This picture above is a shopping center parking lot in town that has two bars located side by side. Every space is taken as well as people parking on the street. Every occupant that came in those cars are seekers. They are seeking some sort of gratification, completeness, or happiness that they will never find in those bars. They seek fulfillment but alcohol deadens feelings, hurt, and sadness. With alcohol, the problems seem to disappear but are always back the next day. They seek the wrong source of being fulfilled.
Now imagine that all these cars were at a local church. People parking on the grass and streets to get a seat inside. Those people that came in their cars are also seekers. They seek forgiveness and mercy. They found the living water where they no longer thirst. Jesus is the “Living Water” and you will never thirst again because it is only through Christ Jesus that you will find wholeness, completeness, fulfillment, love, forgiveness, grace, and mercy.
In John 7:37-39, “On the last day of the feast, the great day, Jesus stood up and cried out, “If anyone thirsts, let him come to me and drink. Whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said, ‘Out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.’” Now this he said about the Spirit, whom those who believed in him were to receive, for as yet the Spirit had not been given, because Jesus was not yet glorified.”
Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father except through me.” – John 14:6.
It is only through Jesus that one will receive the Holy Spirit, and they will never thirst again. Are you running from the Lord? Are you seeking everywhere but nothing is satisfying your quench for thirst? The problem is that you are drinking the wrong water. It is like you are at Jacob’s Well, and you dip your pail down to drink cool water, but that water will never satisfy your thirst. That is why you keep seeking in all the wrong places.
If you would only surrender your life and your heart to Jesus, ask Him into your life and into your heart, ask for forgiveness of your wrong doings in life which are known as sin. Jesus will forgive you. He will come into your life and into your heart. He will send His Holy Spirit to live in you and you will never thirst again.
What are you waiting for? The time is at hand! No one knows if today we will take our last breath. Pray this simple prayer.
“Dear Jesus, I am a sinner. I believe that you died for me and rose again on the 3rd day. I believe you are God’s Son and that you came into the world to save me. I am sorry for my wrong doings. Please forgive me and come into my life and heart. I want to live for you and serve you all the days of my life.” Amen.
If you prayed that prayer, Jesus has forgiven you and He has come into your life. Get involved in a local Bible believing church. I will be praying for you. May the Lord bless you!
