Deeper Insight - Yosemite Falls is truly one of the great natural wonders of the world, and millions of tourist come each year and marvel at the sight of this world famous waterfall.
Have you ever thought of why so many people love waterfalls? They always attract crowds. It doesn't matter if you are taking a photo of Vernal Falls from the footbridge, gathered at the base of Bridalveil Fall, or viewing Yosemite Falls from a pullout along the side of the road, there always seems to be a crowd of people around you. I believe that people love waterfalls and fast moving water in general, because it demonstrate both power and beauty all at the same time. But beyond this, is the fact that all living creatures are drawn to water's life giving properties.
Could this be why the Bible uses water to describe so many spiritual principles?
POWER: His voice (God's) was like the roar of rushing waters, and the land was radiant with his glory. Ezekiel 43:2b
BEAUTY: He is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither. Whatever he does prospers. Psalm 1:3
LIFE GIVING: Jesus answered, "Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again, but whoever drinks the water I give him will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life." John 4:13-14
Jesus is the living water that truly gives life, and the life that Jesus gives not only sustains us here on earth.....it sustains us for ETERNITY.
Whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said, streams of living water will flow from within him." John 7:38
May God richly bless you as you continue to travel the trails of life,
