THIS SERIES: LIVING IN THE OVERFLOW
While nobody would choose cistern water over spring water to quench thirst, if there was a choice, often spiritually that is what happens: we try to live by our own efforts, our own resources, rather than from the fresh and flowing ‘living water’.
and have dug their own cisterns, broken cisterns that cannot hold water.
Let anyone who is thirsty come to me and drink.
Whoever believes in me, as Scripture has said, rivers of living water will flow from within them.’
By this He meant the Spirit, whom those who believed in Him were later to receive.
Up to that time the Spirit had not been given, since Jesus had not yet been glorified
baptism in the Spirit that was prophesied by John.
No longer limited to a few chosen ones, the Lord’s intention was to pour out the Spirit on all flesh, young and old, men and women, rich and poor, slave and free [Joel 2:28-29]. The Holy Spirit’s life in us was to be like rivers flowing out. Waters of Life, watering not just our own lives but the surrounding ‘ground’.
This promise is for you. If you want to live inside-out, if you want that life-giving river to flow out through your life, the Overflowing with Life page of this website will show you how.
