Even fresh water can become stagnant over time. You can be filled and refilled daily as you come to the throne of grace. But many have become lazy and only come when they feel the need or when they can be bothered. This, my friends, can become a blockage which allows the pool of your life to become stagnant, standing water with no movement. As you allow this to become the norm in your life and even your church life, you will slowly become stagnant yourself, going to church will become a chore, praying or reading the living word will become something you do occasionally. Speaking to me will be a byword only done when you need something, or want me to do something for you, or your family. Stagnant Christians are all about self.
Wake up! And be filled everyday by my life giving water, drink afresh and taste the cool clear waters of salvation. Know the power that engulfs every part of you, sense and know there is no place that the water of life cannot penetrate and fill. Each new day be refilled and bring that freshness back into your own life and the lives of your family and friends.
Watch as your church life begins again to burn with the fire of Holy Spirit, as you are daily filled with the fuel to keep your spiritual life moving forward in the flow of the river of life. Keep your eyes fixed upon me every second of every day as I do for you. Read the living word and know that my heart is poured out for you as a love offering. Come drink from my cup and let us dance together in the refreshing rain.
(NIV) John 4: 13-14
Jesus answered, “Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again, but whoever drinks the water I give them will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give them will become in them a spring of water welling up to eternal life.”
(NIV) Matthew 5: 5-7
Blessed are the meek,
for they will inherit the earth.
Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness,
for they will be filled.
Blessed are the merciful,
for they will be shown mercy.
(NIV) Revelation 7: 16-17
‘Never again will they hunger;
never again will they thirst.
The sun will not beat down on them,’
nor any scorching heat.
For the Lamb at the center of the throne
will be their shepherd;
‘he will lead them to springs of living water.’
‘And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.
