Rev. Ray's October 25, 2021 Devotion
October 25, 2021, 9:05 AM

"Then the angel showed me the river of the water of life, as clear as crystal, flowing from the throne of God..." Revelation 22:1

Think about the Crystal Sea that has an endless supply of love. That is the reservoir, the source of all our blessings: God is Love.

There is a river flowing from the sea. Jesus is the living water that flows from the throne of God. He is available to all who are willing to step into the water. Don't settle for knee deep or waste deep, dive in and be immersed in God's Love.

There is also a cup from which we can drink: It is our faith. Do not worry about pollution; there is none. "Taste and see, the Lord is good!" Jesus said that whoever drinks the water that He gives, will find a new source of life springing up inside them.

This too is friendship with God. I have nothing to give Him in return, but a life that seems more like a rusty cup that is unworthy to hold the Water of Life. It is the water that makes the cup (our life) clean. "Dip it in the water. It cannot hurt the Love of God. Dip it in the water and see what God's Love can do. The Gospel song says, "There is a river that flows from deep within. There is a fountain that frees the soul from sin. Come to these waters; there is a vast supply. There is a river that never shall run dry."

Grace and Peace, Rev Ray
