Staying Hydrated: Jesus Is Our Poweraide
Isn't it strange how sometimes, the answer for a problem is obvious and right there at our fingertips, yet we still miss it or even intentionally ignore it? For example, studies suggest that a majority of Americans are chronically dehydrated, leading to other significant health problems. Meanwhile, 70% of the earth is covered in, you guessed it, WATER! While people in poor countries are dying due to lack of clean drinking water, we have it everywhere we turn, and we still don't take it. People drink protein shakes, coffee, energy drinks, and even alcohol all for what it does to their bodies, yet the thing they need most is also the thing they often pass up to get to those other items. In the same way, so many Christians are spiritually dehydrated. Jesus is everywhere, we can speak to Him anytime, and He speaks to us through His word and His Holy Spirit. So often, however, we pass right by Jesus in order to get to all the things that only temporarily satisfy our "thirst". Is this landing on you personally? This week at Friendship, we'll talk about the living water we find in Jesus and what it means to "stay hydrated" with Jesus. As we "Run the Race", we cannot do it without the living water continually filling us up. This message is for all of us, and you don't want to miss it!
