In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto Me, and drink. He that believeth on Me, as the Scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water. (But this spake He of the Spirit, which they that believe on Him should receive: for the Holy Ghost was not yet given; because that Jesus was not yet glorified.) Many of the people therefore, when they heard this saying, said, Of a truth this is the Prophet. Others said, This is the Christ. But some said, Shall Christ come out of Galilee? Hath not the Scripture said, That Christ cometh of the seed of David, and out of the town of Bethlehem, where David was? So there was a division among the people because of Him. (Joh 7:37-43)
Today, Jesus calls all men to make a choice. Since all are under sIn, and condemned because they have sinned against our Holy and righteous GOD, not making a choice is a choice to reject Christ. Almost persuaded is still lost in sin and separated from GOD. Surrendering to Jesus Christ is repentance and faith in His finished and perfect work on the Cross of Calvary means getting a new life, not GOD in your life, and the indwelling Spirit to make you born again, not of the flesh, but from above.
GOD's people, who are secure in Him, are to live a life surrendered to Him and allow His power and presence to flow through them. We are not to quench or grieve the Spirit by our overt acts or our disobedience to His will. We are His ambassadors, and are to represent Him, with the water of life flowing from us to all those around us. We are to show Christ to those who are hurting and in need, that they may see Jesus in us, the Hope of Glory. We are to love one another, and with the guidance of the Spirit grow in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ through His Word. We are to take His whole Word to this whole world, proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ to those who will hear, that those who believe the Good News and repent may have life in His Name.
For GOD is not willing that any should perish, but that all would come to repentance and the knowledge of the Truth. Jesus loves you and wants to establish a covenant relationship with you that is real and personal. Surrender to Him on His terms and He will give you a brand new life of discipleship and fellowship with Him that is abundant and everlasting. GOD calls you to trust Him and what He has already done for you to pay your sIn debt. He has provided the only way of reconciliation with GOD with forgiveness and Salvation through Jesus Christ, the Son of GOD who is GOD the Son, to give you a new life in Christ. Turn away from yourself and your sIn and turn to Him alone for eternal Life, now and always.
