In 2015, the Lord is calling us to thirst for Him and then actively search for Him.
Have you ever been so thirsty and then taken a big sip of fresh, ice cold water?
Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh! Yes! Can you picture the image in your mind?
That feeling of wanting to so desperately quench that intense need for water…and then you take that drink?
The feeling of immense relief as the cold water passes down your throat and even feels like it runs throughout your entire body for an instant.
With that imagery in your mind, and your physical senses awakened, ask yourself
Have you ever been so thirsty for Jesus like that?
Have you ever felt that I just NEED a sip of Jesus to quench my spiritual thirst?
This Sunday, January 4th, we will be meeting to share from John 4:1-42
Jesus meets a Samaritan woman at the well and He asks her for a drink of water.
A woman of Samaria came to draw water. Jesus said to her, “Give Me a drink.” For His disciples had gone away into the city to buy food. Then the woman of Samaria said to Him, “How is it that You, being a Jew, ask a drink from me, a Samaritan woman?” For Jews have no dealings with Samaritans. Jesus answered and said to her, “If you knew the gift of God, and who it is who says to you, ‘Give Me a drink,’ you would have asked Him, and He would have given you living water.” The woman said to Him, “Sir, You have nothing to draw with, and the well is deep. Where then do You get that living water? Are You greater than our father Jacob, who gave us the well, and drank from it himself, as well as his sons and his livestock?” Jesus answered and said to her, “Whoever drinks of this water will thirst again, but whoever drinks of the water that I shall give him will never thirst. But the water that I shall give him will become in him a fountain of water springing up into everlasting life.” The woman said to Him, “Sir, give me this water, that I may not thirst, nor come here to draw.”
Until we gather to study, may the Lord Jesus Christ, The giver of life and refreshment to all, place on the inside of you an insatiable thirst for Him!
To God for His Glory displayed in our lives,
