I don’t know about you when you read this Morning’s Reading, but I said “Wow!” This is a perfect example of why they called Spurgeon the “Prince of Preachers.” What a beautiful representation of the Spirit-filled, Spirit-led life in Christ. Spurgeon really tests us and causes us to ask, “Am I all-sufficiently filled and fulfilled in Christ. Is Jesus my all-in-all? This was my favorite line in the reading
The true saint is so completely satisfied with the all-sufficiency of Jesus that he thirsts no more—except it be for deeper draughts of the living fountain.
The section of Scripture from which this morning’s text is drawn, (John 4) serves to remind us that Jesus is the Refreshment of Life. I am also reminded of the Scripture in Revelation describing the future Heavenly City and the river of water flowing from the throne of Christ.
And he showed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding from the throne of God and of the Lamb. In the middle of its street, and on either side of the river, was the tree of life, which bore twelve fruits, each tree yielding its fruit every month. The leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations. And there shall be no more curse, but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it, and His servants shall serve Him. They shall see His face, and His name shall be on their foreheads. (Rev 22:1-4 NKJV)
Let us be fully satisfied and refreshed today by the person of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ! I long for the day I will see you face-to-face!
