"Jesus then stood up and cried out, saying, If any man thirst let him come to me and drink. He that believes on me, as the Scriptures have said, out of his heart shall flow rivers of living water" ....John 7:37-38

What is thirst? It is a state of need, a state of being unsatisfied. But whoever drinks the water offered by the Lord Jesus shall never thirst again. Every born again believer may know not only contentment but also total satisfaction in their life! Being satisfied is much, much more than just being content. If one knows only contentment then he has yet to know more. What God has given us in the life of Christ, that resides within every believer, is a total satisfaction that causes us to be satisfied both now and forever! We don't need any more satisfaction when we have Jesus resident within. Christ in us is God's very best!

Not only is there total satisfaction for us but also a flowing of 'living-water' out from within us, that will flow to others and satisfy their thirst also! This is truly amazing! This living-water in us actually causes other people to find satisfaction also and quench their thirst. (For we minister life not doctrine!)

Today in the Church as Christ's body, we need to inquire of ourselves, do people have their thirst quenched when they have made contact with us or not? Do we extend to them some living water of life or do we leave them in the desert where we found them, having added just a sermon or some doctrine? Has the living Christ in our hearts made an impact on their life and shown them the answer to their need ?
