Living Water

Posted on August 21, 2010 at 12:14 PM

Much of the country is walking around spiritually dehydrated.  More troubling is the fact that when we are spiritually dehydrated, we forget where to turn.


The answer is simple: Drink Living Water!


Drinking Water


In our day-to-day lives it is important that we drink plenty of water every day.  It is recommended that we drink about eight 8 oz.  cups (about 2 liters) of water every day.  Water is your body's principal chemical component and makes up about 60 percent of your body weight.  Every system in your body depends on water.  For example, water flushes toxins out of vital organs, carries nutrients to your cells and provides a moist environment for ear, nose and throat tissues.


Our bodies are made of about 60% water so I think everyone knows the importance of drinking water every day.  We all know that without sufficient water in our bodies we would die.  We need water to live.


What about another kind of water?  What about water that has long term life changing effects with benefits far too many to describe in this writing?  What about water that without it, we will surely die?  What about Living Water?

The Fountain of Youth, Health, and Everything Else that's Good

Just as drinking H2O water is necessary for the proper digestion and absorption of food we eat, drinking Living Water is necessary for your body to digest and absorb God's Word.  And when it comes to digesting God's Word, it's just not happening without Living Water.


If you are water deficient and dehydrated your blood is somewhat thicker and your heart has to work harder to circulate the blood through your body.  If you're spiritually dehydrated, your spiritual blood is literally thicker, and your body has to work much harder to cause it to circulate.  As a result, you feel spiritually fatigued, and tired.


Living Water - The Miracle Worker


There is nothing as pure as Living Water.  Living water is pure and free of any and all contaminants, and is truly a "wonder drug." A steady dose of Living Water will:

  • Improve Your Energy and Attitude
  • Help Remove Toxins & Waste Products from your body
  • Help You Lose Weight (Burdens of sin)
  • Reduce Headaches and Dizziness (caused by worry, stress, etc)
  • Allow for proper Digestion (understanding God's word)

Drinking Living Water is Heart-Healthy


Drinking Living Water will change a hardened heart to a more caring and compassionate heart.


Drinking Water and Weight Loss


Living Water is a natural appetite suppressant (helps to suppress ideas of the world), so developing a good Living Water drinking habit can be a long-term aid in achieving and maintaining a healthy weight (freedom from the weight of sin). 


It's important to remember that when the body is spiritually dehydrated, sin cannot be easily metabolized (changed).  This means that it's harder to resist and get rid of sinful habits when you don't drink your Living Water. 


Who Can Benefit From A Water Regimen?  Everyone .  .  .  including YOU! 


Drinking Living Water reduces cardiovascular stress.


Living Water is also an important "healing tool".  Living Water flushes impurities out of the spiritual system.


Even mild spiritual dehydration makes you more susceptible to the viruses of sin.  Living Water is a powerful weapon in the war against sin.  Living Water helps to recover more quickly.


Tips for Drinking Living Water


I know how hard it can be to remember to drink enough Living Water every day, but I also know how hard it can be to bounce back from the effects of being even mildly spiritually dehydrated.  So I'd like to share a few easy tips to help you reach your "water mark" every day:


Get a head start on your daily Living Water requirements by drinking a glass of Living Water first thing in the morning.


Don't wait until you're spiritually thirsty to have a drink - you are already spiritually dehydrated if you feel thirsty.


Set a timer to remind yourself to establish a habit of drinking Living Water and keep a bottle of water (your Bible) near you at all times.

Remember, Living Water is every bit as important to your living as H2O water is if not more so.  Be sure to drink 6-8 eight ounce glasses of water each day to maintain proper physical hydration, and as much Living Water each day as required to maintain proper spiritual hydration.

I read my Bible every day, usually in the morning. If I can't read it in the morning I do it as soon as I can. I can really feel the difference when I don't read the Bible, I feel crummy. Now with your site I can do more, thanks.
