Everybody loves waterfalls but probably for a few different reasons. There’s the sound, the beauty, the size, it’s effect on the rocks, or maybe the pool it creates at the bottom. For me, it’s the never-ending-ness of the water and it’s flowing. In college, I used to go to Dicks Creek and sit for hours, amazed that the water just kept coming and coming. My great-grandfather was baptized there, in the waterfall, as a member of Mt. Pisgah Church, located just before the falls. That same waterfall provided water for my great-grandfather’s faith and my own.
16 “It is I, Jesus, who sent my angel to you with this testimony for the churches. I am the root and the descendant of David, the bright morning star.”
17 The Spirit and the bride say, “Come.”
And let everyone who hears say, “Come.”
And let everyone who is thirsty come.
Let anyone who wishes take the water of life as a gift. —Revelation 22
When you feel down or depressed, guilty or alone, remember that the love of God is never-ending. Let the waterfall be a faith-giving reminder that God is always there, giving of himself and his love. That flowing water is a gift to you, one you’ve been invited by Jesus to receive. I hope you have taken it or will, because those who drink the living water will never be thirsty. Let God be your ever-flowing-fountain of grace.
14 but those who drink of the water that I will give them will never be thirsty. The water that I will give will become in them a spring of water gushing up to eternal life. —John 4
