Rivers of Living Water

The coolest invitation ever.

Obey your thirst!

So I wrote this song in 1999 when I read these words on the last page of the Bible:

The Spirit and the Bride say “Come”
Let the one who hears say “Come”
Let whosoever who is thirsty come.
Let everyone who wants drink from the waters of life freely.
(Revelation 22:17)

I was shocked by these words.
They were so open ended… so full of welcome ….so full of grace.
So unlike the face and heart of the Christianity I had been exposed to full of moral condemnation and religious exclusion.

I knew they were a song as well…and then I heard this resonating verse in John.
(John 7:37-38)

When we drink of the waters of life through faith in Christ, He opens up a spring of living water in our innermost being that satisfies our spiritual thirst and for it is the Spirit we seek. Now it is in us and must flow out of us.
