“Is anyone thirsty? Come and drink— even if you have no money! Come, take your choice of wine or milk— it’s all free! Why spend your money on food that does not give you strength? Why pay for food that does you no good? Listen to me, and you will eat what is good. You will enjoy the finest food. Come to me with your ears wide open. Listen, and you will find life. I will make an everlasting covenant with you. I will give you all the unfailing love I promised to David.”
“Jesus answered, ‘If you knew the generosity of God and who I am, you would be asking me for a drink, and I would give you fresh, living water.’”
There is a thirst deep down inside of each of us. Each one of us has had droughts in our life that have left our soul parched and wanting. Our personal defects, upbringings, life situations have failed to satisfy our dehydrated soul. So we look for an oasis. We search for streams in the desert. We look, but fail to find what we thirst for. Why? Because we go everywhere to quench our thirst, instead of the one who can satisfy. The Prophet cried out to Israel, “Is anyone thirsty? Come and drink— even if you have no money! Come, take your choice of wine or milk— it’s all free!” But they refused to come to God for life. God offered them unfailing love but they rejected Him. Jesus, hundreds of years later, spoke to a woman at a well about living water. She came looking to fill her bucket but He offered to fill her soul. Jesus said, “If you knew the generosity of God and who I am, you would be asking me for a drink, and I would give you fresh, living water.” That day she opened her heart and accepted God’s living water. That moment her soul was rejuvenated and she told her whole town of the transforming power of Christ. The town came and drank for themselves, going back home reborn. What about you? Is your soul thirsty? Have you been drinking from other sources only to be left wanting? Come today to Christ. Come to Him and share your needs. Talk to Him, pour out your heart, bare your soul to Him and He will quench your deepest thirst. He is the living water and desires to give you life. Hear God call out to you today, “Come and drink, I will give you fresh living water.”
Father, I thirst. My soul is parched. I need your living water. I come now, mouth wide open ready to drink. Please refresh my soul with Your word. Quench my thirst with Your Holy Spirit. Give me your living water and I will be satisfied. In Jesus Name.
