What’s Flowing Out?

Whoever believes in me, as Scripture has said, rivers of living water will flow from within them. John 7:35

Last week we toured some of the Disney resorts and I was most intrigued by this mountain stream that actually has a beginning in the lobby of the hotel. Unseen pumps are continually drawing the water from somewhere hidden to our eyes and from there it spills beautifully down the rocks and out into the lake below.

As a part-time writer, and a chaplain; I am often focused on sharing the message of God’s love. But on days when it feels as if the well is running dry, I need to remind myself that only what is flowing in; is what will be flowing out. Unless I am connected to what God has to say to me in the here and now, I will not have a living message to share with others. Today as each of us begins our journey, it would be good to remember  the privilege that Jesus gives us to come and drink. Unlike Disney’s beautiful albeit man-made river, His living water has its source hidden in heaven and flowing fresh for us all to receive.

My wife and I serve as members of a worship team at a multicultural church. Our members are from Brazil, Nepal and the U.S.. Because of the many languages and cultures in our local body we face unique challenges, such as how many songs will we do in English today? What new songs can we use in either language that are simple enough for the people to sing. The songs, the devotions and insights here are a small portion of some of the ways God is leading us as we push towards the goal. I pray that these will be both a blessing and an encouragement for those of you who may pass by Praise 2 Worship.
