Notes from the Journey with the Disciples – 117

117. If anyone is thirsty, let him come to me and drink (John 7:37).

There is a thirst that each of us feel, yet few can articulate. A longing for peace, for acceptance, for the possibility of halting the internal chase for…something. This inner turmoil drives many to risk, to attack or defend, to make choices that seem to ease the discomfort in the short-term, but elevate the future price. We’re thirsty for true satisfaction. We need something to calm the waters that daily boil within. Did those who heard Jesus that day understand that? Do we? It’s as though we long for a place we’ve never been. To that longing, Jesus says, “Drink up!”
