Rivers Of Living Waters

John 7:37-39 “Now on the last day, the great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried out, saying, “If anyone is thirsty, let him come to Me and drink. 38″He who believes in Me, as the Scripture said, ‘From his innermost being will flow rivers of living water.’” 39But this He spoke of the Spirit, whom those who believed in Him were to receive; for the Spirit was not yet given, because Jesus was not yet glorified.”
Jesus promised rivers of living water would flow from our innermost being, if we would drink of his spirit. But drinking your fill of his spirit, does not constitute a flowing river. If we simply drink, but dam up that living water within us, it simply becomes a stagnate pool of water. In order for it to become a continually flowing river of water, we must allow it to flow out of us. We do this by helping others, and praying for others sincerely and fervently. Then the flow begins to flow, as a river of spiritual power, to others; and the power of God begins to work in us and for us
Yes, it is good to be filled with the spirit, but we can’t become complacent with being “spirit filled”. The spirit of God is a gift from God to be shared with others in order for His spirit to reach its anticipated power and promises to us.
God has always lived within a temple. In 70 A.D the Romans destroyed that temple in Jerusalem. Today each of us is the temple where God lives, and where He reaches out to His people through us.
Are you thirsty for the spirit of God. Then come to Jesus and drink, not just to satisfy yourself, but to share His power through the living waters that flow though you to others, as you help them and pray for them. Don’t ignore or take for granted the plight of your fellow man. Change their lives with the river of living water that flows from Him through you, and watch the changes that happen within yourself.
