Wouldn’t it be awesome to get a personal invitation to the White House or a personal invitation from the Queen of England to Buckingham Palace? Well, in our scripture passage from the Bible for today we read about an even better invitation – one from our Lord and King, Jesus Christ.
This is even more special than an invitation from the American elite or British royalty. For it is an invitation to an eternal life of forgiveness, full and free. But to receive the blessing of this invitation, it must be received. So, answer the invitation of God – the most important R.S.V.P you will ever make is to say “yes” to the invitation of Jesus.
(John 7:37-39) 37 On the last and greatest day of the festival, Jesus stood and said in a loud voice, “Let anyone who is thirsty come to me and drink. 38 Whoever believes in me, as Scripture has said, rivers of living water will flow from within them.” 39 By this he meant the Spirit, whom those who believed in him were later to receive. Up to that time the Spirit had not been given, since Jesus had not yet been glorified.
