What Thirsty Souls Can Find in Jesus {Day 21}

If anyone thirsty quote

When Jesus said the words, He used the word dipsao to ask if we were thirsty. It means thirst for, desire earnestly.

Figuratively, those are said to thirst who painfully feel their want of, and eagerly long for, those things by which the soul is refreshed, supported, strengthened.

When Jesus said drink, He used the Greek word pino. It means drink, imbibe.

Figuratively, to receive into the soul what serves to refresh, strengthen, nourish it unto eternal life.

Here’s why it matters . . .

Because if you and I drink what only Jesus offers, if we let Him and only Him quench the thirst in our souls, He will refresh, strengthen, nourish them unto eternal life. If we come to Jesus and drink, we will never again painfully feel want of and eagerly long for those things by which our souls are refreshed, supported, strengthened.

And we will find true living, real nourishment, genuine life in Jesus Christ.
