When we discover God’s river running through our lives, we’re tapping into something with the power to change the world.
Want to follow up on these concepts? Here are some great ideas flowing from the message: Jesus stood and said in a loud voice, “Let anyone who is thirsty come to me and drink. Whoever believes in me, as Scripture has said, rivers of living water will flow from within them.” By this he meant the Spirit, whom those who believed in him were later to receive. Up to that time the Spirit had not been given, since Jesus had not yet been glorified.” (John 7:37-39).
Take a few minutes and visualize what Jesus is saying here so you can believe it like he wants you to.
– Picture yourself coming to Jesus for a drink.
– Drink what he gives you. Then picture a stream of living water—the Holy Spirit, along with his joy, peace, and power—welling up within you, filling you body, soul, and spirit. He quenches your thirst, fills your soul, and completes you.
… Now imagine it flowing out of you to affect the world around you. Imagine it flowing continuously, overflowing, invisible to the people around you but as real as a stream in the physical world around you.
