Yesterday I began reading a 14-day devotional on living a spirit-filled life called ‘Thirsty’. It’s really cool and I was hooked from the onset. The intro talks about humanities thirst for satisfaction in the context of Jeremiah 2:13 which says that “My people have committed two sins: They have forsaken me, the spring of living water, and have dug their own cisterns, broken cisterns that cannot hold water.”
I love this illustration of sin the author uses in comparing saltwater (the alternative) to the living water. “Saltwater looks and feels like fresh, or living, water, but if you drink it for any length of time, it kills you. A person could be stranded in the middle of the ocean floating atop a gazillion gallons of it and die of thirst. The more you drink saltwater, the thirstier you get.”
It’s really deep stuff and I’m not only looking forward to learning more about being spirit-filled and led but also knowing more about the Holy Spirit. I’ll keep you posted on how things go. Promise.
