rivers of living water

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. Whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said, 'Out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.'" John 7:37-38 (ESV).

This Easter I am reflecting on the wonderful life-giving properties of water. And not just the stuff that comes out of your kitchen tap. No, I am reflecting on the water that quenches my spiritual thirst; the water that gives eternal life. I am reflecting on the life-giving water that is a personal relationship with the One who died on a Cross; and His name is Jesus Christ. To come to Jesus means to believe in Him and follow after Him. To come to Jesus and drink means to receive from Him what He has to give; and what He has to give us are rivers of living water.

This Easter who doesn't need rivers of life-giving water to gush into their life? I know that I need His living water to flood my life. I am in need of Jesus; for in His Presence there is love, there is rest, and there is fullness of joy. 

This Easter I choose to come to Jesus for He is the One who fills me to overflowing. What He has to give me is always more than enough. And this Easter I recognise that who I am in Him is more than enough.

Readers, I implore you this Easter to come and drink from the One who came to sustain your life with His rivers of living water. Come to Him and quench your thirst, come to Him who loves you, who is for you, and who died for you. Yes, come and drink.
