WFW: Refreshed from THE Well?

I learned a lot about Jesus being the LIVING WATER last year as I studied the book of John.  It is so interesting how God's Word, and the knowledge of Him, just layers itself.  One great truth, atop another....and another....

Jesus answered and said to her, "If you knew the gift of God, and who it is who says to you, 'Give Me a drink,' you would have asked Him, and He would have given you living water."  John 4:10
 
Then Jesus declared, "I am the bread of life. He who comes to me will never go hungry, and he who believes in me will never be thirsty.  John 6:35

Now on the last day, the great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried out, saying, "If anyone is thirsty, let him come to Me and drink.  John 7:37

I have been challenged this week...that true peace and unity result in joyous worship.  God's love and the indwelling of the refreshing Holy Spirit keep us safe from burn out.  It keeps our purposes true and pure.  Perhaps, like me, you need to examine yourself...your attitudes and purposes...in the places you serve.  Home, church, work, play...?

We need to have a desire to quench our thirst with HIS WORD.  For God's own children, it's an ability we already have through God's grace.   How great a salvation!!

If you are feeling burned out...GO TO THE WELL!!

The harder we follow after Him, the greater the blessings!!

There are very few  rules, in fact the beauty of this ministry is the creative expression that God reveals Himself thorough.  We marvel at the creativity that participants post with this meme. We encourage the ” post behind the picture,” or the reflections that many of the participants share. We ask that  non-biblical resources not be used.

It is our desire to share the Bible unmarred by human resources (word wise)! We love quotes! ( some of us have quite a collection of our own! However this is not a forum for them.

WFW is not about books, authors, artists.. it’s about God and HIS WORD ONLY. WFW is about celebrating the gift of creativity through God’s Word.

I LOVE the book of John. It's just beautiful from start to finish.

Sometimes I'm guilty of running to every other place for a drink, but the Living Well is the only one that satisfies and doesn't leave you with a bellyache!

I so needed this reminder today, friend. I didn't wake up for my quiet time and I felt thirsty all day.

What a beautiful image - I think it's going on my fridge...:)
