Living Water

livingwater

Ahhh….. water! It’s the essential liquid for all living things. Its purest form, is odorless, nearly colorless and tasteless. 60% of your body is made up of water. It’s vital, without it we perish.

Water covers 70% of our earth, but only 97% of it is undrinkable. 77% is frozen, 3% is fresh water. It’s been politically disputed, and in many places its treasured and incredibly difficult to get.

Water is the only substance that occurs naturally in three states as a solid (ice), a liquid and a gas (water vapor).

Living water is essential in my life. Without it, I perish.

In its purest form it is the Spirit that guides me. It reveals the truth, it strengthens and encourages me. It comforts me and fills me with joy.

It’s with you 100% of the time, but only if you accept Him as your Savior. It’s politically disputed, and in many places incredibly difficult to worship freely.

Living water is one of three persons; the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

13 Jesus answered, “Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again, 14 but whoever drinks the water I give them will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give them will become in them a spring of water welling up to eternal life.” John 4:13-14.

I shall never thirst again.

Fish out of water

indexThere are so many things to be thankful for every day. Thanksgiving provides us an opportunity to take a hard look at life, and all that the Lord provides for us. But how often do we give back? How often do we live the life that God wants us to live. Has life become so busy that we neglect to give thanks daily? Are we fish out of water?

Scientific studies have been conducted on what happens to a fish when it is out of water for too long. Typically the gills slowly dry up and the fish dies of suffocation. Fish can live up to 72 hours out of water, but it’s a slow death. They flip and flounder, not understanding how they got in this predicament. They are somewhere they don’t belong.

In the bible fish are a symbol of faith and abundance, particularly in reference to the biblical story of the fish and loaves in Luke 9:16. This Thanksgiving lets remember to give thanks daily. We need to be fish abundantly thriving in the living water.
