Looking for something........

Well, the heat is full force in the dry season. Here in Honduras we have only two seasons; wet and dry. We have not had any rain since the beginning of March. The grass and fields are all hard and brown and even the corn has dried up. The ground is so dry that the ants have forced their way in doors looking for the slightest drop of water on anything. We have found them in the laundry baskets, closets, cabinets, in the sinks, really EVERYWHERE. They are looking for water. I even found about 20 in a glass of water that I had beside my bed last night.  All these ants remind me of something I heard our Pastor Jeff Jones say.

He has said on many occasions that that everyone is looking for something. Everyone has a God shaped void in their life they are trying to fill. In the Bible in John 4:14 it says, "But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.  Jesus is the only living water that can satisfy our souls.  We are always going to be searching for something to satisfy us; whether it is fame, fortune, family, friends, even food. But the God's word is clear.....only Jesus can truly satisfy.

God has given us the opportunity to freely take of this gift of "living water". We only need to take of it. In John 7:37-38 the Bible says just that.  (37)- In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink. (38)-He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said , out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.

We can be satisfied.....just  like the ants who are always searching for that water to give them life....we are searching for something to give us freedom and life and satisfaction. My friend that answer today is Jesus. Maybe you have asked Jesus into your heart and life....but you never really grabbed the meat of his word.....and never really gave up worldly can give those over to HIM and He alone can satisfy.

You may be reading this today and you never put your faith and trust in Jesus is your day my friend. You to can have a new life you can partake in LIVING WATER. In Revelation 22:17 says " And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. and let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.

You can have it....its's yours for the just have to recognize that you are a sinner, that Jesus died and rose again, He paid the payment for our sins, and repent and confess with your mouth....and you shall be saved. Turn from your old ways and let HIM start anew in YOU.
