Jesus came so that we can all have LIFE in abundance. He gives Living Water to those who come to Him. We read in John 4:13 Jesus said to the woman at the well: “whoever drinks of the water that I will give him shall never thirst; but the water that I will give him will become in him a well of water springing up to eternal life.” Jesus was speaking of the Holy Spirit, that was given on the day of Pentecost.
The Apostle Peter explained this is what was spoken of through the prophet Joel:
IT SHALL BE IN THE LAST DAYS,’ God says,
‘THAT I WILL POUR FORTH OF MY SPIRIT ON ALL MANKIND;
AND YOUR SONS AND YOUR DAUGHTERS SHALL PROPHESY,
AND YOUR YOUNG MEN SHALL SEE VISIONS,
AND YOUR OLD MEN SHALL DREAM DREAMS;
ON MY BONDSLAVES, BOTH MEN AND WOMEN,
I WILL IN THOSE DAYS POUR FORTH OF MY SPIRIT
And they shall prophesy.
19‘AND I WILL
GRANT WONDERS IN THE SKY ABOVE
AND SIGNS ON THE EARTH BELOW,
BLOOD, AND FIRE, AND VAPOR OF SMOKE.
SUN WILL BE TURNED INTO DARKNESS
AND THE MOON INTO BLOOD,
BEFORE THE GREAT AND GLORIOUS DAY OF THE LORD SHALL COME.
21‘AND IT SHALL BE THAT EVERYONE WHO CALLS ON THE NAME OF THE LORD WILL BE SAVED.’ Acts 2:17-21.
Jesus is inviting everybody to come and drink of the Living Water, not only to drink once but it becomes in him a well of water springing up to eternal life. Jesus never changed and His Holy Spirit never changes. It is not just a once off experience. It grows and flows in and through those who keep on drinking, keeping yearning for Jesus and keep on seeking Him, walking with Him, following Him, praising Him.
How do you receive that Living Water? The very same as those on the day of Pentecost. They asked Peter what they should do to receive it, and he replied: ““Repent, and each of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins; and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. 39“For the promise is for you and your children and for all who are far off, as many as the Lord our God will call to Himself.” Acts 2:38,39.
Are you thirsty and dry? Do you yearn for the Living Water? Then do as Peter instructed, repent and be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins; and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.
Come and drink of this water!
May Jesus bless you.
