Water of Life

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)

  1. I would love to be an explorer of the deep GW. Water is in all of life.
    Even our bodies are mostly water. Living water is the fountain of youth. …Out of our innermost being … When God takes up residence in us. What a great and wonderful mystery

  2. Thank you so much for sharing this video GW! My girls and I curled up on the sofa after supper to watch it together. (Unfortunately an issue with the car kept my husband from joining us but he did stop to watch some snippets as he came in and out of the house). So often in watching nature documentaries with the kids we have to dialogue the naturalist worldview that has been presented. Not that such a dialogue is a bad thing. It helps develop their critical thinking skills and be discerning in what they accept as truths. BUT, it was so very nice to sit back and enjoy a documentary that gave glory where glory is due- to our Creator. We all agreed we will watch more of the videos produced by The Riot and the Dance.

    1. So glad you and your family liked it, Beth! I agree. So wonderful to see the Creator gets His rightful due. And I didn’t feel the need to keep correcting the narrator. I sent it to members of my family. They gave it the same kudos. I will be looking forward to more from The Riot and the Dance.
