Living Water

Last Friday we celebrated the life of a dear friend and faithful brother, Grover Jackson.

The memories spoken of and shared in conversations ran along a general theme. Grover will be remembered for his kindness, his wisdom, his insight, and his love for God and God’s people.

It was on the last day, the greatest day, of the Feast of Tabernacles when Jesus spoke these words,
“Let anyone who is thirsty come to me and drink. 38 Whoever believes in me, as Scripture has said, rivers of living water will flow from within them.” (John 7:37-38 NIV)

It is in these words, Jesus shows us the source of such wisdom. Drinking deeply from Jesus and allowing those rivers of living water to flow from within us is the key.

We are blessed with a good number of individuals who drink deeply from the word of God and strive to pattern their lives in the likeness and image of Jesus.

May their numbers increase.

May we all take up the invitation from Jesus himself and come to him to drink deeply and constantly.

The living waters that give life, wisdom, joy, peace, and all spiritual blessings are there for the drinking.

Come and drink.
