Jesus is the Source For Thirsty Sinner
Only in Christ can be fully satisfied
I invite my reader to follow the text of John 7:37 : " And on the last day , the great day of the feast, Jesus stood upright and cried, saying, ' If anyone thirsts , let him come to Me and drink ' " .
God has the right time for everything in this world . There is a popular adage that says : " God delays , but does not fail ." But the truth is that He never soon and never missed . Bottom line: It comes at the right time. Well , at the right time, the Lord Jesus attended the Feast of Tabernacles . Once there , in front of all those people , the Master , a simple man with a sweet face and eyes that conveyed grace, was in a place where he could excel . At that moment , Jesus , God incarnate , revealed to those present and said : "Whoever is thirsty come to me and drink ."
It is possible that these people could not reach the full depth of the revelation of Christ . In fact , he was not offering the net we all know , knowing that the water in the Middle East is a very precious commodity , but the Lord was speaking of something much bigger : a solution for any difficulty in all areas of life . The Master said "who is thirsty " , or maybe you need help come to me that I present the proper solution.
Once, the Lord caught a dialogue with the Samaritan woman at Jacob's well According to the Holy Bible , Jesus offers her the same source of living water . At first , the lady could not understand the profound words of the Master , because , in fact , she understood that the Nazarene was offering natural water . But he was referring to spiritual life , ie, a good that the Law of Moses and the religious teachers of the day could not offer . Jesus said at that moment : " I am the source of blessings to all mankind ."
For this woman , the Master said : " Whoever drinks the water I give him will never thirst , but the water that I shall give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life." I wish to communicate something important to you about this matter : we all know that God , the Lord is the Creator , we are the image and likeness of our God and He has the favor of heaven , ie , all we need to live well .
Observe Chapter 47 of the book of the prophet Ezekiel , when he realized that the south of the altar of God was a birthplace of water coming from the sky . I want to tell them that the source has not dried yet and the Lord continues to send purifying waters for men to drink and have their problems solved , because God is the Lord of all creation .
