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 desires take the water of life without price. (Revelation 22:17 ESV)
The thirsty ones are the ones that will take the water of life. There is no payment, bribe or sacrifice involved. There is no trade by barter like in idol worship. He is pure and you drink Him through purity. The water of life is the manifest presence of God. We must desire and crave for this glorious manifest presence of God that gives life. Where that manifest presence is, there is life and the fullness of life
Everyone has sinned and is far away from God’s saving presence. Romans 3:29
Surely he is ready to save those who honor him, and his saving presence will remain in our land. Psalm 85:9
God’s presence is a saving, liberating presence. His Spirit gives life and where His Spirit is, there is liberty. Jesus Christ, the last Adam is the life giving Spirit. Jesus promised us abundant life and that life comes through His manifest presence. There is no other way. There is no magic, no trick, no alternative. Life comes from that glorious water of life that God promised us and we must yearn and thirst for Him.
All of us, then, reflect the glory of the Lord with uncovered faces; and that same glory, coming from the Lord, who is the Spirit, transforms us into his likeness in an ever greater degree of glory. 2 Corinthians 3:18
The Lord is waiting for the hungry and thirsty to taste Him and enjoy Him. When you taste Him who is life everyday, victory will be all you will see. In Him, there is no defeat, sickness or failure – you will know Him and the power of His resurrection. I can’t remember Jesus ever being sick. He knew the secret of the Holy Spirit very well and He wants us to know this secret as well. If God says that the abundant life is possible then it is possible. We must not doubt but believe it and pursue this holy abundant life.
When you experience the water of life on a daily basis, you will fulfill destiny like Paul because you will be led and filled with the Holy Spirit. He is the one who will teach you all things including how to pray and experience His glory. He has all the secrets to life. All we need is humility and dependence. Those who constantly desire the water of life will constantly drink and be filled.
