The Water of Life

Whoever desires, let him take the water of life freely” (Rev. 22: 17).

“Jesus says, ‘Take freely.’  He wants no payment or preparation.  He seeks no recommendation from our virtuous emotions.  If you have no good feelings, if you be but willing, you are invited; therefore come!  You have no belief and no repentance — come to Him, and He will give them to you.

Oh, how many there are who are rich in their own good works, and cannot therefore come to Christ!  ‘I will not be saved,’ they say,’in the same way as the harlot or the swearer.  What?  Go to heaven in the same way as the chimney sweep.  Is there no pathway to glory but the path which led the thief there?  I will not be saved that way.’  Such proud boasters must remain without the living water; but ‘whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.’ ”

–Charles Spurgeon

  1. Anna,this post brought back to my remembrance a discussion that was had about a year ago with an elderly gentleman who had been coming to church for several weeks.

    He sat through service after service and enjoyed the singing and the word. Yet when asked if he had ever surrendered his heart to the Lord he emphatically stated that he hadn’t and he wasn’t going to!

    I had never heard such a response from someone who faithfully attended services. How we become so numb to the pleading of the Spirit is beyond me, and I wonder if this man has crossed a point from which there is no return.

    At any rate,he is in a precarious position in regards to eternity. Rejecting the one and only way to salvation is to damn ones soul to Hell.
