“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – John 7:37-38

TODAY’S WORD…

.

Jesus stood and said in a loud voice,

“Let anyone who is thirsty come to me and drink.

Whoever believes in me, as Scripture has said,

rivers of living water will flow from within them.”

.

– John 7:37-38 (NIV)

REFLECTION…

.

“Let anyone who is thirsty come to me and drink.”

In Ezekiel 47, we read about the torrents of water which would pour out of the temple.

Our Lord presents Himself as He who can fill man’s heart and bring him peace.

Ii is in this connection that St Augustine exclaims:

"You made us for yourself, Lord, and our hearts find no peace until they rest in you"

.

All those who come to Jesus receive new life abundantly.

.

.

.

PRAYER…

.

I am thirsty Lord – fill me with Your Spirit.

I am thirsty Lord – let me drink from the water of life that only You bring.

I thirst for You Lord.

.

Revive my spirit with Your living water, that I may know You better;

that I may better recognize Your voice;

that I may be more willing do Your Will;

that I may completely trust in You.

.

Lord, fill me till I overflow;

fill me till my heart finds peace;

fill me till my heart is so full of You that streams of living water will flow out onto my loved ones,

onto those I come in contact with every day of my life.

.

Amen.
