John 7:37-39
Revised Standard Version (RSV)

Rivers of Living Water
37 On the last day of the feast, the great day, Jesus stood up and proclaimed, “If any one thirst, let him come to me and drink. 38 He who believes in me, as the scripture has said, ‘Out of his heart shall flow rivers of living water.’” 39 Now this he said about the Spirit, which those who believed in him were to receive; for as yet the Spirit had not been given, because Jesus was not yet glorified.

These are my thoughts please share yours.
37 On the greatest day of the feast this would mean they day most people would be there would have been the last day. Giving something to drink is a sign of being a servant. Jesus spoke so hear could be heard by the numbers of people.
38 Whoever believes in Christ as scripture says, in a day where people have bending scripture to make people happy, our belief in the truth of scripture is given by God and imparted as part of His perfect plan. Water is a source for life and is one of those most important things for survivial.
39 The Spirit is to flow out of us. If someone saw someone who had water flowing out of them they would notice and maybe even ask them about it, this is the way it should be when we are given the Holy Spirit, people should see and want to ask. Those who believe receive the Spirit. Up until Penticost John the baptist was the only one to have the Spirit in him. Jesus is the Spirit as flesh. Many people of those days may have been moved by the Spirit but none at this time had the Holy Spirit in them.
