(John 7:37-39 CSB) On the last and most important day of the festival, Jesus stood up and cried out, “If anyone is thirsty, let him come to me and drink. (38) The one who believes in me, as the Scripture has said, will have streams of living water flow from deep within him.” (39) He said this about the Spirit. Those who believed in Jesus were going to receive the Spirit, for the Spirit had not yet been given because Jesus had not yet been glorified.
1.Jesus spoke with absolute joy
If anyone may be thirsting…. (continually), then …

(Deuteronomy 26:9 NIV) He brought us to this place and gave us this land, a land flowing with milk and honey
3.But get ready … there are also giants in the land
-Giants in the land
(Numbers 13:27-28 NIV) They gave Moses this account: “We went into the land to which you sent us, and it does flow with milk and honey! Here is its fruit. (28) But the people who live there are powerful, and the cities are fortified and very large. We even saw descendants of Anak there.
-Caleb: “Yes, and we can take them …”
(Numbers 14:7-8,24 NIV) and said to the entire Israelite assembly, “The land we passed through and explored is exceedingly good. (8) If the Lord is pleased with us, he will lead us into that land, a land flowing with milk and honey, and will give it to us. (24) But because my servant Caleb has a different spirit and follows me wholeheartedly, I will bring him into the land he went to, and his descendants will inherit it.
