Today's Reading: John 7:37 - 39
Jesus told the Jews on the last day of the Feast of Tabernacles, "'If anyone is thirsty, let him come to me and drink. Whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said, streams of living water will flow from within him.' By this he meant the Spirit, whom those who believed in him were later to receive. Up to that time the Spirit had not been given, since Jesus had not yet been glorified."
Jesus satisfies us. In this passage, He invites all who are "thirsty" to come to Him, and He will indeed give us the Holy Spirit to lead and guide, and pour forth great joy and life, in and through our lives. Are we thirsty? Humans inherently feel that there is something more to life than just living and dying, or gaining reputation and amassing great wealth. There is a deep hunger and thirst for some spiritual meaning in our lives, and filling up that void, we would never be satisfied. But Jesus here gives us the answer. Come to Him, drink of Him, believe in Him, and He will satisfy us through the power of the Holy Spirit in our lives. Come Lord Jesus come!
