Scripture Quote: Jesus replied: I am the bread that gives life! No one who comes to me will ever be hungry. No one who has faith in me will ever be thirsty. (John 6:35)
We, who have received the gift of salvation from Christ, have within us the living, Holy Spirit, who is our eternal spring of life. Believers have the Lord's doctrine, explaining and promising the gifts and graces of the Holy Spirit, which proceed from Jesus our fountain, dwelling in our believing hearts. Christians who receive Christ's doctrine and believe in Him, will be perfectly satisfied. All the guilt of our sins have been blotted out and our souls have been purified before God. Since we are able to love Christ with all our hearts, we are also able to rest fully and happily in our God.
Like a spring that is continually supplied with water from the great deep, with which it has interaction, so will the soul of the genuine Believer be supplied with love and life - And all the other graces of the indwelling Holy Spirit, from our indwelling Lord Jesus. Like the heart distributes blood to every part of the human body, so God, by Jesus Christ, conveys the life giving streams of His providential goodness to all who believe and trust fully in Him.
Today’s meditation: Believers are supplied with Christ’s thirst quenching springs of life.
Memory Verse: “Have faith in me, and you will have life-giving water flowing from deep inside you, just as the Scriptures say." (John 7:38)
