Thought of the Day !!

On the last and greatest day of the Feast, Jesus stood and said in a loud voice, "If anyone is thirsty, let him come to me and drink.  Whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said, steams of living water will flow from within him."
                                              John 7:37-38 (NIV)

Are you thirsty?  Has this life left you parched?  Do you thirst for something that will sustain you instead of just making you more thirsty?  Jesus wants you to know that if you are then you can come to Him and He will give you something that will satisfy your thirst.  He will give you Himself by way of the Holy Spirit.

Many are thirsty, yet they are afraid of change.  Many are thirsty, yet they are afraid of being considered a religious fanatic.  And then there are those who simply don't understand, or who have a misguided perception of the Holy Spirit.  But the Holy Spirit is Jesus.  Having the Holy Spirit within us means that we are filled with life and that life flows from us because we cannot keep God cooped up within us.

If you have been drained because the world has let you down with promises of fulfillment not come true, then seek Jesus to fill you up.  Accept His ways over yours or the world's ways.  Find peace and comfort in His presence.  Find joy in serving Him by serving others.  Find love within the community of believers.  Enjoy the living water that will never allow you to be thirsty again.

In the love of Christ,
