Come

Come

Scripture:

The Spirit and the bride say, “Come.” Let anyone who hears this say, “Come.” Let anyone who is thirsty come. Let anyone who desires drink freely from the water of life. (Revelation 22:17 NLT)

Such amazing events described in John’s Revelation! Wars, beasts, dragons, plagues, judgments, demonstrations of power on a truly cosmic level. Nations rising and falling, truth and lies, destruction on a planet-shaking level. It’s like all the battle scenes from all the Star Wars movies put together!

Then God rolls out the new heavens and the new earth and brings the Holy City from heaven to earth and makes peace and harmony and health and safety available and accessible to all whose names are written in the Lamb’s book of life.

The Spirit of God says, “Anyone who is thirsty may come and drink freely from the water of life.” The Bride of Christ says, “Anyone who is thirsty may come and drink freely from the water of life.” Everyone who hears and believes becomes a messenger of the greatest Good News of all time, saying, “Anyone who desires may come and drink freely from the water of life.”

I need to remember that the final message in the Bible is “Anyone who is thirsty may come and drink freely from the water of life.” No matter what’s happening in earth and heaven, no matter what colossal events are occurring, the way is open for the thirsty to come and drink freely and live.

Prayer:

Father, Please keep me from getting so caught up in discussions about the meaning of world events and speculation about what’s next and how it affects me that I forget to say “Come and drink freely of the water of life!” Keep me from getting so caught up in my own challenges and opportunities, beliefs and practices that I forget the message is, “Anyone who is thirsty may come and drink freely of the water of life.” Keep me from forgetting that no matter what’s going on, the message is, “If you are thirsty, come and drink freely of the water of life.” Amen.
