Ezekiel 47:1-48:35, 29:17-30:19
You remember the story of Moses and the Israelites who, when dying of thirst in the desert, were saved when water came rushing out of a rock. When Jesus met the woman at the well he told her that if she drank the Living Water she would never thirst again.
Here in Ezekiel’s vision we see water again as an example of God’s provision. The man who took Ezekiel through this vision told about the water that flows into the sea and makes the salt water fresh.
How has God’s Presence in your life – in mine- changed us? Do we still thirst for worldly pleasure and gain? Or have we allowed Jesus to fill and satisfy every longing?
Do we still hold on to the behaviors of our past or have we allowed God to transform us into something sweet and useful for the kingdom? God has the power to change even the saltiest among us.
As you go to church today, I pray you will go knowing you are worshiping the Living Water. May he fill you to overflowing and cause you to bear fruit.
And may you never thirst again for anything other than more of him!
