If You Are Thirsty… You Can Be Spirit-Filled
The feeling of thirst tells us we are dehydrated—we need water to live. But just like we sometimes try to quench our thirst in ways that don’t truly refresh us, many people try to quench their spiritual thirst with things that can never really satisfy. We need living water.
“Jesus stood and shouted to the crowds, ‘Anyone who is thirsty may come to me! Anyone who believes in me may come and drink! For the Scriptures declare, “Rivers of living water will flow from his heart.”‘ (When he said ‘living water,’ he was speaking of the Spirit, who would be given to everyone believing in him.)”—John 7:37-39
So who is the Spirit? How did Jesus relate to the Spirit? And what does this mean for us and our relationship with God? Throughout Christian history and in the church today, the Holy Spirit is a topic littered with misconceptions, controversies and concerns. However, the Spirit is also the true Source of our conversion, transformation, growth and power for living and sharing our faith. Discover how you can be Spirit-filled—if you are thirsty.
