Devotional: ‘All Who Are Thirsty’

Standard

Have you ever been extremely thirsty? Experts tell us that thirst lets us know that there is not enough water in our bloodstream. Although we may last for a while without an adequate supply of water, sooner or later we will die if we become too dehydrated.

Although most of us consume a sufficient amount of water to survive physically, many believers are spiritually dehydrated. For many, a sip of water once a week is their total intake. Even more tragic is the fact that for many believers, they do not quench their thirst even once a week. For some it has been weeks, months and even years since they last replenished their souls.

Yet all of this is so foolish when we realize that God is pleading with us to drink freely from His River of Living Water.

“Come, all you who are thirsty, come to the waters; and you who have no money, come, buy and eat! Come, buy wine and milk without money and without cost.  Why spend money on what is not bread, and your labor on what does not satisfy? Listen, listen to me, and eat what is good, and your soul will delight in the richest of fare.”  (Isaiah 55:1-2)

God’s spiritual water flows from the fountainhead of His grace. Money can’t purchase this water, nor can hard work achieve it. It is a free gift from God, not of any human works lest any man should boast. (see Ephesians 2:8-9)

But in order to receive this life-giving water, we must come with a thirsty soul and ready to drink. “Come, all you who are thirsty…Come and your soul will delight in the richest of fare.”

Is your soul parched today? Then accept God’s gracious invitation to come and drink.
