The Promise

Rev. Tetteh-Annor Larbi | April 26, 2024 | John 7:37-39



KEY VERSE:

³⁷. . . If anyone thirsts, let him come to Me and drink. ³⁸ He who believes in Me, as the Scripture had said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water. John 7:37-38 (NKJV)

 

MESSAGE:

Jesus stands at the centre of a bustling crowd during the Feast of Tabernacles, and amidst the noise and excitement, he utters a profound promise. He declares, "If anyone is thirsty, let him come to me and drink. Whoever believes in me, as Scripture has said, rivers of living water will flow from within them." These words are not just an invitation; they promise spiritual abundance and renewal.

 

Jesus offers a timeless invitation to quench our deepest thirst—the longing of our souls. In a world that often leaves us feeling parched and weary, Jesus promises living water that satisfies and sustains us. This water is not stagnant; it is a flowing stream of grace, love, and spiritual vitality that continually replenishes and refreshes our inner being.

 

The promise of living water is not limited to a single moment or experience. It is a continuous outpouring of the Holy Spirit, who dwells within every believer. As we come to Jesus and drink from the wellspring of his grace, the Spirit flows through us, transforming our lives and overflowing into the lives of others. We become channels of God's love and compassion, bringing hope and healing to a thirsty world.

 

FEET AND HANDS FOR THE MESSAGE:

 Let us heed Jesus' invitation and claim his promise of living water. Let us come to him with open hearts, ready to receive the abundance of his grace. Let us drink deeply from the well of his love.  May we be filled to overflowing, becoming conduits of his life-giving Spirit in every aspect of our lives.

 

PRAYER:

Lord, I drink deep of the wells of your love. May I overflow and become a channel of your love to reach others with the saving knowledge of Christ our redeemer. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.

 

THERE SHALL BE SHOWERS OF BLESSING.

 SHOWERS! BLESSINGS!!

 

DAILY word study: THIRSTS

The Greek word for "thirsts" used in our key verse is "διψάω" (dipsao), which means to suffer from thirst or to be thirsty. In this context, it symbolizes the deep spiritual longing and yearning for meaning, purpose, and satisfaction that all people feel at some point in their lives.

Jesus invites anyone who is spiritually thirsty to come to him and drink. The act of coming to Jesus represents placing one's trust and faith in him as the source of spiritual satisfaction and fulfilment. Jesus offers the solution to the human condition of spiritual thirst by providing living water, which symbolizes the Holy Spirit and the abundant and eternal life that comes through a relationship with him.


Reflections: Are we looking to Jesus as the ultimate source of satisfaction for our souls, or are we seeking fulfilment in worldly pursuits that ultimately leave us empty and unsatisfied? Jesus invites us to come to him and drink deeply of the living water he offers, allowing his Spirit to quench our spiritual thirst and satisfy the deepest longings of our hearts.
