Thirst is that feeling of needing or wanting to drink something. As a matter of fact, when you’re thirsty, you need to drink something, either water or some liquid that’ll refresh you very quickly.

Bible says, He that believes in me shall never thirst. That’s found in John 6:35.

“And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life. He that cometh to me shall never hunger. And he that believeth in me shall never thirst.”

So, when you believe him, you get to that position where you never need or want anything desperately. Because, all your needs and your wants will be met supernaturally. Not that you’ll suddenly become the owner of all properties in the world, but you get to that position where you have the feeling that O, you have all that you need, because you have Jesus.

Because it is he who has Jesus that has everything. People who have every other thing and do not have Jesus, still have a vacuum in their hearts. There’s this space that is unfilled. But when you have Jesus, even when you do not have all of those things. You have everyone, because you already have the one who owns everything.

Satisfaction is a feeling. It comes not as a result of what you have , but as a result of the feeling that you have. And you have that feeling in Jesus

Thank you very much. Welcome to Lifeclass, welcome to Elapino. Thank you for following us all through till this series. This is the 26th lesson in our series, Come, Drink. If any man thirst, let him come unto me and drink – John 7:37

We have been looking at this series, sub-series by sub-series. In the last sub-series, we had 3 straight lessons that looked at being carefree but not careless, not giving place to the devil.

In this new sub-series, we’re switching onto the second part of the Jesus Statement in John 7:37-38

[37]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.

But He did not stop at verse 37, He continued in verse 38

[38]He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.

The point is: when you come unto him to drink, the first thing we see evidently that’ll happen in your life is that out of your belly shall flow rivers of living water. We’re looking today at what ‘believing’ will do for you. “He that believeth on me, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.”

But how did we link this to the issue of thirst? In John 4:14, talking about the episode of Jesus Christ and the Samaritan Woman, Bible says:

[14]But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.

Compare that with John 7:38. He that believes in me, out of his bellies shall flow rivers of living waters.

This first point we’re making here is that when you believe, you thirst no more.

Believe and you’ll never thirst.

I mean, the first thing your faith produces in you is that feeling of “I have everything”. That feeling of “I am made”, “It is settled”. That’s the same statement Jesus made when He breathed his last breath on the cross. He said, “It is finished”. When Jesus was going to die on the cross, He knew that we will believe, so the last feeling he had is the same feeling that we also now have when we believe. He said it is finished. When He said it is finished, remember, He also said “I thirst”

He was thirsty, so that we will not thirst. He said It is finished. When you say, something is finished, it means, it is done. So when the Bible says in John 4:14: Whoever shall drink the water I shall give him shall never thirst, but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water that springs up into eternal life.

Let’s even check out that scripture. In John 19:28-30

At First, He said, I thirst, then he said, it is finished. I think we need to follow this closely.

John 19:28-30
[28]After this, Jesus knew that all things were now accomplished, that the scripture might be fulfilled, saith, I thirst.

[29]Now there was a vessel full of vinegar: and they filled a sponge with vinegar, and put it upon hyssop, and put it to his mouth.

[30]When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost.

Thirst is that feeling that you have when you need something. That feeling that you have when you need to drink some liquid. You feel like something might happen if you don’t get that water to drink.

I defined thirst as any need, whereby not getting might lead to dryness, sickness or death. Because when you’re thirsty for too long, and you don’t have water for too long, you may not be able to survive it. Jesus Christ, understands that fact, in John 19:28-30,

The feeling Jesus Christ has here is the feeling that everything is done. Yet, He said “I thirst”, because He wanted to finish for us in advance, what we will later come to face.

[29]Now there was a vessel full of vinegar: and they filled a sponge with vinegar, and put it upon a hyssop, and put it to his mouth.

That’s a very rough way to attend to one who is thirsty. They know He was thirsty and He needs liquid. But the liquid they gave Him here is not one that refreshes. But He took it on our behalf. He took that bitterness and dryness, and eventually death on our behalf. Remember that’s exactly what thirst solves. Jesus Christ needed water, but he was given a bitter liquid. He took that which we deserve so we get that which He wants us to get. He took our place!

[30]When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost.

So Our Lord Jesus is saying, I have finished the deal. So you now see that when He was saying in John 4:14 that whoever drinks of His own water shall never thirst, He’s saying “drink from me, because I have been thirsty and I finished the deal. Being thirsty means needing something. But I was thirsty and yet I said it is finished, meaning that I have done all and perfected it. I have perfected the work so that you would not need anything.”

Hello friends, the feeling that Jesus gives you is the feeling that you have everything you need. When you have Jesus, you have everything. So that every other thing you need, you already have the one who can give you everything, living in you.

So, Jesus’ gesture means I have answered everything you have have as prayer points. I have met all your needs.

The Bible says He that believes in me, shall never thirst. So, when you believe in Jesus, you have been saved from dryness, from sickness, from death, when you believe in him, you will never thirst, because the water that He’ll give you shall flow in you unto everlasting life.

Remember that this thirst we’re talking about here, Jesus Christ Himself felt that thirst first. He said, I am thirsty. He has been thirsty so that we will not be thirsty. He has finished it, so that the feeling of needing to drink something is already accomplished in us. When you believe, you have all your needs met. Now, you may not have all the things you want immediately, but lets ask, what do we get from material possessions? Satisfaction right? Yet we usually don’t have that satisfaction, no matter what we have. But Jesus is saying the Joy of salvation I will give you quenches all feelings of need, because it contains everything.

Because you know that the one you have owns all things. When you have someone who owns all the banks in the world, it then means you have access to all the money in the banks. No wonder the Bible says He will supply our needs according to His riches in glory (Phil 4:19). Remember he also said that he owns all the cattle upon a thousand hills (Psalms 50:10).

He’s not only talking about materials, but all needs shall be met. He that believes in me shall never thirst. It means those who believe in him will never be desperate for material possession.

You know my own definition of thirst is that it’s any need whereby, not getting it might lead you to dryness. Because that is what thirst leads you to. Prolonged thirst without water can actually lead to death. But Jesus had died that death on our behalf. So all you need to do, is to believe.

QUESTION: DO YOU BELIEVE?

Because, he that believes in me shall never thirst. I hope you got this explanation today. Thank you for attending the class

Father, we thank you for this class. We will never thirst, because we believe you have been thirsty so that we will not be thirsty. You said “I thirst” and you were given that which is not even refreshing, so that we will drink that which is refreshing (Acts 3:19).

Father we bless your name and give you praise because we own all things that you have, so we do not worry. Thank you Lord Jesus. We pray in Jesus Name, Amen.

But then, there’s this point I’d like you to know, if you’re here and you do not have Jesus. Jesus Christ said “I thirst” , so that we will not thirst. Now, if you do not have Jesus, you don’t have that guarantee. So you need to come to Jesus today. You need to accept him as your Lord and saviour. Even if you’re in Jesus and you’re no more sure about your salvation, or you’re feeling deprived of His life, you don’t need to, you have the one who owns the world. Perhaps you want to rededicate your life to him.

Please come close, say Lord Jesus, I come to you today and accept you as my Lord and Saviour. I rededicate my life to You. I know that you have been thirsty so that I will not be thirsty. My name is written in the book of Life. Thank you Jesus. I repent of my sins and I forsake them. I accept you as my Lord and saviour. Henceforth, I will not thirst anymore. Hallelujah. In Jesus name we have prayed. Amen. Congratulations !

That’s it, we’ve started another sub-series. He that believes shall never thirst. We meet again next time by God grace, Amen.
