Episode Info: Tony Funderburk - Music Producer, Author, Singer Songwriter, Podcaster in Colorado Springs What can living water do? Imagine, for a moment, you’ve just crossed a long, hot, dry desert. You’ve probably watched a movie about the old West where some cowboys found themselves in that predicament. Right? OK, put yourself in their place. Throat parched. Lips cracked. Face sunburned. And arms practically scorched. But somehow you make it across. Crawling the last mile, but you make it. And you fall, face down, in the sand. Almost within arms reach of a small oasis. Then, suddenly, a blurry, shadowed figure lifts you up and offers you…living water. Huh? What kind of water…lives? I don’t really remember the first time I read the passage in John where Jesus talks about living water. But I do remember how vivid it was (and IS) to me. And there’s a passage in Isaiah with a a great word-picture description of it: “For I will pour water on him who is thirsty, And floods on the dry ground; I will pour My Spirit on your descendants, And My blessing on your offspring; They will spring up among the grass, Like willows by the watercourses.” When you wanna grow some plants or livestock…or you wanna wet your whistle…get a cool glass of water. But when you wanna feel like a bright sparkling fountain is flowing up in you, ask Jesus to give you His water. Living Water No poetic words of wit Ever could accomplish it. No fine brushstrokes ever could Paint a picture half as good. No books published have, or will, Ever totally fulfill All your thirsty heart desires. Living water quenches fires. And no song can quite compare With what’s waiting for us there. No creation ever can Manifest a better plan For repairing broken souls As decisions take their tolls. Grace completes what law requires. Living water quenches fires. How can water live, you ask. Well, it takes a special flask. One made from untarnished clay Glazed in such a perfect way As to never fall or break, Made for someone else’s sake. Holding flames your mind acquires, Living water quenches fires. © 2020 Tony Funderburk And this special water is still another example of how life has Rhyme and Reason because God made you.
