photos-of-Water-Rush-picturesWe’ve accessed the flow, the flu, the flavor and the flame, and now I hope you’ll grab your goggles and join me in the flood. I’m talking about a full-on deluge of living water flowing from our Christ-committed hearts into the dehydrated hearts around us; an intentional invitation for the thirsty to dive in, to drink of this water and to receive eternal life.

It’s the reason we’re here.

We are able to be salt and light because of the living water. Our good works and good example might do the world some good, but it’s the water He gives that brings them life. Intentional influence involves intentional evangelism and an intentional desire to see people come to Christ. There really is no more powerful influence—let that truth flood your heart and let’s go flood the world. 

“But whoever drinks of the water that I shall give him will never thirst. But the water that I shall give him will become in him a fountain of water springing up into everlasting life." John 4:14 (NKJV)
