《Today’s spiritual meditation》: “Jesus stood and said in a loud voice, ‘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.’” (Joh 7:37-38)
Meditation one: What is the difference between the water given by Jesus and the water we normally drink? We drink water but will feel thirsty again. Regardless how much money, entertainment, knowledge, or fame, it cannot settle people’s empty souls. Only the living water flows from within can quench the thirst of life. The key is that you just come to the Lord right now, humbly accept Jesus as your savior, and let the Lord be the Master of your life.
Meditation two: Why do some Christians still feel thirsty or drained spiritually? Even if they try hard to share God’s love with others, there is no “living water” flowing from within them! Since they may have not been drinking the living water often or adequately, or they may not have fully believed in Jesus or they may have even walked away from the Lord who is the source of living water. May the Holy Spirit always shine on you, fill and reside in you, and manage, guide, to renew your life.
Prayer: God our heavenly Father, thank You for giving me the fountain of life – rivers of living water, so that I am drenched with the abundance of Your grace. May You use me; let me not be the one to hold back the grace of Yours, but the conduit for others to receive Your blessings; please make me a blessing. I pray in the Holy Name of Jesus Christ. Amen!
