Experience the Refreshment of Jesus

“Jesus answered and said to her, ‘ Everyone who drinks of this water will thirst again; but whoever drinks of the water that I will give him shall never thirst; but the water that I will give him will become in him a well of water springing up to eternal life.’” John 4:13-14

On a hot desert day outside of Phoenix, a few teens came across a bubbling, fresh spring of water. It was such refreshment for three thirsty teens. Years later, they went back to that area, surprised to find that same fresh bubbling spring which provided the same refreshment. Like that bubbling spring, Jesus doesn’t offer us life in Him that is a stagnant pool or a polluted well that dries up. The opportunity to know Him and spend time with Him is for today and tomorrow. You may have experienced personal relationships that ended, but there is no end to a relationship with Jesus.  Come to the spring and drink of His life today.

What dry parts of your life need the refreshment of Jesus today?

Boldness in Christ

“...in whom we have boldness and access with confidence through our faith in him.” Ephesians 3:12

“My dad is stronger than your dad!” Children who say this believe with all their heart they have access to something to which no other child has access. They say it with a bold confidence, daring anyone to prove otherwise. 

Similarly, the kind of boldness Paul is talking about here is an unreserved, fearless freedom to speak about the plan of Christ. That plan, as explained in his letter to the Ephesians, is that both Jews and “the Gentiles are fellow heirs, members of the same body, and partakers of the promise in Christ Jesus through the gospel.” (v. 6). 

The plan is that we all have been given access to God through Christ! That is indeed good news! 

Are you bold about embracing the access you have to God because of Jesus?
