Rivers of Living Water

Christ Jesus has risen. The Spirit has fallen onto God’s people. We are God’s people, and we have life through the Spirit. Rivers of living water flow through us as the Holy Spirit lives in us, giving us hope in the resurrection.

“If anyone thirsts, let him come to me and drink. Whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said, ‘Out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.’”

(John 7:37-38)

The good news of the gospel is that we have salvation through Christ’s sacrifice. His life made atonement for our sins. We no longer live with a penalty over our heads for the sins we have committed, for God has poured into us His Spirit, and we are now free.

God lives in us through the Holy Spirit, guiding us throughout our walk with Christ. He provides us the courage to give when we do not have, to bless when we are not well, and to show love toward those who hate us. As His Spirit flows through us, we are His.

How wonderful God is to have given His Helper to us the Holy Spirit as a way to change our hearts of stone into hearts of flesh. How great is our God to have sacrificed His life so that we might live. How generous is He to have poured into us rivers of living water.

  1. Thanks Jack,

    I love your dedication and Love of Jesus, but your understanding of how salvation works GOD’S way is lacking. Still it is a JOY to see another heart filled with the LOVE of our Precious God. Amen!
