Spiritual Thirst

There’s nothing worse than being thirsty, seriously thirsty!

Millions are slowly dying of thirst in our world, but theirs is a different kind of thirst.  Spiritual thirst is pandemic and has been all through the ages.  The symptoms are fairly easy to identify: people grabbing anything and everything in a vain attempt to satisfy the longing, and never succeeding in quenching their need for more.

In many cases they find a substitute that can mask the symptoms for a time, but the crisis always returns…

Jesus Christ offered Mankind living water, a kind of water that could quench a spiritual thirst for all time.  He said that this would be like a spring of water within, welling up into eternal life.

Spiritual thirst can be quenched; all we need to do is take a big long pull from the right cup!

  1. Good timing. I am getting ready to write a script for Jesus’ 40-day temptation. Will be using a lot of symbolism. Thank you.

    This post was perfect for Sunday. I taught my class of 4th-6th graders about the Israelites wandering in the desert and always complaining about having no water and being thirsty enough to die. I too directed the class to the fact that Jesus is the Rock, and out of him (his death on the cross – “striking the rock”) comes streams of living water (eternal life.). Thanks!
