All Who Are Thirsty
My time with The King was so moving and precious this morning that I just had to share it. I usually share an excerpt from the devotional I read from on my FaceBook page, but there is no way I could pull just a little bit from it and post. This entire devotional reading illustrates the depth of Christ Jesus' love for mankind. I was brought to tears and repentance this morning.
John 7:37 - Now on the last day, the great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried out, saying, "If anyone is thirsty, let him come to Me and drink.
Did you see Christ's love illustrated in this? Oh how He loves us!
This morning I was reminded of His love, not only for me, but for everyone! This morning I could not hold back the tears, weeping over the condition of my own heart; the sin that is still present. I have moved an inch or two closer to the King this year, but I have far too much further to go to reach that most intimate place in Him.
I will always be in need of Him as long as I am in this mortal body on this corruptible earth.
This morning I cried to God to fill me with His love, His tenderness and His compassion. I asked for His eyes that I may see others through them. I asked for His heart that I may love with it the perfect love that casts away fears. And I asked for His tenderness that I may grow my children in His grace.
Glory be to God that His mercies are new every morning!
