This morning in Church we sang come to the water. I was thinking how many forget the importance of water.
Is God’s gift is not enough? I have had a few conversations about water lately. Water is important to our physical health if we don’t drink enough is can become a dangerous situation. But also it is essential to us as healthy God be in God’s believing people.
Water can be seen in scripture 722 times in the Bible, more often that faith, hope, prayer, and worship. Genesis 1: 2 states the earth was formless void and darkness covered the face of the deep, while a wind from God swept over the face of the waters. Water is such an essential component of like, it was created on the very first day.
Isaiah 55- Come all who are thirsty, come to the waters and you who have no money, come but and eat. Come, buy wine and milk without money and without costs. Wouldn’t it be grand if we could have this in our lives.
Water flows throughout scripture to remind us of it’s importance-both spiritually and physically. Water is the most beautiful element and rich in it’s usefulness and purifies from the filth not only from our bodies it from the soul as well. If you’ve received the grace of the spirit. Water has the power to heal, their are stories in the Bible about the Syrian was cured from his leprosy in the waters of the Jordan river.
Water has the power to purify, to provide deliverance, and it can also destroy evil and enemies as in the story of Noah and the flood.
75% of the earths surface is covered with water. Roughly 70% of an adults body is made up of water, and about 85% of the adult brain is made up of water. Water is essential to life, all all living things need water to survive. So why do we as God’s children, sometimes take this gift, His gift for granted?
Remember that His body was broken for you and water and blood poured out from Jesus’s wound.
So that water to drink from your bottle or glass. Is also that water the God created for us, He has given His life so you we might have life abundantly.
I have a good friend that wrote a song about water, God’s gift to us. “I don’t know what your drinking but, give me a pint as well.” Pure clean water.
