6 And He said to me, “It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. I will give of the fountain of the water of life freely to him who thirsts.
17 And the Spirit and the bride say, “Come!” And let him who hears say, “Come!” And let him who thirsts come. Whoever desires, let him take the water of life freely.
3 For I will pour water on him who is thirsty, And floods on the dry ground; I will pour My Spirit on your descendants, And My blessing on your offspring;
1 “Ho! Everyone who thirsts, Come to the waters; And you who have no money, Come, buy and eat. Yes, come, buy wine and milk Without money and without price.
God wants to quench our thirst and He is able to do so. In fact, all who come to God for spiritual water find all that they need at no cost to themselves. The Author of our salvation desires that all who come to Him have their thirst quenched and is able to completely satisfy all who come.
When God spoke through the prophet Isaiah He made clear His offer of eternal life to those who could come to Him for His life-giving water. When Jesus met the woman at the well He offered her himself as the eternal water of life. Throughout time God has offered spiritual satisfaction, eternal life, to those who would come to Him with their thirst. Here we see that at the end of time, God will continue to be the source of satisfaction for all who continue to seek Him.
Where do those in rebellion to God go to when they are thirsty? Are those fountains, that look so incredibly beautiful, able to quench spiritual thirst? Are the fountains of this world, of fame, of power, of money, of luxury, of sex, of self-will; are these fountains able to bring eternal satisfaction? Only the offer from God, only His water, which He has paid for and offers freely to all, can ever satisfy.
Would you stop drinking at the fountains that cannot satisfy and come to the only Fountain that can?
We are thanking God for a wonderful Sunday together here at Grace for Life. It was a great day in many ways and we are thankful. We especially enjoyed the Josh Hedges family as Josh presented his work and we got to enjoy the family.
The message from Sunday is on the church website.
Nancy Schmidt ended up back in the hospital Sunday night with more fluid on her lungs. Keep our sister in your prayers. She is on a donor list for a new liver.
Have a great day in the Lord,
