"If anyone is thirsty, let him come to me and drink." NIV
"If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink." KJV
Being thirsty is a great motivator for us to find something
to quench our thirst. We understand by nature that if we do
not drink eventually we will die. Just as this is true for our
physical bodies, it is true for our spiritual lives. We cannot
quench our spiritual thirst with anything from this world.
The water we need for our thirsty souls is Jesus Christ.
Like our human bodies need continual water, our souls
need Jesus Christ continually.
Heavenly Father, for the times we have looked to the
things of this world to satisfy a longing in our souls,
we ask you to forgive us. We know there is nothing in
this world that will quench the thirst of our spirit and
we give you praise and glory for giving us this spiritual
water to drink in abundance. In Jesus' name, Amen.
