Ho, every one that thirsts, come you to the waters, and he that has no money; come you, buy, and eat…
In a man spiritually athirst there are seven qualities answerable to those in a man naturally athirst.
2. Exquisite sense — a painful sense.
3. Peculiar cares and thoughts. All a man's thoughts, in such a condition, are for water to cool and refresh him (Acts 2:37; Acts 16:30).
4. Impatience (Exodus 17:3).
5. Vehemeney of desire.
6. Diligent endeavour.
7. Constant languishing. Delay doth but increase the thirst the more. Nothing will put an end to spiritual thirst but Jesus Christ.
(O. Sedgwick, B. D.)
