living water

His words are so powerful. His Salvation so wonderful. His grace so merciful.
Whoever believes in me, as Scripture has said, rivers of living water will flow from within them.” John 7:37-39
 For the Lamb at the center of the throne will be their shepherd; ‘he will lead them to springs of livingwater.’ ‘And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.’ ” Revelation 7:16-17

it's life's most basic need.

so incredibly thankful for the ministry of charity:water. for their quest to give safe drinking water to the billion people who are plagued with the consequences of drinking filthy water. is it so cool that they are giving living water in the name of Jesus?

i have a garden. and i water it with my hose. of course, i would never think of drinking nasty hose water. gah. {shudder} but it is potable water. and i spray it onto my garden, use it to play with my crazy dog who attacks sprinklers for sport, and wash my muddy shoes with it. 
drinking water. 
the same stuff that people yearn for in developing countries.
please take a few moments to watch these… you'll see the dire need for clean water and the amazing ripples of life that come from one clean source.

then watch a village come to life through the gift of water. through the organization aptly named living water.

this easter, as we consider the sacrifice, the love, the miracle, and the blessing of the gift of the Holy Spirit in us… won't you consider giving the gift of living water to others… in our daily lives, for sure… but for those in desperate need?


  1. As part of a sort of self-designed Lenten experience, I took cold showers and only drank the water I carried (to school). While this experience was spartan in its impact compared to people who do with so much less, it did make me THINK about water all week.

    I gave a donation to the listed Charity as a small blessing in recognition of the 'easy' water I'm blessing with at any moment...

  2. livingwaterinternational is a christian organization digging wells around the world. another powerful ministry; a ministry of hope.

  3. We do take many things for granted. What a wonderful project. Happy Easter.
