I was doing some yard work last week, not a good idea in 95 degree heat with the sun beating down and a boat load of humidity in the air. But who says I always use practical thinking when I start a project?
As very little time went by I noticed something trickling down my back, forehead, and other places a lady wouldn't admit to. As nature would deem it, I was sweating, not glistening, not perspiring, I was wringing wet with yucky sweat.
The sun and heat caused my body's temperature to rise to a point where it took over and started it's own air conditioning system.
When we get too hot, in order to cool our temperature down to a livable setting, our body goes into action. The sweat our pores emit actually acts as a coolant for our body. As the minimal breeze hits our wet skin it causes the evaporation of the sweat to cool our temperature down, at this point hopefully the wise will seek shelter in the air conditioning.
In this sweat we emit, are toxins, impurities if you will, that need to be expelled from our bodies. Sweating has a two fold purpose, cooling the body and expelling toxins from our body. Pretty cool, huh?
When we are done with this process we need to re-hydrate our body in order for it to function properly. That's when the jug of water comes in handy. Water, pure filtered H2O to replenish what has left our body. If we don't drink enough water we become dehydrated and our body suffers dearly. We must fill'er up or we get sick, then other issues will take over and a trip to the doctor will be in order.
There are a lot of beverages we can drink, but only clean, pure water will really restore our bodies back to prime working order. Everything else is just a copy of the original.
In a nutshell, the sun heats up our bodies, our temperature rises, we sweat out the poison that has collected in our bodies, and we must replace the toxins with water.
Where is this leading you ask??
When the Son begins to shine in us, the pureness of His being burns out the impurities we've collected throughout our life time. The breeze from the Holy Spirit causes the impurities to evaporate, they are no longer a part of us. In order to keep the toxins from rebuilding we must fill ourselves with the Water of the Word or the toxins will re-enter our body.
Eph. 5:26, Cleansing her by the washing with water through the Word.
John 7:37&38, If anyone is thirsty, let him come to Me and drink. Whoever believes in Me, as the scripture has said, streams of living water will flow from within him.
Matthew 12: 43-45, When an evil spirit comes out of a man, it goes through arid places seeking rest and does not find it. Then it says, 'I will return to the house I left.' When it arrives, it finds the house unoccupied, swept clean and put in order. Then it goes and takes with it seven others spirits more wicked than itself, and they go in and live there, And the final condition of that man is worse than the first.
Next time you're outside in the hot sun, let it be a reminder of what Jesus Son light can do for you. But make sure to wear a hat and drink plenty of Water!

I was reading in Timothy today and stumbled across an interesting statement, that so much shadows today's attitudes towards the Word that I had to share it with you.
In 2Timothy 4:2-4 Paul is telling Timothy the following, "Preach the Word, be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage - with great patience and careful instruction. For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear. They will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths."
As I read this I couldn't help but think of all the news media, politicians, educators, pastors, students, writers, actors, musicians, well you get my drift, people in all walks of life who can't tolerate the pure Gospel of Jesus Christ.
"They" have surrounded themselves with "intellects" who have twisted and desecrated the Word till it appears to them to be nothing but another fictional book to be laughed at and ridiculed. Making those whose life is directed by God's Words look like illiterate simpletons that can barely read or comprehend a more tolerant and sophisticated line of thought.
One would think Paul somehow transported himself to the 21st century and observed the world as we see it today. I'm amazed at the accuracy of his description of people surrounding themselves with "yes men", and listening only to those who's words spew out like the serpent in the Garden of Eden, enabling a twisted thought process to justify a more "tolerant" life style.
As Believers, we are charged to be prepared in season and out of season. To me that means when being a "Christian" is socially acceptable, or when the world seem to do a 180 and everything we as Believers stand on is offensive and repulsive to the socially and intellectual elite.
Can we stand committed to the Gospel of Jesus Christ when our freedoms and rights are striped away because someone is offended by the Blood of Jesus?
Is the Word in us to the overflow point that if something should happen to our Bible we can draw from the meals we've ingested and still speak God's Word allowing the infilling of the Holy Spirit to speak through us?
Are we, as Believers, really ready to face a Godless society and not compromise His Word, but exemplify it in our daily walk?
I know I personally need a lot more time on my knees seeking His face, gleaning from the insight of others and learning to hear His voice for myself so I will be prepared in season and out of season to share the Gospel.
It seems like I'm being a real doomsayer today, however I find it encouraging and exciting to know that as long as I seek Him I will find Him. To know He has a plan for me, that He has anointed me and called me and that He will finish the work He started in me. Relying on that, I know when the time comes, His Words will flow out of me like honey or fire which ever is needed at the moment and His Holy Spirit will fill me with power.
Knowing God is no respecter of persons, what He does for me He does for you. As long as we seek His face diligently He will give us everything we need to be prepared for what ever comes our way!
That to me calls for a "happy dance"!
