center of the throne will be their shepherd; ‘he will lead them to springs of living water.’ ‘And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.'”

Water is the most important sustenance that we need, we can do without food for a good time, but we will quickly die without water. To a person in the desert, the gift of water is the most precious gift you can give. Christ offers us an even more precious gift, He offers Himself, living water, eternal life. How wonderful to be able to partake of this gift!

His sacrifice opened the wells that God will use to feed the children that He has accepted! Not only are we also to partake of living water, but we become vessels in order to share with others.

  1. Drink from the fountain of the Lord
    to sate your thirst
    and let the Living Waters
    from inside His fountain burst,
    through to quench your arid soul
    drink from it and be forever nursed.
