We were designed and created to have the life of God flowing through us.
- We see God breathing into man the breath of life – God’s life into mankind. Gen. 2:7
- Jesus offers abundant life. John 10:10
- It is the Spirit who gives life. John 6:63
We were designed and created for our lives to be powered by God’s life. Consider how poorly your automobile will operate with just one gallon of water in your gas tank. Your life “runs” even more poorly when your life tank has even a drop of non-God life in it.
Do you find John 7:38 to be true of your life today? “Whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said, “Out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.”
Listen, in Shawn Johnson’s story, for the moment where the living water began to flow. “In that instant I felt the entire world lifted off of my shoulders. In that one instance I knew it was all going to be ok.”
Living water flows from the heart of the one who is hearing Father God’s communication.
Jesus reveals that his words are spirit and life. John 6:63
Notice the many different components to God’s communication in Psalm 119:57-64.
- Words. 57
- Promise. Vs. 58
- Testimonies. Vs. 59
- Commandments. Vs. 60
- Law. Vs. 61
- Righteous rules. 62
- Precepts. Vs. 63
- Statutes. 64
Embracing God’s communication is life-giving (Proverbs 4:20-23) because God and His communications are alive (Hebrews 4:12).
