Guatemala Photo Of The Day – Thirsty?

“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.  Why spend money on what is not bread, and your labor on what does not satisfy?  Listen, listen to me, and eat what is good, and you will delight in the richest of fare.”  Isaiah 55:1-2

Rosita is offering me a drink.

She must have known I was thirsty.

This picture represents so many thoughts about who we came to serve, and where we find fulfillment when we are thirsty.  Jesus said in Matthew 25-31-46:

“Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world.  For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’

“Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink?  When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you?  When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’

“The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’

We are all thirsting for lasting refreshment and fulfillment.

This photo reminds me that this thirst is fulfilled when I serve others, because when I serve others I am serving Jesus, and He is the one who provides lasting refreshment and fulfillment from my thirst that needs to be quenched.

Why do you thirst?

Come find lasting water which will cause you to thirst no more.  Come find Jesus by serving others.
