How's The water In Your Well?

dotOur Thoughts:

When I was a young child, the only way we could have water was to have a well dug. I remember our well vividly! It was right outside the backdoor, under a shed. We drew well water to drink, and to cook. It was the clearest and cleanest water in town, I kid you not! It was what is called 'freestone' well water. It didn't have the inpurities that you find in most water. But, you paid the price for this water with having too little. Mother also had to use it for washing clothes. There was never enough, so we had to carry water from my Daddy's sister's home down the street.

My husband and I dug a well on our property, when we first moved out in the country. We didn't have 'city water', at the time. We were blessed with a plentiful supply of water, but it was without perfection. It contained iron, and it caused our commode tanks to become rust colored, changed the look of the inside of the dishwasher and our washing machine. We finally had to get a filter to filter out the rust. That went on until they brought 'city water' to our part of the country.

Water can be pure or it can become polluted. The Word of God is like water to our bodies, and it is pure and TRUTH. John 17:17 says 'thy word is truth'. We are to live by the commandments of God. The Old Testament is the New Testament concealed and the New Testament is the Old Testament revealed. God gave us a new covenant by which to live when Christ was resurrected. The old covenant was given to Abraham by promises and we are heirs to those promises. But the new covenant has better promises and God said he would put his laws in our hearts and write them on our minds! So the Word that you read and speak gets into your 'veins', flowing through every part of your body, filling it with 'purified water' - the Word - that works for you! It flows through your being, giving you the Power of God's Word. Unlike the well water, it never has to have a filter, never has to be purified! It is the TRUTH!

dotGod's Thoughts:

Ephesians 5:26 That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word,
Hebrews 10:22 Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water.

dotOur Cup:

Heavenly Father, we know that your Word is Truth. Help us to continually be in the Word, to have our bodies 'washed' with the Word daily! We give you thanks and praise due your precious name. We give you praise! In Jesus name, I pray. Amen.
