This summer has been an unusually wet season in my neck of the woods, experiencing quite a few floods coming down the river. Plus, saturated ground water regurgitated back to the surface. Increasing the voluminous flow to jump its banks, wildly surging through streets of the town, forcefully creating its own level rather than seeking it. So naturally, this has caused much more of my thinking to turn to the subject of water.
I once gave a short sermon on how the Lord must love poor people because He made so many of us, “Blessed are the poor in Spirit for theirs is the Kingdom of Heaven.” It was on biblical warnings of lusting after riches and its destructive effect on a person’s spirit.
Not meaning to mix metaphors, but have you ever thought about how God must love water? Because He truly did make an incredible amount of it and mentions it in the Bible from Genesis to Revelation, both literally and metaphorically.
This relatively short video (considering the depth of subject – no pun intended), Is a beautiful sermon in itself. I hope you enjoy it.
On the last and greatest day of the festival, Jesus stood and said in a loud voice, “Let anyone who is thirsty come to me and drink. 38 Whoever believes in me, as Scripture has said, rivers of living water will flow from within them.” 39 By this he meant the Spirit, whom those who believed in him were later to receive. Up to that time the Spirit had not been given, since Jesus had not yet been glorified. John 7:37-39 (NIV)
