What are you thirsty for?


What are you thirsty for?

ONCE, when I was traveling, I stopped in at an American Airlines Admiral’s Club to wait for a flight. It was one of the bigger clubs where they have hostesses come around and ask patrons if they would like something to drink. So the hostess came around and said “Sir, may I get you something to drink?” I said, “Yes. I want something to drink.” The hostess brought me a ginger ale. She also brought me a dish full of snacks. No, I did not order a dish full of snacks. I did not request snacks. I did not intend to pay for snacks. But this dish of snacks was free. It was part of a planned evil. She brought me this dish of snacks because it is full of salt. The goal of her bringing me the salty snacks was to get me to order another ginger ale. The goal of the salt was to create thirst, so I’d keep ordering and keep spending money. We are the salt of the earth. The idea is that our presence in the world will create spiritual thirst so that we can offer people the living water—Jesus, the Christ, the Son of God.1052

Will one drink do the job

For He has satisfied the thirsty soul,

And the hungry soul He has filled with what is good.

‘For I will pour out water on the thirsty land

And streams on the dry ground;

I will pour out My Spirit on your offspring

And My blessing on your descendants;

Only God has the power to quench true thirst

He changes rivers into a wilderness

And springs of water into a thirsty ground;

When young people start out in the unskilled labor work force and they have not learned the blessing of God, they may transition from one job to another in search of favorable benefits and schedule.

God’s has the power of phenomena

Now Elisha said to the king of Israel, “What do I have to do with you? Go to the prophets of your father and to the prophets of your mother.” And the king of Israel said to him, “No, for the LORD has called these three kings together to give them into the hand of Moab.”

Elisha said, “As the LORD of hosts lives, before whom I stand, were it not that I regard the presence of Jehoshaphat the king of Judah, I would not look at you nor see you.

“But now bring me a minstrel.” And it came about, when the minstrel played, that the hand of the LORD came upon him.

He said, “Thus says the LORD, ‘Make this valley full of trenches.’

“For thus says the LORD, ‘You shall not see wind nor shall you see rain; yet that valley shall be filled with water, so that you shall drink, both you and your cattle and your beasts.

‘This is but a slight thing in the sight of the LORD; He will also give the Moabites into your hand.
