The Invitation of JesusJesus said, “Let anyone who is thirsty come to me and drink. Whoever believes in me, as Scripture has said, rivers of living water will flow from within them.” ~John 7:37-38
In Jesus we find the source of Living Water. And He extends an invitation to all who thirst. God Himself offers us life through his death and resurrection.
The words of Jesus’ invitation in John 7 echo in our ears. Jesus stands at the doors of our hearts and speaks to the heart of each person on earth, offering the water of eternal life–the life that flows from God.
And what does it mean to “drink” of this water? It means believing Him, aligning ourselves with Him, trusting Him, receiving His teaching and obeying His commands. This faith allows us to enter into a relationship with Jesus. And when we believe we open our hands to receive what His grace offers–we come and drink.Lent 2014
