Scripture: John 7:37 NASB “Drinks On God”
“Now on the last day, the great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried out, saying, ‘If anyone is thirsty, let him come to Me and drink.'” John 7:37
Why are people thirsty these days? Satan has so sabotaged our environment that it is very difficult to find the truth. In the media? Not hardly. From Church? The Church has been contaminated by false doctrine and weak Bible teaching. From Christians? See previous comment on the Church.
The only place to find truth is in the Bible. It is through God’s Word that we find the Word, Jesus Christ.
If anyone is thirsty, that is, wanting fulfillment and the meaning of life, they would need to come to Jesus.
Even as saved people, we need to go to Jesus everyday for fulfillment and avoid false ideas about God.
Are you going daily to Jesus?
If you are, you will find that you are choosing life (Deut. 30:19)!
I guess if you wanted to get drunk, the better thing would be to get drunk on the Spirit or on Jesus. How do you do that? Get straight with the Bible. Find a good fellowship. The world is trouble (cf. John 16:33). Jesus promises joy (“These things I have spoken to you so that My joy may be in you, and [that] your joy may be made full;” “Truly, truly, I say to you, that you will weep and lament, but the world will rejoice; you will grieve, but your grief will be turned into joy” John 15:11; 16: 20).
Are you joyful today? Ask God what you need to adjust to be in line with Jesus and find joy.
The purpose of the “Choose Life” is to pick a positive help out of the One Year Bible (OYB) reading plan for the day. There is always something positive in the Word of God to cheer us and give us strength. For more on today’s reading, check out my One Year Bible blog: Shake It Up, Baby
