On a hot summer day there is nothing more refreshing than a tall glass of cold water, I know some would prefer tea, iced coffee or even a cold beer. However, we can all agree none of them really quenches the thirst like fresh water. Water is a very important element in sustaining life in the body. Water is inside our cells, around our cells and in our blood. It is imperative we keep our bodies hydrated at all times. When dehydration occurs we experience serious health related problems; seizures, kidney and urinary issues, and heat injury such as stroke can be caused by the body losing hydration.
We must replenish our water or fluid intake daily, our bodies will tell us when we are in need of hydration; fatigue, muscle cramping, headaches, and in some cases constipation tell us water is needed. When we really think about it everything in nature benefit from water; trees, grass, birds and other animals enjoy fresh water falling from the sky. Even the dry desert enjoys the rain from time to time. For some of us our lives have become a dry desert in need of hydration, the problems we face have drained us of all hope; we thirst for relief and renewed hope to overcome our daily plight.
A song was written that said” there is a fountain filled with blood drawn from Immanuel’s veins and sinners plunged beneath that flood lose all their guilty stains”. Jesus is the fresh water needed for all who wish to experience a bountiful life. John7:37 tells us “Jesus cried out saying, if any one thirst; let him come to me and drink.” John 4:14 tells us Jesus said “whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst, but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.” This living water is the Holy Spirit which we receive from the Father at the request of Jesus our redeemer.
This gift is granted to anyone who is willing to give their lives to Him. It is through the Holy Spirit flowing from our hearts we bring light to the dark world. His living fresh water falling on those we come in contact with brings renewed hope, love, peace, joy and forgiveness to those who are thirsty. If you find your life is becoming as dry as a desert, come to the fountain of life and drink; be revitalized by the living water, Jesus the Christ.
