Water Drops

21 10 2013

Are you a bath or a shower person? If you got to choose where to relax and wash away the day’s stress and grime, which one would you choose? There is nothing quite like the luxury of a warm bath or shower to wash away the stress and grit of the day. The gentle streams of water renew us. Water is refreshing. It cools, cleans, hydrates, and has a quiet power that we often take for granted. Running water, over time, has the strength to erode mountains and reshape the landscape. We live on a blue planet. A good percentage of our own bodies are made up of water. It is one of the most basic necessities of life, and every drop should point us to Jesus.

Physical water has the power to help us understand the Living Water that flows only from Christ. A dry mouth is meant to awaken our thirst for Him. Our deep sigh when we sink into the bathtub or stand under the shower jet is designed to immerse our souls more deeply in the ocean of His delight. God wants us to live lives drenched in His grace, saturated with His presence, and soaked in His purpose.

My Jesus Resolution today is to see Jesus in every drop of water. When I take a shower, I am going to let His grace cascade over me. When I wash my hands, I am going to marvel at the way His blood keeps me clean. When I scrub dishes, I am going to be thankful for the way that He makes the pieces of my life new and useful for His glory. When I brush my teeth, drink a cold glass of water, or turn on the washing machine, I am going to pause and soak in the picture of Jesus that God plants in every drop of water.
