The Holy Spirit part 2

Here's a quote to hold you over until I get this digest written:

"On the last day of the feast, the great day, Jesus stood up and cried out, "If anyone thirsts, let him come to me and drink. Whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said, 'Out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.'" Now this he said about the Spirit, whom those who believed in him were to receive, for as yet the Spirit had not been given, because Jesus was not yet glorified." (John 7:37-39)

"In John's record Jesus the Messiah becomes the thirsty one (cf. Jn. 19:16) under God's covenant curse (cf. Dt. 38:48), so that to those who are thirsty he may hand over his thirst-quenching Spirit (Jn. 19:30)." (Sinclair Ferguson, The Holy Spirit, pg. 67)
