On the last day of the festival, the great day, while Jesus was standing there, he cried out, “Let anyone who is thirsty come to me, and let the one who believes in me drink. As the Scripture has said, ‘Out of the believer’s heart shall flow rivers of living water.'”
Now he said this about the Spirit, which believers in him were to receive; for as yet the Spirit had not been given, because Jesus was not yet glorified.
The person who believes in Jesus as Lord of all will drink of the Spirit which derives from Jesus, and this shall be the source of their energy and life.
That is really all we want to say today. That Jesus Christ, the risen person who is alive today, and reigns with the Father and the Holy Spirit is the source of life from which we who believe drink and are filled. Going anywhere else but Him alone for life will leave you thirsty to varying degrees.
Jesus is not some dead guy of the past. He was not merely a great teacher or good moral example to follow.
He is the source for all life and your soul will not find rest until it rests in Him.
He said, “Come to ME.” Come directly to Me. If you are not feasting upon the risen Christ for your energy, then you are living beneath what you were lovingly created for!
How do we drink from the Well that is Jesus?
Perhaps we can talk about that tomorrow.
Just know today and meditate upon the fact that Jesus Himself is your source of life. You need go to no other person, no book, no church to receive life. You need must go to the Life Giver Himself who is always open-armed waiting for you to come to Him. After that, AFTER, He then may direct you to people or books or a church. Maybe. I don’t know. You’ll have to ask Him.
Check out Isaiah 65:1-2 sometime today.
