Anyone

John 7

 

Anyone covers a lot of people.  It covered His brothers – they were there.  Among the crowds were those who thought He was a good man, while others thought He was a deceiver and still others even thought He was demon-possessed.  Some thought He was a prophet while others thought He was the Christ. 

 

To all these different people with all their different beliefs, Jesus stands and addresses them.  With a loud voice, speaking so that all could hear, He said, ‘If anyone is thirsty, let him come to me and drink’.

 

Anyone included His brothers.  It included, not only those who thought He was a good man, but even those who thought He was a deceiver or that He was demon-possessed.  It included those who thought He was a prophet and even those who thought He was the Christ.

 

To a people who were divided in their opinions of Him, to all of them – to anyone – He invites to come and drink.  Until you come and drink, all you can do is speculate about who He is.  Even if you get it right, it is still just speculation until you come and drink.

For What It’s Worth

 

There’s something happening here.

What it is ain’t exactly clear.

His truth, He’s begun to declare –

telling me that I’ve got to beware.

 

I think it’s time we stop, children, what’s that sound?

Everybody look what’s going down.

 

There’s battle lines bein’ drawn.

It’s time for right to stand against wrong.

We’ve got to renew our minds;

there’s too much resistance for these times.

 

I think it’s time we stop, hey, what’s that sound?

Everybody look what’s going down.

 

What a field-day we must meet.

Restraint’s been too little to speak.

This light too needful to hide.

His truth we have on our side.

 

It’s time we stop, hey, what’s that sound?

Everybody look what’s going down.

 

The love of God strikes deep.

Into your life if you seek.

This truth He wants to proclaim.

To those who will hear, He knows you’ll not be the same.

 

We better stop, hey, hear that sound.

Everybody look what’s going down.

 

Stop, hey, hear that sound.

Everybody look what’s going down.

Stop, now, hear that sound.

Everybody look what’s going down.

Stop, children, hear that sound.

Everybody look what’s going down.
