1 Peter 1:2 Chosen according to the foreknowledge of God the Father in the sanctification of the Spirit unto the obedience and sprinkling of the blood of Jesus Christ: Grace to you and peace be multiplied. [Recovery Version Bible]

Preachers often say that we are thirsty and need the living water to quench our thirst. But have you ever heard that the Holy Spirit is thirsty and needs you to quench His thirst? In Genesis 24 we see a servant who was thirsty after his long journey, and in John 4 we see a Savior who was thirsty after His tiring journey. Who was more thirsty in Genesis 24, the servant or Rebekah? The servant was. Likewise, who was more thirsty in John 4, the Lord Jesus or the Samaritan woman?…Hence, as we preach the gospel, we must tell people that the Father, Son, and Spirit are thirsty for them….Abraham’s servant eventually reached Rebekah through the satisfying water (Genesis 24:14). God’s chosen ones are the satisfying water to the Holy Spirit. Today the Holy Spirit comes to seek God’s chosen ones as Christ did at the well of Sychar (John 4:7). If anyone responds to Him and satisfies His desire, this is a sign that he is one of those chosen for Christ and that he will be gained by the Holy Spirit for Christ. (Life-Study of Genesis, ch. 61; cf. Genesis 24:11-14, 24; John 4:6-7, 10; 1 Peter 1:2; Luke 15:8-10; John 16:8-11)
