Living water of Holy Spirit

We "are chosen according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, by the sanctifying work of the Spirit, that you may obey Jesus Christ and be sprinkled by His blood" (1Pe 1:1-2). Jesus is "the mediator of a new covenant, and to the sprinkled blood" (Heb 12:24). What else participates in sanctification? Jesus instructed, "'Sanctify them in the truth; Your word is truth'" (Jn 17:17). We are saved "through sanctification by the Spirit and faith in the truth" (2Th 2:13). Jesus said that you "'may receive forgiveness of sins and an inheritance among those who have been sanctified by faith in Me'" (Ac 26:18). "It is sanctified by means of the word of God and prayer" (1Ti 4:5).

Paul prayed that his "offering of the Gentiles may become acceptable, sancified by the Holy Spirit" (Ro 15:16). "The God of peace [will] sanctify you entirely" (1Th 5:23) for it is "He who sanctifies" (Heb 2:11). God said, "'I am the Lord who sanctifies Israel'" (Eze 37:28). It is "by the sanctifying work of the Spirit" (1Pe 1:2). Jesus said, "'He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, 'From his innermost being will flow rivers of living water.''But this He spoke of the Spirit" (Jn 7:38-39). He told the woman of Samaria, "'If you knew the gift of God . . . He would have given you living water'" (4:10). Furthermore, "'The water I will give him will become in him a well of water springing up to eternal life'" (:14). Ezekiel prophesied, "'I will sprinkle clean water on you, and you will be clean'" (Eze 36:25). It says in the Law "'he shall wash his clothes and bathe his body in running water and shall become clean'" (Lev 15:13). Zecharaiah prophesied, "'In that day a fountain will be opened for the house of David and for the inhabitants of Jerusalem, for sin and for impurity'" (Zec 13:1). He is "the fountain of living waters" (Jer 2:13) "and in that day living waters will flow out of Jerusalem" (Zec 14:8). But "those who turn away on earth will be written down, because they have forsaken the fountain of living water" (Jer 17:13). Also, "he who rejects this is not rejecting man but the God who gives His Holy Spirit to you" (1Th 4:18). "Every living creature . . . where the river goes, will live" (Eze 47:9). "But its swamps and marshes will not become fresh; they will be left for salt" (:11).
