37 On the last day of the feast, the great day, Jesus stood up and cried out, “If anyone thirsts, let him come to me and drink. 38 Whoever believes in me, as[f] the Scripture has said, ‘Out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.’” 39 Now this he said about the Spirit, whom those who believed in him were to receive, for as yet the Spirit had not been given, because Jesus was not yet glorified.
RIVERS OF LIVING WATERS
Has anyone promised anything like this?
The feast has lasted for a number of days, and now here we are on the last day of the feast What does Jesus say? People were thirsty, “Come to me. I am the one who can truly satisfy your thirst.”
Jesus said to the woman at the well that He was the living water she needed. Not only is the person’s thirst satisfied, but He becomes a river of living water flowing out to others.
It was these words that the officers probably heard. No wonder they said, “NO ONE SPEAKS LIKE THIS MAN.”
No one can satisfy a person’s thirst; no one has promised that out of the person would flow rivers of living water.
Has Jesus satisfied your thirst?
If He has, is your life a river of living water flowing out to all? Just like the woman at the well, who went and told everyone what Jesus had done for her.
She was transformed as her thirst was truly satisfied.
Have you had the same life-giving experience as her which Nicodemus, the man in John 9, and millions of others have also had? Jesus says come to me all who are thirsty?
Come and have your thirst satisfied!
God bless you,
