Living Water – by the cup or flowing spring – Your choice

Living Water - by the cup or flowing spring - Your choice

(Watch the video of this post)

As children of God we have available “living water” to us.
Most of us do not realize what is truly available.
We think of it as a water fountain we can go to when we are thirsty,
and only get a cup or two at a time ( when the “thirst” or “need” is the greatest ).
What Jesus Christ is offering is so much more…
He wants to live IN You and THROUGH You.
And this is made possible by the Holy Spirit who is IN You.
There are a lot of scriptures on this relationship we have after we are born again,
but I just want to touch on the “offer” so you might see what you are missing in your Christian life ( walk ).
Joh 4:14  but whoever drinks of the water which I shall give him will by no means ever thirst again.
But the water which I shall give him will become in him a fountain of water springing up into eternal life.”
Rivers of Living Water
Joh 7:37  Now on the last day, the great day of the feast ( Feast of Tabernacles ),
 Jesus stood and cried out, saying, “If anyone thirsts, let him come to Me and drink.
Joh 7:38  He that believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his belly will flow rivers of living water.”
Joh 7:39  (But this He spoke concerning the Spirit, whom those believing in Him were about to receive; for the Holy Spirit was not yet given, because Jesus was not yet glorified.)
To get this Living Water flowing in your life,
you must do two simply ( but not easy ) things:
1 ) “lose your life”
by giving 100% control of your life ( your whole body ) to the Lord. Complete surrender of every aspect of your life.
2 ) “By Faith”
You need to “believe” the “truth” about your new creation / new man / and the “POWER” that is available ( already IN YOU ) to accomplish everything the Lord would like to do through you.
A Living Sacrifice
Rom 12:1  I beseech you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God to present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, pleasing to God, which is your reasonable service.
Rom 12:2  And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, in order to prove by you what is that good and pleasing and perfect will of God.
Let Christ live through you
Gal 2:20  I have been crucified with Christ, and I live;
yet no longer I, 
but Christ lives in me. 
And that life I now live in the flesh, 
I live by faith toward the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself on my behalf.
Lose your life to find it 
Mat 16:24  Then Jesus said to His disciples, If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow Me.
Mat 16:25  For whoever desires to save his life shall lose it, and whoever desires to lose his life for My sake shall find it. 
God working IN YOU
Php 2:12  Therefore, my beloved, as you have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, cultivate your own salvation with fear and trembling.
Php 2:13  For it is God who works in you both to will and to do of His good pleasure.

Saved by Grace,

Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful. 

And let us consider one another in order to stir up love and good works, 
not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some,
but exhorting one another, 

and so much the more as you see the Day approaching.

Hebrews 10:23-25
