When the eldest servant of Abraham, who was on a mission to find a wife for his master’s son, Isaac, saw Rebekah, the Bible says that he ran to meet her and asked for a little water to drink. What is of note, is the hastiness in which the servant reacts, to fulfill his master’s mission. He did not wait or walk, but instead ran.
Points to ponder:
The Holy Spirit of God, who is on God’s mission to convict the world of sin (our sin), God’s righteousness (which is imputed on us when we believe in Jesus Christ his son as the only means of Salvation), and judgment (of the devil and his followers) (John 16:8-11) runs to meet with the Church (the woman betrothed to Jesus Christ) (Revelation 19). So the questions to the Church are: First, do we quench the Holy Spirit of God, not his convicting fire, but his thirst? and second, in like manner, are we, the Church running for God, our Master’s mission? Think about it.
Genesis 24:17 (KJV)
17 And the servant ran to meet her, and said, Let me, I pray thee, drink a little water of thy pitcher.
