“Now on the last day, the great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried out, saying, “If anyone is thirsty, let him come to Me and drink.” (John 7:37)
We are mostly water. All of what we need, Jesus offers to provide. He will fill us up so that we are not parched. Many, however, will go elsewhere trying to be filled. Jesus stands in the middle of the crowd and offers us what we need. Will you take Jesus up on His offer and have your soul refreshed?
Lord, I do not think I need anything, so I do not come to You. Yet, here You are, calling out and offering to quench our thirst. Jesus, I am a sheep who is led around. I do not know what I need, often not until it is almost too late. Help me listen to You so that I may be guided in all things, today and every day.
Thank You Jesus for putting Yourself at risk for all who would come to faith through You to the Father. Help me today to live into this faith You have given me by acting upon the things You have given me to do. May others have their souls filled because I have helped to bring You to them. Amen.
