God is an ocean of love and mercy from which Jesus, His mighty river of hope, springs forth and sheds His forgiveness upon us all. We are merely insignificant tributaries that must constantly be fed the word of God. His voice settles into our ears so we may become richer through His word.
And like a tributary that receives nourishment from the great ocean, we too, must receive nourishment from God, through His son, Jesus Christ. Allow our love to overflow from the many blessings He has bestowed upon us. We must not allow the creek of salvation to run dry. We must forever thirst for the power of knowledge that will in turn become our own stepping stone to redemption through Jesus Christ.
Timely post Emma! I was recently listening to a teaching to day on Eph 5:18 where the person was making the point that we are to 'continually' be filled with the Holy Spirit.ReplyDelete
Eph 5:18 And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit;
I can't go long without being 'filled' again.
What is interesting he went on to the parable of the ten virgins with the emphasis of how some of the virgins let their oil run out.
And then your post echoing what the spirit of God was saying earlier in the day.
God is awesome like that!
