If you weren’t able to join us online for this week’s Pause, we hope you’ll take some time to reflect on the theme and Scripture passages we used.

  • Take a moment to settle in and be comfortable.
  • Say a short prayer acknowledging God’s presence with you and that He will speak to you through His Word.
  • Read each Scripture passage once or twice.
  • Pause after each passage for two minutes.
  • What is Jesus saying to you?
  • After the last passage, say a short prayer thanking God for His Word and for the privilege of having rested in His presence.

Is Anyone Thirsty?

Isaiah 55: 1, 2 (NIV)
“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.”

– If I am thirsty I can come to him –

John 7: 37, 38 (TNIV)
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. Whoever believes in me, as Scripture has said, rivers of living water will flow from within them.”

– Living water will flow –

John 4:10 (NIV)
Jesus answered her, “If you knew the gift of God and who it is that asks you for a drink, you would have asked him and he would have given you living water.”

Psalm 63:1 (Good News Translation)
“God, you are my God, and I long for you. My whole being desires you; like a dry, worn-out, and waterless land, my soul is thirsty for you.”
