My mother knew the value of drinking water. She always told us to drink more water. She explained us how water is important for our body. So we drank water. She gave all the statistics about water and how it keeps our body on the right track. But recently she was sick. And the doctors told her that it was because she did not drink enough water. I was surprised. She knew the value of water. She had all the statistics right. She could take you through a lesson on water and you would not be bored. But what she failed to do was to actually drink it. She didn’t drink enough though she knew and taught all things to us.
Well, this may be the condition of many who say they follow Christ. They know the value of the Christ. They may have the statistics of the bible at their finger tips. They also explain about how Christ keeps us at the right track. But someday they fall sick. And the reason, they have not actually drunk enough. As in the case of water, taking a drink is what matters. All the knowledge is good but it’s actually taking a drink from the cup of Christ that matters.
This is what Jesus shouts at you today. “Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink.”-John 7:37.
Are you thirty in life? Is it time to actually have a drink? It is free and it’s refreshing.
