Water In Season and Out
I am blessed by the water of the word of God. The ability to swim year round no matter the temperature of life, relationships, or the weather. There is always shelter and safety to be found in God and his word.
In the book of Ephesians we are shown order for marriage and relationships as ordained by God and recorded in His Word. Jesus Christ literally lived it out, died once, and rose again to establish our salvation. I love the mental flesh check of "For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord the church: For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones. Ephesians 5:29,30
We would do well to remember His admonition before, after, and during the agreement of "I do."
As Christ did and does, so we are to do.
Life and our interactions with one another can leave us feeling less than freshly washed at times.
Life, people and situations can come at us with gale force. So if you are feeling unclean, less than fresh, like your drowning or in over your head.
God has word for that.
Jesus, the word made flesh. John 1:14
Ephesians 5:26,27 That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word,
That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.
