Strengthen and Encourage the Brethren 11/13/11

This week’s scripture is from John:

“Jesus answered and said to her, ‘Whoever drinks of this water will thirst again, but whoever drinks of the water that I shall give him will never thirst. But the water that I shall give him will become in him a fountain of water springing up into everlasting life.’”   (John 4:13-14)

Though life might be flowing quickly past us, we can be in a dry season where the spiritual land seems parched, where nothing seems to be blooming or growing, where the wind of the Holy Spirit has become still, where we find ourselves thirsting for righteousness, and our heart cries out for wellsprings of water to flow, to give us life. Then our tears and our brokenness bring forth the living water; Jesus wells up in us like a spring of water, overflowing, refreshing, renewing us with new growth, extending our roots deeper, allowing us to reach further, and we have joy again as we bask in  the blessings of the Son of God.

May the Lord fill you with living waters and make you a fount of blessing to others.
