What’s the thirstiest you ever remember being? Maybe you were hiking or running a race, and all you wanted to do was to stop and gulp down some water. Or, maybe you were preparing for surgery, and all you were allowed to have were some ice chips, wishing a nurse would sneak you a tall glass of water. But you know what? As strong as physical thirst can be, there’s a deeper thirst inside us, too, isn’t there? A “soul thirst.” We long to have our “soul thirst” satisfied, but where do we go?
One day long ago in Jerusalem, Jesus shouted above the noise of the crowd, “If anyone thirsts, let him come to me and drink.” Join us as we pause to give thoughtful, personal consideration to Jesus’ amazingly gracious invitation that we find in John 7:37-39.
