By Dave Henning / December 29, 2022

” ‘Come to me and drink,’ [Jesus] invites.  Not sip . . . taste . . .  sample.  But gulp.  Long, refreshing swallows of him.  Consume Christ.  To drink Jesus is to receive him into the driest parts of our lives.  As we do, ‘rivers of living water will flow out.’ “- Max Lucado “On […]
