Come to the Lord if you are thirsty

Isaiah 55:1 NLT – “Is anyone thirsty? Come and drink- even if you have no money! Come, take your choice of wine or milk- it’s all free!

Coming to the Lord if you are thirsty is a common theme throughout the Bible. We see it in both the Old and New Testaments.

In Exodus the Lord gave water to the Israelites when they were walking through the desert to Mount Sinai (see Exodus 17:1-6). God told Moses to strike the rock and water will flow.

The same offer of water is part of Jesus’ discussion with the Samaritan woman at the well (John 4:13-14). He said the water He gives will bubble up inside them and they will never be thirsty again.

Jesus repeats the offer to the crowds in Jerusalem (John 7:37-38). He said that anyone who believes and comes to Him, will drink and streams of living water will flow from them.

Finally, John records it at the final stage of his revelation (Revelation 22:17). In this passage Jesus calls us to drink freely from the water of life…everlasting life.

In all of these passages we see the ongoing call to come to the Lord if we are thirsty. We see that the Lord wants to give us the water of life. The water that satisfies not only for this life, but for all eternity.

If you are feeling dry in your faith and life at the moment, I would encourage you to come to the Lord afresh today. Imagine yourself at the edge of the waterfall in the image above and call out to Him.

Don’t hold back, just dive in and be refreshed. He has more than enough for us all!
