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 NKJV)
As I sit and listen to the rain trickle down, I am assured the earth will drink it all up because it thirsts. Often, we are painfully thirsty. We seek coffee in the morning to keep our sleepy eyes awake. In the evening others desire a toddy, a pain killer to take away the sufferings of the day.
Jesus stood up and yelled in the middle of the big party, “Come to me if you are thirsty! Come to me and drink!” No Grande caramel macchiato nor jumbo margarita can fill the emptiness caused by the pains of life. Jesus is the only true thirst quencher. He is the only pain reliever we need. Freely, come to Him. He will heal every hurt. He will quench every thirst. Do you hear him yelling for you? The Living Water is waiting on you.
I enCOURAGE you to let him pour you the best drink ever, Himself.
“For My flesh is food indeed, and My blood is drink indeed. (56) “He who eats My flesh and drinks My blood abides in Me, and I in him. (John 6:55-56 NKJV)
Then He took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave [it] to them, saying, “Drink from it, all of you. (Matthew 26:27 NKJV)
