Let us drink from the wells of living water that come from the wells of salvation of the Lord. May we in the Holy Spirit draw from the wells such health and wealth of spirit and soul that will overflow to others.
Isaiah 55:1 “Come, all you who are thirsty, come to the waters; and you who have no money, come, buy and eat! Come, buy wine and milk without money and without cost.
Isaiah 12:3 With joy you will draw water from the wells of salvation.
John 4:14 but whoever drinks the water I give him will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life.”
There is abundance of the water of life from the well of salvation, and it is for eternity, for everyone who comes in faith and the promise is, it will never run dry if we drink continually from it. And as water cleans us of all uncleanness, so the Holy Spirit will cleanse us and as we are sanctified, He will keep us whole and burn all dross away, as the Holy Spirit is also fire, speaking of purifying and warmth of comfort. Praise the Lord it is the Holy Spirit that will sustain our drinking from the wells of salvation.
We are also reminded on another occasion when the Lord spoke of “drink” and it was in relation to His cup of suffering as He instituted the Holy Communion
Luke 22:20 In the same way, after the supper he took the cup, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in my blood, which is poured out for you.
1 Corinthians 11:25 After the same manner also he took the cup, when he had supped, saying, This cup is the new testament in my blood: this do ye, as oft as ye drink it, in remembrance of me.
Matthew 26:29 But I say unto you, I will not drink henceforth of this fruit of the vine, until that day when I drink it new with you in my Father’s kingdom.
May we not neglect the Lord’s Supper or Holy Communion and drink it often with thanksgiving for the price He paid by His blood, in remembrance of Him, until we drink it anew in heaven with Him.
If we forget to observe the Lord’s Communion, we do err in disobedience to His command. How we need to be always reminded that it is His Blood that is all sufficient and the hope of seeing Him face to face.
May we be faithful to the end with this frequent reminder of Holy Communion. He knew we would be forgetful and need a reminder of His sacrifice and our wonderful hope in Him, as we proceed through this world of woe.
