Drawing Out

There is a truth, and we bring in, drink in, draw in, consume, and bring inside our souls those things we are connected.

You draw water out of a well in a few ways, buckets, pipes, and what is inside is brought out, and it is available to be consumed, integrated into our being.

You draw it out you then drink it in.

This is true in the natural sense.

This is true in relation to relationships.

This is true in a spiritual sense.

If you don’t take the time to draw out of others through intentional interest, concern, and care, you will have very little inside of you for them.

Proverbs 20:5

Counsel in the heart of man is like deep water, but a man of understanding will draw it out.

Pro 18:4

The words of a man’s mouth are as deep waters, and the wellspring of wisdom as a flowing brook.

Why we don’t care more for others is found in this simple fact, we take little to no effort to demonstrate our desire to draw out of them and make that a part of our thoughts and prayers.

This is potentially never more True than in regards to our relationship, knowledge, and experience with Jesus.

Plugging in

It is so vital for us to plug in and stay connected to the life-giving source of the Spirit of God.

We do this by intentionally doing things that are overtly right, good, and holy.

God’s Word

God’s Spirit

God’s People

God’s House

You see this to be true in your home. Most of the internal and unseen conduits in the electrical systems in a home are not visible. However, the prominent and easy places to stay connected are the visible receptacles and engineering for the connectivity.

The same is true for our connection to God; connection is facilitated by being connected to the people of God and dwelling in the house of the Lord.

The scripture tells us in many places and different ways that our connectivity to Jesus is through His Body. Each member gains virtue, wisdom, and strength through other individuals of faith and faithfulness.

1 John 1:7

But if we walk in the light, as he is in the lightwe have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.

The continuing work of remission and mercy is found in my fellowship with other believers.

One of the most significant sources of inspiration of faith and insight is my connection with other men and women of God. I experience this by my faithfulness in being a part of a fellowship of faith. The other way is through personal time spent with people through various modes of communication.

I have been blessed and strengthened over the past 51 years through these methods of communication where I have drawn from the Body of Christ the water, bread, Spirit, and blood of Jesus Christ.

I will be blessed today.  

From Jesus Christ directly.

From Jesus Christ through the fellowship of people who love, talk and serve Jesus.

Drawing Out…. So that the Spirit of God can flow out.

In Him, By Him, Through Him,
