Water pouring into glassI’ve been very thirsty before. If I eat pizza, pasta or something spicy, I will be thirsty for quite a while after I eat. My body requires water to survive. I have learned over the years that water is the best quencher of my thirst.  Jesus speaks of a thirst for living water. Check this out…

37 On the last and greatest day of the festival, Jesus stood and said in a loud voice, “Let anyone who is thirsty come to me and drink. 38 Whoever believes in me, as Scripture has said, rivers of living water will flow from within them.” 39 By this he meant the Spirit, whom those who believed in him were later to receive. Up to that time the Spirit had not been given, since Jesus had not yet been glorified. (John 7:37-39 NIV)

I really want the “rivers of living water” to flow out of me. I want my encounter with others to be a positive experience and I want them to notice that the Spirit lives inside of me. I want His Presence to come out in conversation, action – my everyday walking around life. I want people in Real Estate world to notice Him in me. I want the checker at Wal-mart or Kroger to notice the Spirit inside of me. For others to notice, I’ve got to let Him shine out of me!

Pressing On!
