Anglican Daily Fountain 5th March 2024 (Devotional Today)

Welcome to Today’s Daily Fountain Devotional of the Anglican Church of Nigeria. Daily Fountain is a daily reading devotional for all Anglicans and Non-Anglicans to read, study, share and discuss the Word of God on a daily basis.

TOPIC: JESUS THE LIVING WATER

TEXT: John 7: 25-53(KJV)
7:25. Then said some of them of Jerusalem, Is not this he, whom they seek to kill?
7:26. But, lo, he speaketh boldly, and they say nothing unto him. Do the rulers know indeed that this is the very Christ?

7:27. Howbeit we know this man whence he is: but when Christ cometh, no man knoweth whence he is.
7:28. Then cried Jesus in the temple as he taught, saying, Ye both know me, and ye know whence I am: and I am not come of myself, but he that sent me is true, whom ye know not.
7:29. But I know him: for I am from him, and he hath sent me.
7:30. Then they sought to take him: but no man laid hands on him, because his hour was not yet come.

7:31. And many of the people believed on him, and said, When Christ cometh, will he do more miracles than these which this man hath done?
7:32. The Pharisees heard that the people murmured such things concerning him; and the Pharisees and the chief priests sent officers to take him.
7:33. Then said Jesus unto them, Yet a little while am I with you, and then I go unto him that sent me.
7:34. Ye shall seek me, and shall not find me: and where I am, thither ye cannot come.

7:35. Then said the Jews among themselves, Whither will he go, that we shall not find him? will he go unto the dispersed among the Gentiles, and teach the Gentiles?
7:36. What manner of saying is this that he said, Ye shall seek me, and shall not find me: and where I am, thither ye cannot come?
7:37. In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink.
7:38. He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.

7:39. (But this spake he of the Spirit, which they that believe on him should receive: for the Holy Ghost was not yet given; because that Jesus was not yet glorified.)
7:40. Many of the people therefore, when they heard this saying, said, Of a truth this is the Prophet.
7:41. Others said, This is the Christ. But some said, Shall Christ come out of Galilee?
7:42. Hath not the scripture said, That Christ cometh of the seed of David, and out of the town of Bethlehem, where David was?

7:43. So there was a division among the people because of him.
7:44. And some of them would have taken him; but no man laid hands on him.
7:45. Then came the officers to the chief priests and Pharisees; and they said unto them, Why have ye not brought him?

7:46. The officers answered, Never man spake like this man.
7:47. Then answered them the Pharisees, Are ye also deceived?
7:48. Have any of the rulers or of the Pharisees believed on him?
7:49. But this people who knoweth not the law are cursed.

7:50. Nicodemus saith unto them, (he that came to Jesus by night, being one of them,)
7:51. Doth our law judge any man, before it hear him, and know what he doeth?
7:52. They answered and said unto him, Art thou also of Galilee? Search, and look: for out of Galilee ariseth no prophet.
7:53. And every man went unto his own house.

Anglican Daily Fountain 5th March 2024 STUDY:

Jesus’ words in our text “If anyone is thirsty, let him come to me and drink” alluded to the theme of the Messiah’s life-giving blessings (Isa. 12:2,3:44:3, 4:58:11) Jesus used the term ‘living water’ in John 4:10 to indicate eternal life. In our text, He used the term to refer to the Holy Spirit. Wherever the Holy Spirit is accepted, He brings eternal life. He also empowered Jesus’ followers to live a life of righteousness to gain eternal life.

Jesus Christ is the river of life and the fountain flowing freely everywhere and whoever drinks from it shall never be thirsty again. This is a great invitation for you to come and drink in order not to be thirsty again. Come to the river of life and drink to have everlasting life. The Holy Spirit is available to all who believe in Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour. This is not automatic but one must thirst and empty every other desire so that the Holy Spirit can come and fill our vessels. The Holy Spirit does not dwell in a dirty place -we must be holy to receive a holy thing.

PRAYER: Father; please give me the living water to drink so that I will not thirst again.
