“He who believes in Me, as the Scriptures said, ‘From his innermost being will flow rivers of living water.” John 7:37 New American Standard

The Real You …?

An old preacher said it best: “Why do you work so hard for a trickle?” Jesus wasn’t exaggerating. He said a “river of living water” would flow out of the deepest .. truest .. and most extravagantly redeemed places of your heart. There is nothing timid or reserved about this river. His life will flow out of you. You aren’t changed from the inside out to contain this river. It flows out of your heart. It is a part of everything you do and everything that you are. You’re meant to live .. to believe ..and to love with a river that carries and cleanses your whole life. Jesus invites any man or woman to a river-filled life that reaches into the driest corners .. that waters the drought dried places that we ignore or try to hide .. that brings a gladness into your life because God is your help. It is an open invitation .. open anytime .. open anywhere .. open to anyone who believes. It only takes a moment …

“There is river whose streams make glad the city of God. The holy dwelling places of the Most High. God is in the midst of her, she will not be moved. God will help her when morning dawns.” Psalm 46:4-5 New American Standard

About Ken Chester

I love seeing Christ become alive and real in someone's life. It is amazing what happens when Jesus moves in and starts to renovate a life. When I'm not riding my road bike, I am usually walking our corgi named Trinity (she came that way) and corgi-lab named Lowrider. Carolyn and I are transforming our backyard. And a book is on the way. ...Stay tuned ... Ken
