Waters of Refreshment



Water is a primary subject of the Bible. From the opening verses of Genesis to the final pages of Revelation, water is used to illustrate the life-giving, renewing, dynamic, and cleansing aspects of spiritual life. Rituals of purification outlined specific methods of using water to cleanse (running water, fresh water, etc.). Still waters were a symbol of the peace and calm found in the care of God. Might waves and thundering flood waters portrayed the forces that could not stand before the love and forgiveness of God. The depths of the seas became bottomless accepting the sins God had forgiven. The desert lands brought to reality the urgency and need for fresh, cool water just as the parched soul longs for relationship with God.
