We went to a nearby river to swim, and had the best time! (After I got over my squeemishness at swimming with fish right next to me. I grew up in the yuppie suburbs, you know!) There’s something exhilarating about being in the midst God’s creation. Swimming in a pool is great, but swimming in a river that God created for us is really something special.
come to the waters;
and you who have no money,
come, buy and eat!
Come, buy wine and milk
without money and without cost. Is 55:1
The best thing about going to this river is that it is free. If we don’t have money to pay for the refreshment of the pool, we can always come here. So it is with the salvation Jesus offers. It doesn’t cost money, you don’t have to be good enough. He has already accomplished it, all you have to do is accept it, and turn from yourself. Wade in to His grace, and feel the refreshment of a real relationship with God.
For the Lamb at the center of the throne will be their shepherd;
he will lead them to springs of living water.
And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes. Rev 7:17
