“37 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. 38 Whoever believes in me, as Scripture has said, rivers of living water will flow from within them.” – John 7:37-38 (NIV)
Jesus never forces Himself on anyone, he gives an invitation and belief is optional. The living water that Jesus provides refreshes and revives life. Our faith, actions and attitudes are the demonstration of Jesus’ living water flowing through us. As children of the most high God, the people around us should want to drink from the well of Jesus because our lives are a witness of His faithfulness.
Take a moment to evaluate yourself. Are you walking through life unhappy, miserable, defeated and unmotivated? If your answer is yes, you’re thirsty my friend, ask the Lord to pour out his living water into your soul so that you can be renewed. If your soul is full then ask the Lord for a fresh anointing of living water.
Lord, thank you for extending the invitation to us to receive your living water. Help us to share this refreshment with everyone and guide them to you so that their lives will be restored and they will live with rivers of living water flowing through them. In Jesus name we pray, Amen.
