Which Water are You Drinking

Be appalled at this, you heavens, and shudder with great horror,” declares the Lord. “My people have committed two sins: They have forsaken me, the spring of living water, and have dug their own cisterns, broken cisterns that cannot hold water. Jeremiah 2:12-13 New International Version                                                                           

The spring of living water is the Holy Spirit.                                                

He brings renewed life, strength and healing into our spiritual lives. Because of this we live a life of peace, contentment and joy.                   

Yes we go through trials and tribulations, sorrows and snares but we have the Holy Spirit to comfort, strengthen and heal us through out them all.                                                                                                     

The Holy Spirit blesses us with wisdom for the true source of the meaning of live which blesses us with purpose in life.               

                                                     JESUS IS THE LIVING WATER                     

He fills us with peace and contentment with the knowledge that we are cared for by the Supreme God whom loves us so very much.                                                                    

The broken cisterns is fleshly desires and the water they cannot hold is spiritual satisfaction which is only accomplished by a loving relationship with Jehovah.

This leads to many addictions such as alcoholism, materialism (the buy, buy, buy syndrome. Yes you feel happy when you buy it but then it quickly fades and you are left enslaved to the banks and credit cards to pay off the debt).                                                                                       

Sexual promiscuously (which leads to sexual diseases and baby murder- abortion, broken marriages and numerous other maladies).                           

Drug abuse which is a living hell and slowly drags you into an eternal one. 

 Can any of you add to the list?                                                                       

These are all sad substitutes for the only thing that brings meaning, love, peace and joy to our lives.                                                                           

Of course true Christians know the only source for drinking pure water is the Holy Spirit which lives in us every day of our lives on this planet.                                                                                                             

So which water are you drinking?                                                              

Now here is the kicker: Do you notice this is aimed at Jehovahs people? This is not for those of the world but regarding those who call themselves Christians.                                                                                     

They have walked away from Jehovahs blessing to satisfy the lust of the world which they should know is filthy.                                                             

Have you been feeling that Jehovah is far from you, that there is no satisfaction in your walk with Christ?                                                          

Perhaps you need to go to Jehovah in prayer to convict you where you have strayed and the steps necessary to renew you love affair with Him.            

Prayer: Please  KalEl (voice of God) bless me to always be attentive to Your loving voice and to be obedient unto it. In so doing I will be blessed with a never ending supply of Your life giving water every moment of every day. I humbly request this in the name of He who is the true living water Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.

How Respectful Are You?

SHARING

Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God Philippians 4:6 New King James Version                                                                              

I know many people who never say please and thank you. They believe it is below them to use their proper manners. They either demand what they want (you owe me) or they try to lie, connive, deceive and manipulate to get what they want. These people are very arrogant, rude, selfish and self centered.

No matter how many times I have tried to patiently teach them to use their manners; they just look at me with a look of contempt.

As a consequence I inform them that if they want something from me they will be respectful or shut their mouths because I do not waste my time with low life’s like them.

They are furious and leave me alone.

That is good because they are nothing but trouble anyway.

The only time they want anything to do with me is when they want something from me. They do not say please or thank you, do not appreciate the help and give nothing in return.                                                

I always make it a point to say please and thank you no matter how big the grace that is given to me. I have done it so often it has become second nature to me.                                                                                                               

As a consequence many times people go out of their way to help me because the positive affirmation makes them feel good and makes me feel good. It is a win, win situation.                                                                    

Using your manners (saying please and thank) you is a visible sign of respect and maturity. Joseph- Anthony: Green                                               

Now think of this: how often do you say please and thank you to our Beloved Father in Heaven for all the gifts, great and small, He blesses you with every day? How often do you say it through out the day and not just in morning or evening prayers? The more you grateful you are the more you see His wonderful love gifts to you through out the day. This brings us ever closer together which is the greatest blessing of all.

“Life without thankfulness is devoid of love and passion.”  John Henry Jowett

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Chanan (God is gracious) for blessing me to emulate You in my heart, words and actions towards You first and others second. The gift You bless me with in return in a heart filled with gratitude, joy and peace. I exalt You in the name of he who constantly praised You during His earthly ministry Jesus Christ. Amen

May the sunshine of Jesus sweet love bless you today and every day

How Much Do You Bear Each Other?

I, therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you to walk worthy of the calling with which you were called, with all lowliness and gentleness, with longsuffering, bearing with one another in love,endevouring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. Ephesians 4:1-3

FROM THE HEART

How much lowliness do you exhibit in your life?

Or, do you tend to look down on others because of their physical looks, how much they make or if they have a different accent than you(they need not be from a different country but from a different part of your own country)?

Is your speech gentle and graceful or are you as course as sandpaper? Do you make rude comments or gossip about others?
If someone has an annoying habit do you bark at them or pray for meekness and tolerance? Do you work to keep harmony or do you delight in starting fights and finding fault?

This need not be just in your Christian community.

As Christians we are what the world sees as Christ. How are you doing in your family, at school and at work?

It is difficult if not impossible for us to accomplish these things.

Then how are we to succeed?

We are to humbly ask the Holy Spirit to bless us with the demeanor of Christ so as to glorify Him and draw others to Him.

Prayer: Please Jehovah Chanan (God is gracious) bless me with the attributes of Your most holy son so as to exhibit to others Your love and grace in all my words and in all my actions. I humbly request this in the name of the most gracious of all Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.
