Reflections… a Scripture verse and inspiration for daily living [3/5]

Passage: John 7:37-53
Verse: John 7:37 (NIV 2011)
On the last and greatest day of the festival, Jesus stood and said in a loud voice, “Let anyone who is thirsty come to me and drink.”

I expect we each know what it feels like to be thirsty – to be really thirsty and to really want a drink of water.  It can be experienced as an inner feeling of need that consumes our thoughts and dictates our actions – a need that must be quenched.  While I have been talking about physical thirst, a spiritual thirst might be experienced in a similar way – as an inner feeling that needs to be satisfied.  Just as we can experience the intense thirst, both physically or spiritually, we can also experience true fulfillment when we quench our physical thirst with a cold glass of water… or our spiritual thirst with a special encounter with God as we focus or meditate upon the Word of God found in Christ, through the Scriptures, or as we are guided by the Holy Spirit.  May we be truly satisfied from above.  May we thirst for a fresh encounter with God.  May our belief in the one who provides be strengthened as our thirst is quenched!  (inspired by Reflecting God – Devotions for Holy Living, WordAction Publishing Company)
