God's Well of Living Water

The Sea of Galilee is a fresh water lake in Northern Israel

Living Water

It’s estimated our bodies are 80% fluid.  Apart from brains, bones, and a few organs, we’re walking water balloons!

Stop drinking water and see what happens.  Coherent thoughts vanish.  Skin gets clammy, and vital organs wrinkle.

Eyes need fluid to cry.  Your mouth needs moisture to swallow and your joints need fluid to stay lubricated.  Your body needs water the same way tires need air!

God wired you with thirst–a “low-fluid indicator.”  Let your fluid level grow low, and watch the signals flare.  Dry mouth.  Achy head.   Weak knees.  Deprive your body of fluid and your body will tell you.  Deprive your soul of spiritual water, and your soul will tell you.

Dehydrated hearts send desperate messages:  Snarling tempers.  Waves of worry.

Jesus said, “if anyone thirsts let him come to me and drink.  He who believes in me, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water! John 4:14″

Come Thirsty


W - Christ's WORK on the cross and in the tomb that 
pardons our sin and  defeats our death.

E - His ENERGY, that allows us to do all things
through the one who gives us strength.

L - His LORDSHIP, we belong to him
and he looks out for us.

L - His LOVE, and the confidence that nothing
can separate us from him.
