Day 26: Be Filled


I had a dream last night,

a very good dream.

Someone asked me the question,

"What is the ABUNDANT LIFE".

And I answered,

by showing a bowl of water.

(yes, I even dream in analogies).

I was confused,

as I held up the bowl of water

as I had no idea why that was the answer.

And then I asked

JESUS.

And oh how it became so clear.

JESUS is THE LIVING WATER.

JESUS is THE ABUNDANT LIFE.

HE IS EVERYTHING.

There is nothing else that you

can put in a glass of water to make it water.

It is WATER.

We need to drink WATER

to quench the thirst that our bodies crave,

or

dehydration will come upon us.

And the same with JESUS,

because HE is SOURCE of LIVING WATER.

We need HIM

to not only SURVIVE,

but to

never be THIRSTY again,

as HE told the

woman at the WELL~

“If you knew the gift of GOD and who it is that asks you for a drink, you would have asked HIM and HE

would have given you LIVING WATER....

Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again,

but whoever drinks the water I give them will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give them

will become in them a spring of water welling up to eternal life”

(John 4:10-15).

To LIVE THE ABUNDANT LIFE in the

HERE & NOW

is to keep drinking from

HIS WELL of LIVING WATER

that never stops

GIVING what our heart, minds, and souls need,

because

our

hearts,

minds,

and souls

get polluted so easily

as long as we have breath in our lungs,

because

we are so

human.

Therefore,

as long as we walk this earth

we need

TO PUT OFF

the flesh.

Picture a bowl of dirty water.

But what if you kept adding

CLEAN WATER

to it,

wouldn't it eventually

become a bowl of CLEAN WATER?

That is how we are to live.

Our hearts, minds, and souls

so easily get

polluted from the impurities that sin leaves behind,

as we live in a polluted world.

Even though IN CHRIST

our SIN issue has been covered,

as we are 100% FORGIVEN

which connects us back to

GOD,

we are to LIVE as CLEAN.

So how do we LIVE?

As a

FOLLOWER OF CHRIST

who

continually

DRINKS OF HIS LIVING WATER

that

fills our cups

with

HIS PEACE

HIS JOY

HIS LOVE

HIS HOPE

HIS FORGIVENESS,

which displaces all the pollutants

that strive

to get into our WELLS.

Oh

LIVE THE ABUNDANT LIFE~

"Since you have heard about JESUS

and have learned the truth that comes from HIM,

throw off your old sinful nature and your former way of life,

which is corrupted by lust and deception.

Instead, let the SPIRIT renew your thoughts and attitudes.

Put on your new nature,

created to be like GOD~

truly righteous and holy"

( Ephesians 4:21-24).

Now I know that my dream really wasn't a dream,

as it was my JESUS whispering to me

to remind me

that HE IS THE LIVING WATER

and I am to continuously

guard this

GIFT

and

continually

put off the old self

and put on the new self

and

"COME TO THE WELL"

(listen to the song below)
