[17] The Spirit and the Bride say, “Come.” And let the one who hears say, “Come.” And let the one who is thirsty come; let the one who desires take the water of life without price.
(Revelation 22:17, ESV)

[46] Nathanael said to him, “Can anything good come out of Nazareth?” Philip said to him, “Come and see.”
(John 1:46, ESV)

Recently, I was helping a friend move some of his things from his old house to his new house. Anytime I go out for a significant period of time, whether it’s to work hard or just to go shopping, I always bring my water bottle. I wouldn’t say that I drink a lot of water, but I can’t go very long without needing some.

On my way back home, I realized that I didn’t have my water bottle. I wondered if I should turn around and go back and get it. Then I thought to myself, “Well, maybe I’ll get it sometime, maybe I won’t. I have a lot of other water bottles that I can use. So, no big deal!“

As I was filling up a water bottle this morning for the day, I was reminded of what God says about water. I thought I remembered, but when I looked in the Bible, I found that God says dozens of things about water. But what was God saying to me today?

Before I even looked in the Bible, I remembered that Jesus had said to the woman at the well that He would give her ‘living water’. Wow! His water truly brings life. Even, water that once you drink it, you won’t have to drink again!

But that wasn’t what God wanted to say to me this morning. He brought me to the scripture in Revelation. I thought, “Surely, Jesus is the one who is encouraging us to come to get the living water.” But I guess I didn’t remember that very well, because it says ‘the Spirit and the Bride’ says come.

Of course, God’s Holy Spirit is the one who is really doing all the work. But we, as the Bride of Christ are also admonished to call people to Him - to the One who gives ‘living water’.

We all should be ready to share what God has done for us, and what He can do for our friends and neighbors as well. But sometimes we don’t need a sermon, we just need a general appeal like, “Come and see.”
