The term “living water” sounds a bit weird to the natural mind; like some sci-fi movie where the water is a life form or something. Spiritually, though, there is much significance to using these words. The Scriptures are full of references to water and living water. They are used as word pictures for us to denote the cleansing, nourishing and life sustaining effects of the power of God flowing through His servants. (John 4:14, Revelation 7:17, John 7:37)
If we truly have the “living water” of the Spirit of God inside us, then it should be spewing out and bubbling up all over…like a fresh spring. Sadly, many Christians today are just dried up old stagnant ponds! They are stodgy, legalistic prudes, full of condemnation and judgment. Don’t let that be you. Strive to be that new creature in Christ, a fountain through which He can flow His clean rivers of Living Water. He will bring refreshing freedom to all those who care to dive into those “waters” and have them flow out from them to others.
The old devil would love to build a dam around you and never let those rivers flow…reject him; knock down those dams of hatred, unforgiveness, lust, anger, dissentions, bitterness and the like. Let God clean out your dirty, garbage-filled water. Let it all be filtered through Jesus and the clean, refreshing living water of the Holy Spirit will not only cleanse and refresh you, but all those you splash it on, too. Endure the fire...it's producing pure gold!
