Today’s Text: John 7:38 KJV “He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.”
Sin gave birth to death which is a separation from God the Father. This resulted in heartaches, barrenness, drought and confusion. When the Lord made His World, he designed it in such a way that every creature took it’s source of life from Him. Even in the creation of man as seen in Genesis 2:7, He breathed into the clay structure He had formed from the earth before man came into existence. Therefore Sin interrupted the flow of the divine life in creation. The fall resulted in man making a choice of desperation over prosperity and peace. In the world today, the effects of the fall can be felt and seen everywhere. Wickedness abounds hence sin is on the loose sending many into chaos and eventually to eternal damnation. It doesn’t have to be this way.
The solution to the sin problem is Jesus Christ. When the Son of God walked the earth, He was the very embodiment of that divine life. In John 5:26 the bible says the same life that is in the Father was in the Son of God as well. John 1:4 says in Him was life and that life was the light of human kind. That life whose flow was cut short by sin, finally walked on the earth in God’s Holy Son. Therefore we can see that anyone who came to Him and believed i.e connected to that Life received the solution to all their problems. That life healed bodies as can be seen in the healing of the leper in Mark 1:40-43. The life went out of Jesus and those dried, patched and diseased limbs were completely restored. That same life entered the tomb of Lazarus and brought him back from the dead as seen in John 11:39-44.
Child of God, when we believed we received the same life into our spirits. We became reconnected to God the Father. Our spirits were brought to life. Not only that, God the Father who is the source of that life came to dwell in us by His Holy Spirit as seen in today’s scripture. The believer therefore is the habitation of the divine life now. We can have the same impact that Christ had when He walked on the earth because we too have the same life as seen in 1 John 5:11-12. The world is in need of saving, healing and deliverance. We are the solution to these problems because we now possess that life. We must therefore never stop preaching, praying or sharing the love of God with the World. It is the only way they will come into Contact with the divine life of God for complete restoration. Shalom!!!
Remain Blessed in Jesus’ name.
