Water, Water Everywhere

When we swelter, we head for shelter. Wherever there’s water. Be it the windswept Pacific coast, Puget Sound’s chill, crystalline Northwest lakes, the muscular Columbia or just a sip to wet our lips.

Our great Designer chose water to be two-thirds of Earth’s ingredients. Same for our body. He drowned this globe in a universal do-over and parted the Red Sea. He turned H20 into the finest wine. His cousin baptized Him in the Jordan. He walked on Galilee and calmed its waves.  

As the mercury soars, so does our thirst for God’s perfect, sustainable resource. Speaking of heat, remember -- heaven is real … so is hell … and eternity is a long time.  

“The Lord is my Shepherd, I lack nothing. He makes me lie down in green pastures. He leads me beside quiet waters, He refreshes my soul.”  Psalm 23:1-3

“ … if anyone drinks the living water I give them, they will never be thirsty again. For when you drink the water I give you, it becomes a gushing fountain of the Holy Spirit, flooding you with endless life!” John 4:13-14

Anyone who calls upon the name of the Lord will be saved.”  Romans 10:13
