Letting the Living Water Flow

Genesis 7:11 speaks of the "fountains of the great deep broken up." We have to keep digging in order to find the fountain that is beneath the surface. Below the fountain is a spring. But the spring cannot well up into a fountain unless the earth above it is broken up. God strengthens the fountains of the deep (Pro verbs 8:28), and we are filled with the Word of God as we internalize more and more doctrine.

To the woman at the well, Jesus said, "The water that I shall give will be a well of water springing up into everlasting life" (see John 4:14). Also, in John 7:38-39, Jesus said, "He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water. (But this spake he of the Spirit, which they that believe on him should receive: for the Holy [Spirit] was not yet given; because that Jesus was not yet glorified)."

Purpose to honor others. Submit to their portions and let the life of Jesus Christ flow through you and out of you. And if your heart is broken, God heals the brokenhearted (Psalm 147:3). Be a broken vessel. Be broken as a husband, a wife, a friend. Be a broken servant, a broken soul winner, a broken prayer warrior. Let the Cross of Calvary do its effective work in your heart. Nothing works like Calvary.
