Your body is 80 percent fluid.  Stop drinking and see what happens.  Coherent thoughts vanish, skin grows clammy, and vital organs wrinkle.

Deprive your heart of spiritual water, and your dehydrated heart will send desperate messages—hopelessness, loneliness, resentment.  Where do you find water for your soul?  Jesus said, “If anyone thirsts, let him come to Me and drink.  He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water” (John 7:37-38).

Let Christ be the water of your soul.  Church activities might hide a thirst, but only Christ quenches it. Drink him.  Receive Christ’s work on the cross, the energy of his Spirit, his lordship over your life, his unending, unfailing love.  Drink deeply and often.  And out of you will flow rivers of living water.
