There is a drink out there that is bigger, stronger and better than alcohol. It is more refreshing, more relaxing, more revitalizing. It is not an escape from reality it – is a transformation of reality. It never disappoints and it always satisfies. It has the side effects of joy, hope, peace and better relationships. What is it? It is the Spirit of God. Accessible through seeking God in prayer and studying His word. Next time you come home from a long day of work or are wrapping up a hectic week spend some time drinking in God’s Spirit instead. It is so much better.
14But whoever takes a drink of the water that I will give him shall never, no never, be thirsty any more. But the water that I will give him shall become a spring of water welling up (flowing, bubbling) [continually] within him unto (into, for) eternal life.
37Now on the final and most important day of the Feast, Jesus stood, and He cried in a loud voice, If any man is thirsty, let him come to Me and drink! 38He who believes in Me [who cleaves to and trusts in and relies on Me] as the Scripture has said, From his innermost being shall flow [continuously] springs and rivers of living water.
