Weekly Pursuit – Week 2 of April

Verse:

John 7:37 “Now on the last day, the great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried out, saying, If anyone thirsts, let him come to Me and drink.”

Excerpts:

We drink the water of life through receiving and taking by believing. According to John 7:39, we receive the Spirit as the living water by believing into Christ. Revelation 22:17 speaks of taking the water of life freely. As we call on the name of the Lord, we spontaneously receive the living water and take it freely. If we call on the Lord, we shall have living faith. The more we call, the more we shall believe, and the more we believe, the more we shall receive and take the living water.

Calling on the Lord’s name solves all our problems. If you are filled with sorrow and worry, …if you are disappointed, discouraged, or distracted, call on Him. Call on Him when you are weak and when you are strong. By calling you receive and take the living water.

The drinking of the water of life and the flowing of the water of life go together… In John 7:37 and 38, …the Lord Jesus said of the one who believes in Him and drinks of Him, “out of his innermost being shall flow rivers of living water.” The drinking and the flowing are thus two aspects of one thing.

Without the flowing of the water of life, our drinking is in vain. In fact, if we do not flow, we shall not be able to continue drinking. Drinking is nullified by the lack of flowing. The genuine drinking of the water of life depends on the flowing. (Life-study of Exodus, msgs. 44~45)
