On a recent trip to the mountains, we saw several waterfalls and rushing creeks. Don't you just love the sound of flowing water? It brings peace to the soul and beauty to the eyes. I could sit for hours and watch for hours the water that flows with seemingly no ending.
Here is John 7:38 from the Amplified Bible: "He who believes in Me [who cleaves to and trusts in and relies on Me] as the Scripture has said, From his innermost being shall flow [continuously] springs and rivers of living water."
I want to be a Christian with a continuous flow of Living Water. Not stale or stagnant, but vibrant and having a freshness and newness of the Lord's presence always flowing from my mouth, heart and actions.
But as with any cycle, there must be a starting point or place to take in. This is where reading God's Word, prayer and surrounding myself with godly things comes in. To give out, it must be first taken in, meditated upon and acted on by sharing in words and actions. By continually keeping near to the Lord, He will fill us with His Living Water that can flow out of our inner most being. May we be encouraged to tap into our never ending source of Living Water and allow Him to flow freely through our lives.
