“If anyone is thirsty, let him come to me, and let the one who believes in me drink.” — John 7:37 NET
I desperately want to be in the courts of the Lord’s temple. My heart and my entire being shout for joy to the living God.—O God, you are my God! I long for you! My soul thirsts for you, my flesh yearns for you, in a dry and parched land where there is no water. Yes, in the sanctuary I have seen you, and witnessed your power and splendor.
“Hey, all who are thirsty, come to the water! You who have no money, come! Buy and eat! Come! Buy wine and milk without money and without cost!”—The Spirit and the bride say, “Come!” And let the one who hears say: “Come!” And let the one who is thirsty come; let the one who wants it take the water of life free of charge.—“Whoever drinks some of the water that I will give him will never be thirsty again, but the water that I will give him will become in him a fountain of water springing up to eternal life.”—“My blood is true drink.”
Eat, friends, and drink! Drink freely, O lovers!
Ps 84:2, Ps 63:1-2, Isa 55:1, Rev 22:17, John 4:14, John 6:55, Song 5:1
“You are the salt of the earth.” — Matt 5:13 NET
The lasting.—You have been born anew, not from perishable but from imperishable seed, through the living and enduring word of God.—“The one who believes in me will live even if he dies.”—“They … are sons of God, since they are sons of the resurrection.”—The immortal God.
Now if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, this person does not belong to him. But if Christ is in you, your body is dead because of sin, but the Spirit is your life because of righteousness. Moreover if the Spirit of the one who raised Jesus from the dead lives in you, the one who raised Christ from the dead will also make your mortal bodies alive through his Spirit who lives in you.—What is sown is perishable, what is raised is imperishable.
“Have salt in yourselves, and be at peace with each other.”—Let no unwholesome word come out of your mouth, but only what is beneficial for the building up of the one in need, that it may give grace to those who hear.
