During my formative years, The Bellamy Brothers had a huge hit with a song entitled, Let Your Love Flow. It’s a catchy tune with a great hook, full of sweetness and light and, thus, it performed fairly well. It made it all the way to #1 on the charts. However, not knowing the Bellamy Brothers, I have no way of knowing their motivation behind the song.
Jesus had a very similar outlook on the Christian life when He spoke the words we find in John chapter seven:
“He who believes in Me, as the Scripture said, ‘From his innermost being will flow rivers of living water.'”
— John 7:38
Notice it says from his innermost being, and not merely, within his innermost being. As Christ-followers, we are not just reservoirs of grace storing it up for our own purposes. We are conduits of the grace of Christ designed to allow the living water to flow through us to others who thirst. Look around. The thirsty are everywhere!
So go ahead … open the valve and let the living water flow today!
