The children of
As the Children of Israel traveled to an area where there was no water; They complained with loud murmuring to Moses. Both they and their herds were thirsty and they let Moses know it. Moses cried onto God saying, "What shall I do, these people are ready to stone me?" God gave Moses instructions to strike the rock at Horeb with his rod, and water gushed out like a river.
Your Manna you did not withhold from their mouth, And You gave them water for their thirst.
Jesus spoke of Himself as being the Living Water to quench our thirsty spirits.
John 7:38-39 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.
Paul and Peter are reminding us that Jesus is the rock that we can trust to build our life on as a solid foundation.
And all drank the same spiritual drink, for they were drinking from a spiritual rock which followed them; and the rock was Christ.
And coming to Him as to a living stone which has been rejected by men, but is choice and precious in the sight of God.
Let us think about this fact; when we invite Jesus to enter into our life, He will give us Living Water that brings joy and peace. This water is the Water of Life that also brings us eternal life in our spirit and causes us to be accepted by God our Father.
Allow Jesus to be real to you in your heart, and tell Him, "Lord, I believe, evermore give me this Living Water of Life."
