On the last and greatest day of the Feast, Jesus stood and said in a loud voice, “If anyone is thirsty, let him come to me and drink. Whoever believes in me, as the Scripture said, streams of living water will flow from within him.”
Streams of water — living water for dry hopes, cool water for parched hearts, refreshing water for those tired and weary. This is, of course, much more than a liquid we can drink with our lips. This is the ultimate water of the soul God longs to give us. It’s what the Father sent Jesus to give his children. Let’s spend the month of August refreshing ourselves with the promises of Jesus and trusting that, as we draw close to him, the Spirit will restore our souls, and the living water of the Spirit will flow within us.
Loving Father, thank you for sending Jesus to save me and the Holy Spirit to sustain and renew me and be your presence inside me. Please bless me, especially this month, as I seek to draw closer to my Savior and restore my soul with the refreshing living water of your Holy Spirit. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
