He who believes in Me, as the Scripture said, ‘From his innermost being will flow rivers of LIVING WATER.’
“I’m thirsty!” How many times have we said or thought that? And, if possible, we reach for a drink of water. Our bodies need water. In fact, they’re largely made up of water. The U.S. Geological Survey’s (USGS) Water Science School explains just how important water is to our body:
Up to 60% of the human adult body is water. The brain and heart are composed of 73% water, and the lungs are about 83% water.
So we get that our body needs water. But, what about our spirit? It needs water, too; Living Water, the Holy Spirit. Jesus clearly explained this.
If anyone is thirsty, let him come to Me and drink. He who believes in Me, as the Scripture said, “From his innermost being will flow rivers of living water.'”
But this He spoke of the SPIRIT, whom those who believed in Him were to receive; for the SPIRIT was not yet given, because Jesus was not yet glorified.
As water is to the body, so the Holy Spirit is to the soul.
Our body is dead without water. Our spirit is dead without Living Water.
Plain. Simple. Truth. Drink or die.
LIVING WATER, sweet Jesus, thank You for coming from above to speak truth into our lives. Thank You for giving Your Living Holy Spirit to all who turn to You for salvation.
