The Journey

Babbling Brooks (John 7:37-39)

Scripture: John 7:37-39

Recently the town I work in had a woater main break. This ment that everyone in the city had to either boil their water before they drank it or purchase drinking water. Since I work in a retail outlet that sells water, I spent some time stocking water. I am amazed at all the types of drinking water we have available: distilled, spring, and tap water (oops its labled as drinking).

Water is central to life. There are few things moreb refreshing than water. And a fresh mountan stream or a spring is about the best thing you can get.

Jesus says that out of Him living water will spring up. In Christ we are refreshed, cleansed, and restored from the inside out. To top it off it flows, the spring isn’t a stagnate pool in our lives but it flows beyond us and washes over those around us.

The question that rises in me is: are we daming up the spring or are we a babbling brook?

May the living water wash over you today!

About jwquaker

I’m sure everyone wants to know who I am…well if you are viewing this page you do. I’m Jared Warner and I am a pastor or minister recorded in the Evangelical Friends Church Mid America Yearly Meeting. To give a short introduction to the EFC-MA, it is a group of evangelical minded Friends in the Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, and Colorado. We are also a part of the larger group called Evangelical Friends International, which as the name implies is an international group of Evangelical Friends. For many outside of the Friends or Quaker traditions you may ask what a recorded minister is: the short answer is that I have demistrated gifts of ministry that our Yearly Meeting has recorded in their minutes. To translate this into other terms I am an ordained pastor, but as Friends we believe that God ordaines and mankind can only record what God has already done. More about myself: I have a degree in crop science from Fort Hays State University, and a masters degree in Christian ministry from Friends University. Both of these universities are in Kansas. I lived most of my life in Kansas on a farm in the north central area, some may say the north west. I currently live and minister in the Kansas City, MO area and am a pastor in a programed Friends Meeting called Willow Creek Friends Church.
