Thirsty Hearts

4th & 5th June

Weekend Edition

And walk in love, as Christ also has loved us and given Himself for us, an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet-smelling aroma.”
Ephesians 5:2

We seek solace in physical comforts and people, forgetting that every sip of water and experience is a dim reflection of the eternal life and everlasting love Christ offers us. Our need for love is like our need for water: continuous. A single cup of water will not sustain us for a month, and a single experience of friendship will not sustain us for a lifetime. We long for more, wanting to know we are loved and valued.

When Jesus met the woman at the well, He spoke to her of life-giving water: drink once and be satisfied forever. This water would quench her thirst and become “a fountain of water springing up into everlasting life” (John 4:14b). Jesus was offering Himself—all she had to do was ask. How often do we go through the day, forgetting to invite Jesus in? Jesus desires to satisfy our deepest needs and transform us to become like Him, bringing life and hope wherever we go.1

As we walk more in who we are Him, as we fill ourselves with His everlasting and eternal ‘water’, we begin to be transformed into His likeness and washed clean from our sinful nature’s. Today reach out to God and asked Him to fill your life with more of Him.
