John 7:37-38 “If anyone is thirsty, let him come to Me and drink. Whoever believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, streams of living water will flow within him.”

Water is necessary for life. Without water, vegetation withers and dies, the parched soil refuses to bear crops, and everything perishes under the scorching sun. And without the living water of the Word in our lives we too become spiritually dry…our lives like an arid desert, void of joy and hope. But it doesn’t have to be that way. Psalm 36:8-9 shows us the abundance of God’s steadfast love, generosity and eternal life when it says, “They feast on the abundance of Your house; You give them drink from Your river of delights. For with You is the fountain of life.” Here in John 7:37-38, Jesus was quoting Isaiah 58:11, linking the idea that with the Word active in our lives we can be like well-watered gardens, and like springs whose waters never fail.
