LET THE THIRSTY COME – JOHN 3: 37 (DAY 14)

“On the last day that great day of the feast, Jesus cried, saying, if any man thirst, let him come unto me and drink”

A solemn call, deeply and serious, is still going out today loud and clear: Come if you are thirsty. Thirst means a dryness in the throat associated with a craving for liquids, produced by deprivation of drink or other causes.

Thirst is worse than hunger. It dries the body and the bone. It causes gallstone formation in the human body. All of the above explanations are to show the seriousness of being thirsty.

Many believers are seriously thirsty yet the fountain of life is flowing unceasingly (Psalm 36:9). “But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life” (John 4:14).

It will be very unfortunate for you to continue in the programme where the fountain of water is pouring away and yet go out thirsty. Jesus invites you to this water that quenches thirst.

Thirst could be of two types and could be caused by two things. There are those who thirst and hunger after righteousness Matt 5:6. These ones are the ones that Jesus said they shall be filled.

This is the type of thirst that is recommended for any child of God. It is the type of thirst that leads to spiritual
growth and flourishing. It is the type of thirst that brings the presence of God to life

The second type of thirst is the type that is caused by the reason of one running away from the presence of God. It is the type that is caused by sin and rebellion. Example of such thirst is that of the prodigal son (Luke 15:11-18).

He ran out of the presence of God, finished what he collected from the father and became hungry. Another example is the woman of Samaria who lived in sin and continued to go to the well of Jacob in a bid to quench the thirst caused by her immoral lifestyle.

Are you thirsty? What is the cause of your thirst? Whatever is the cause of your thirst, whether for righteousness or sin, Jesus is ready to quench all the thirst. He is ready to release you from the burden of sin and self that has brought so much hunger in your life. If it is righteousness, God is ready to fill you up to become that which he desires of your life.

PRAYER POINTS

1. Ask God to help your thirst.
2. Pray that your thirst and hunger for righteousness will be insatiable until God fulfils his words to you.
3. Pray that no other thing apart from God can satisfy you.
