Heart Water

When we first believed in Jesus He gave us a new heart in fullfillment of Ezekiel's prophecy:
"Moreover, I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; and I will remove the heart of stone from your flesh and give you a heart of flesh. (Ezekiel 36:26)
Learning to live from that new heart is often a life-long journey. I often ask myself what does it look like when I live from my heart? I thought of this verse today and it became clearer.
Now on the last day, the great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried out, saying, "If anyone is thirsty, let him come to Me and drink. "He who believes in Me, as the Scripture said, 'From his innermost being will flow rivers of living water.'" But this He spoke of the Spirit, whom those who believed in Him were to receive; for the Spirit was not yet given, because Jesus was not yet glorified. (John 7:37-39)
Rivers of pure living water flowing from our innermost being - our heart. Interesting that Jesus didn't say that life flowed from God to us but from our hearts. Consider this to be a brief reminder today to live from your heart. Life will flow when you do.


  1. "I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you. . ."
    Boy, ain't that the truth!

  2. A prophesy of the river of God that fellows from the church, from our bellies:
    Ezekiel 47
