Do you thirst?

Hugo has an interesting post about water. So go there and read it then come back.

OK, so your back.

What I found interesting was that water seems to be, alive. It seems to interact with sound and to pick up the "vibes" around it. Being that humans are about 90% water, I wonder at the effect of our environment has on us. I also began to think and wonder about what Jesus meant about being "Living Water".Water or H2o comes in 3 forms, liquid, solid and gas. If on takes an ice cube and puts it into a pot and brings it to a boil there is a point called flash point that all three exists together as one. I think that is in a way a simplified explanation of the Trinity.

Water is essential to this planet as it sustains life that exist here on planet earth. Earth is unique as it seem to be the only planet that has it in liquid form. One would say it is the lifeblood of the planet. In the body it is essential for it to function properly. It aids in everything from digestion to reproduction to respiration. Without it one will die in a short time.

Jesus said in John 6:63, "If anyone thirsts, let him come to Me and drink." The pharisees were all in a hubbub about whether Jesus had authority and where that authority came from. Jesus was stating that water is Life and He was Life. That as water is such and intrical part of our being and existence so Jesus must be in our life. Remember, water touches and take part in every thing in our physical body, without it we die.

Without water one dies. Without Christ Jesus we will remain dead in our sins and trespasses.

Let Jesus be Living Water in your life, and let Him flow over your whole existence.

I read the post - that Hugo guy can sure write . . . and he's handsome, too! :-)

I like your comments, especially about Jesus being the Living Water. And I hadn't quite thought of water being alive . . . maybe just being . . . I don't know what a good phrase would be . . . spritually sensitive? vibrationaly influential?

In any case, I think that the idea of water being influenced by our thoughts and emotions is incredibly cool (to use a technical term) . . . and it also gives us a responsibility to remember that Jesus did tell us that even calling someone "you fool" was tantamount to murder.

Blessings & Peace,
