Water of Life

May 20

Daily Bible Reading: John 7:32 – 53

Verse of the Day: John 7:37 – “Now on the last day, the great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto me and drink.”

On each day of this feast, the people came with Palm branches and marched around the great Altar. A priest would bring a pitcher of water from the Pool of Siloam and pour it on the altar as an offering. It was to commemorate the water flowing from the rock when Moses struck it in the wilderness. On the last day, the people would march around the altar 7 times to commemorate what happened at Jericho.

Many believe that it was at the precise moment that the priest was pouring the water on the altar that Jesus’ voice rang out with the words in our verse today. Jesus is the One who provides for the spiritual thirst of man, and He provides abundantly.

Prayer: Jesus, today I come to You as the provider of the Living Water. You give me daily water from Your Word, and You live in me eternally providing for my thirst. I praise You for Your provision and care. Amen.
