Quench your thirst and drink from the spring of living water. Hydrate on the Word of God.”
~ LISA BLAIR
Our bodies thirsts for water to stay alive, likewise our souls thirst for God who gives us life. Those of us that live in developed lands find no need to search for drinking water to stay hydrated. Many who live in underdeveloped lands do not have this luxury. Water is scarce and many die from dehydration.
When can meet God? You can meet Him any time, at any point in our lives, even the moment before our death. Seek Him and He will meet you where you are at the moment of you cry out for Him. Many people die from not knowing the Lord, they do not drink from His living waters. Romans 10:9 instructs us to:
“Openly declare that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, and you will be saved.” Romans 10:9 NLT
When you receive Jesus as your Lord and Savior, you are then filled with His living waters.
“But whoever drinks of the water that I will give him will never be thirsty again. The water that I will give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life.” John 4:4, ESV
Jesus is our Redeemer, His invitation is always open.
On the last day, the climax of the festival, Jesus stood and shouted to the crowds, “Anyone who is thirsty may come to me! Anyone who believes in me may come and drink! For the Scriptures declare, ‘Rivers of living water will flow from his heart.’”(When he said “living water,” he was speaking of the Spirit, who would be given to everyone believing in him. But the Spirit had not yet been given, because Jesus had not yet entered into his glory.) John 7:37-39 NLT
It is done I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end I will give to the one who thirsts from the spring of the water of life without cost.” Revelations 21:6 NIV
As Christians, we know the feeling of comfort the spring of living water provides. If each one of us shares this information with at least one person in our sphere of influence who does not follow Christ, they too can be filled and meet God where they stand, hydrated from the spring of (eternal) living water. They will know Him and become recipients of eternal salvation and reside in heaven with our Lord and Savior.
