Sermons about Thirsty
Today we are looking at a very short saying from Jesus while he was on the cross: “I am thirsty.” What seems like a simple request is actually a phrase that is packed with so much theology, history and meaning that once uncovered, we can clearly see how passionate Jesus was to fulfil his mission here on earth. I hope you are as intrigued and moved as I have been as we study this passage together today.

Everyone is thirsty, but not everyone knows it. Jesus is the only thing that can satisfy.
On this last and most important day of the festival, Jesus called out to anyone who was "thirsty". While appealing to the nostalgia of the time in the wilderness, Jesus pointed the people to the coming Spirit . . . a torrent flowing from deep with the believer.
Listen as Pastor Tal talks about the importance of focusing our efforts at Christmas around celebrating the one whose birthday it truly is, Jesus.
Guest teacher James Hoxworth explores Psalm 63 and helps us understand how true satisfaction can only be found in Jesus Christ.
At its core, prayer is an outlet for the passion and praise that flow from a worshipful heart.
Today we will focus on verse 3 of of Ephesians 1, but we will be looking at it through the lens of verses 3 through 14. You see in the original Greek that this fourteen verses was not broken up into multiple verses, sentences or any natural grammatical breaks … it was one long run-on sentence. It's a beautiful run-on sentence about God that Paul wrote in great excitement and worship. He is writing this in a dirty Roman prison, and yet the description of God and the gospel came flowing off his pen in one run on sentence and led him to jump into doxology, praise and thanksgiving. My hope is that as we break down this verse today we will have a glimpse of what Paul glimpsed: a glimpse of the magnitude, character and glory of our God.
thirsty for the river of life.
Most of us, at one time or another, have been tempted to fall into the attitude of "half-heartedness." We are constantly pressured by society and our own laziness, to do just enough to get by. We feel complacent and content when things go smoothly, and we forget about the fire and sense of urgency that Jesus exhibited while he was on the earth. We forget that he calls us to have the same desire to go "ALL IN" that he had. This series, based on text messaging, calls both Christians and non-Christians alike, to be completely sold out to the purposes and plan of Jesus Christ. Join us this week as we work to evalute and correct our personal life goals and desires to line up with what Christ has in mind for us.
To know and understand the greatest message, you and I must ask ourselves an even deeper question. What is mankind’s greatest need? In other words, if you had an audience of the entire world listening or watching and you had the forum to say whatever you wanted and know people were truly listening, what message would you give, that you’d want people to know and understand?
