Rivers Of Living Water
Wall Art Poster Print
Beautiful wall art about the rivers of living water, as promised by the Lord Jesus Christ. During a religious feast the Lord cried out: ‘If anyone thirsts, let him come to Me and drink. He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.” But this He spoke concerning the Spirit, whom those believing in Him would receive.’ (John 7:37-39)
Why did Jesus Christ say this at a religious feast? After all, didn’t all these people who attended the feast already drink from the living waters of God? They were very religious, weren’t they? The key here is to understand that we can be very religious and still dry as a desert. Our own religious activities are no guarantee that we are actually drinking the living waters of the living God. He says in His Word:
“For My people have committed two evils:
They have forsaken Me, the fountain of living waters,
And hewn themselves cisterns—broken cisterns that can hold no water.”
What does God mean with these words? Israel was always very religious! How then did they forsake Him, the fountain of living water? Let’s look at the leaders of Israel, the scribes and pharisees. They were extremely religious. One would say nobody was as devoted to God as they were. Yet Jesus Christ rebuked them severely, calling them snakes and vipers. Why? Because there is a huge difference between our own carnal religious activities and having a genuine personal relationship with God.
The rivers of living water come from Jesus Christ
The Lord Jesus didn’t say: ‘If anyone thirsts, let him say certain prayers, light candles, sing certain songs and attend every service.’ No. He said something very different: ‘If anyone thirsts, let him come to Me and drink.’ See what He said here? Let him come to Me and drink. This speaks of having a personal relationship with the Lord. Coming to Him and drinking. Drinking is not something you do with your mind. Drinking can’t be done while you are talking. Drinking happens when you stop talking, stop being busy, stop reasoning and simply open your mouth.
It is openly receiving the rivers of living waters from the Lord Jesus Christ Himself.
In religion we often mistake our own words, our sermons, our activities, our traditions and our programs for the presence of God. That is however bitterly wrong. It’s not about what we do, say or believe. It is about Jesus Christ. It’s about coming to Him as a little child and drinking from Him.
How do we drink from the rivers of living water?
What is drinking from Jesus? This is not something I can easily explain in words, because it is a spiritual thing. You open your innermost being to Him. You surrender all to Him. You don’t come to Him with a closed heart or a closed mind, but with hunger and thirst. You are open to receive. Then you receive the Holy Spirit. Do you get the picture? So often people reason about God all the time, but never come to Him thirsty to drink from Him.
This wal art invites you to a personal relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ. Stop talking so much,.Lay down all the reasoning. Find rest in His arms and drink from His presence. He will pour out His love into your heart. He will fill you with good things. He will open the well in your own heart, so that the rivers of living water can flow from you.
May He become the most beautiful reality for you there is.
