Life in all it’s fullness
Rivers of living water will flow from within them’ John 7:38
Near to where I live in Lewes is the Winterbourne Stream. As it's name suggests, it's a stream that only flows in the Winter months. It's a chalk stream, that begins to flow when the downs around become fully saturated with rain water, then, like a sponge, can hold no more. At that point the Winterbourne flows. One day it's not there, the next day it is. The water is clear and fast flowing - I love it, and walk by it into town most days.
Here in John chapter 7, the Lord Jesus invites the 'thirsty' to come to Him and drink. He means, of course, the spiritually thirsty. For those that do come and 'drink' of the saviour - those who 'believe' in Him (v38), there begins a flow of 'living water' that flows out from within them. This 'living water' is the Holy Spirit (v39). Not only does this water satisfy the believer, but it overflows to be a blessing wherever the believer goes. God's love is a river that flows out, not a lake that stays still.
The Winterbourne stream ceases to flow in late Spring. God's living stream never ceases to flow. It's a spring of water that 'wells up to eternal life’ (John 4:15). 'Give me this water' cries the Samaritan woman at the well.
Why not make her words your prayer today?
'Let the one who is thirsty come; and let the one who wishes take the free gift of the water of life'
