Afterward he brought me again unto the door of the house; and, behold, waters issued out from under the threshold of the house eastward: for the forefront of the house stood toward the east, and the waters came down from under from the right side of the house, at the south side of the altar. Then brought he me out of the way of the gate northward, and led me about the way without unto the utter gate by the way that looketh eastward; and, behold, there ran out waters on the right side. And when the man that had the line in his hand went forth eastward, he measured a thousand cubits, and he brought me through the waters; the waters were to the ankles. Again he measured a thousand, and brought me through the waters; the waters were to the knees. Again he measured a thousand, and brought me through; the waters were to the loins. Afterward he measured a thousand; and it was a river that I could not pass over: for the waters were risen, waters to swim in, a river that could not be passed over.(Ezekiel 47:1-5).
Today's Morsel: Ezekiel's vision of living water proceeding out of the altar and swelling lets us know that when Christ is in us, the more that goes forth from the altar out of the house of God, should create a river of living water enough to heal the land no matter where it goes. The more people in the church there are that are willing to do God's will, the deeper the river should flow. Jesus said that He would be a well of water within us. When living waters are inside of you, you have the abilities to heal others physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually everywhere you go and everyone you encounter. It all starts in the church and with you at the altar on your knees.
Sing: Drinking at the springs of living water, happy now am I, my soul, they satisfy. Drinking at the springs of living water, oh wonderful and bountiful supply.
