Biblical faith is the aqueduct that brings the Living Water into the City of Light.
Good thing to know when the river runs dry. The lush lawn turns to sand. Broken dreams turn to dust. Laughter turns to tears. The well springs a sewage leak. You know. The normal, and not so normal, occurrences of life.
Faith, biblical faith, comes by the Faith-Giver.
Do you know faith has to be exercised? Used. Opened. Drawn out. If you never need it you’ll never know it. And you will die of thirst. If you get thirsty you’re going to need a drink of cold, clear water and only then will you know the difference between sand and water. Living water is better when you know you need it, and without it you will die. Faith is like that. Like a flat spare tire, a flat faith, unneeded, won’t make itself known until it’s too late.
Like I said in the beginning. Good thing to know when the river runs dry. If you have the River of Life, Faith unto Life and the Author of life, Christ Jesus, the river will never run dry again. Check out Hebrews 11:1– again.
Oh! And when you get there? Tell ’em g.w. sent you. He knows my name — long time now.
