|John 7:37-39 |
37 Now on the last day, that great day of the Feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, "If any man thirsts, let him come to me, and drink. [Come — not to sect services, not to prayer meetings, not to altar calls — but come directly to him, by silently waiting on him, listening for his voiced commands and teachings].
38 He who believes on me, as the scripture has said, 'out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.'" [When you have crucified your selfish, sinful nature on the inward cross of self-denial, a fountain springs up in your inner being, which is the superior life of God flowing in you.]
39 (But he spoke this of the Spirit, which those who believe [depend on, trust, obey] on him would receive. The Holy Spirit had not yet been given because Jesus had not yet been glorified.)
