October 8, 2016: I’m Thirsty

Daily Berry Patch Devotions in 2016 - Day 282  

Devotional Song:  … GO TO THIS LINK …   Please take the time to take in a You Tube video of Hiengiwe Mhlaba singing live … Let Your Living Water Flow, poignantly singing in prayer that all need Jesus’ living waters to be able to come to Him to receive eternal life

Highlight Passage: John 4:13-14 [NKJV] …  
13 Jesus answered and said to her, “Whoever drinks of this water will thirst again, 14 but whoever drinks of the water that I shall give him will never thirst. But the water that I shall give him will become in him a fountain of water springing up into everlasting life.” 
… Jesus shows the woman the real water of the Spirit, the water which gives life.
Highlight Context: John 4:7-15 [NKJV] … USE THIS LINK 
… Jesus gives the Samaritan woman “living water.”

Reference Passage #1 … John 7:37-39 [NKJV] … USE THIS LINK 
… Jesus prophesies the coming of His Spirit to give believers eternal living waters.

My Journal for Today:  … Our Daily Bread author, Cindy Hess Kasper, tells about interesting technology which allows those with impure waters to have purified and “living waters.” She wrote: Because it is so difficult in parts of the world to find clean drinking water, an organization called Water Is Life developed a wonderful resource called “The Drinkable Book.” [See attached photo] …The paper in the book is coated in silver nanoparticles that filter out almost 99.9 percent of harmful bacteria! Each tear-out page can be used and reused to filter up to 100 liters of water at the cost of only four pennies per page. 

And beyond the physical technology which supplies life-giving waters to those who must drink non-potable water, the “drinkable book” can supply the truth of the “living waters” only Christ can supply.

And in that wonderful true story of Jesus at the well with a Samaritan woman [see John 4 in today’s highlight passage above], The Messiah revealed Himself to the woman, showing her that there were “living waters” which were far more important to eternal life than the water from that well. And the woman went away bathed from her sin and able to share those “living waters” with others.

I pray that all who read with me have surrendered to our Lord’s eternal promise and will partake of God’s living waters now and forever.

My Prayer Today: Lord, thank You for supplying Your living waters which give us life eternal. Amen
