MATTHEW WEST-THE WONDERFUL CROSS
I’ve been reading a book called BUILT from Benny Perez and it’s about beating the odds, escaping average and keeping your fire and passion for the long term so you don’t burn out.
He says, "We can spiritually drink soda and that may satisfy us for the moment, but eventually we must have the water of God’s presence. We speak from the overflow of our heart. Our purpose as leaders cannot ever truly be fulfilled apart from Jesus. As we are regularly exposed to God’s heavenly perspective, our vision stays clear."
The point is, we can’t manufacture water. We have to abide in Christ and let his living water fill us. Think about it like a spring when we have Jesus in our heart. Jesus is naturally refilling us when we’re in his presence! It’s not refilling our tank on our own strength. It’s God’s presence that refills us.
