Rivers of Living Water

John 7:37-52

John wrote this gospel so that we would believe Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and have life in His name. (John 20:31) In this passage Jesus calls us to believe in Him and His promise that “Whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said, ‘Out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.’” Jesus was talking about the work of the Holy Spirit in our lives.
