John 7:37-38 On the last day of the feast, the greatest day, Jesus stood up and shouted out, “If anyone is thirsty, let him come to me, and let the one who believes in me drink. Just as the scripture says, ʻFrom within him will flow rivers of living water.ʼ”

My first two years in college were in a town where they purified their water with sulfur.  The smell was not very present nor was the taste.  I managed to go for several weeks without drinking.  Then, suddenly, I realized I was very thirsty.  I gulped down the water.  We are sometimes that way with drinking of the living water of God’s Holy Spirit.  He is in us but we choose or forget to drink of Him.  When we become very thirsty we sometimes look too the wrong places for our water; we tend to look at the enticements of the world around us thinking these will satisfy our thirst.  When God created us He put in us a thirst to fellowship with Him. Nothing else can fill that place no matter how hard or in how many ways we try to fill it.  Our question is will we choose to drink of Him through prayer, meditation, Bible study, gathering with other believers and sharing His love with others?  All these things help us to drink of His water and as we drink His water lives in us and spills over to others.  Let us drink.
