Weekly Photo Challenge: Water

Standard

This water will satisfy temporarily.

“To turn water into wine, and what is common into what is holy, is indeed the glory of Christianity.” Frederick W. Robertson

Water makes up most of our body; scientists say it is about seventy percent.  Interestingly enough, the earth is also covered mostly by water; scientists say it is about seventy to seventy-five percent.  So, it is that we don’t worry too much when we’re told not to waste water.

Water has many amazing uses:

Water cleanses: Many consider drinking water daily as a kind of therapy.  Water can cleanse our bodies on the inside and on the outside.  The woman at the well needed water.  Jesus said to her, “If you knew the gift of God and who it is that asks you for a drink, you would have asked him and he would have given you living water.” It is true that this water cleanses.

Water satisfies:  It’s amazing to think that the same water we drink today satisfied people thousands of years ago.  While we are not short of water, having water available when we need it is important.  On a hot and humid day, nothing satisfies like a cool drink of water. In John 4:14 we read, “But whoever drinks of the water that I will give him will never be thirsty again. The water that I will give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life.”

Water changes: I love to feel the smooth stones that have polished beautiful rocks.  Over time, water smooths away the rough edges.  I hope that my rough edges are being washed and changed over time.  God loves to change us with His living water.  He says in Isaiah 55:1, ”Come, all you who are thirsty, come to the waters; and you who have no money, come, buy and eat! Come, buy wine and milk without money and without cost.”

If you want to experience something unusual, come to the living water and find out how to be cleansed, satisfied, and changed.
