ARE YOU DOING YOUR PART?
I'm in Vegas to speak at a philanthropic event and I'm struck by how the arid terrain affects our bodies. ~ The desert air seems to drain every ounce of hydration in me, and, despite the good health I'm usually blessed with, if I don't have an active plan here to replace lost fluids - my good health could wither faster than the cars flying past on the Las Vegas strip. ~ I have what is 'good', but that can be lost if I am not actively moving toward what I need to survive. ~ It reminds me of our spiritual lives. ~ So often we grumble that we feel spiritually dehydrated yet are we doing our part and putting a cup to our lips? ~ Just having Jesus on the side for when we 'need' Him is not enough if we don't actively come and drink from the Water of Life. ~ Jesus describes himself as the living water to a woman he meets at the well in John 4:13-14; ~ 'Jesus said to her, “Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again. But those who drink the water I give will never be thirsty again. It becomes a fresh, bubbling spring within them, giving them eternal life"'. ~ He offers us all this life-giving water, if we will only step forward and drink. ~ Won't you do your part today?
