Paris fashion and high end water

love is a theme of popularity now 
yet before love became fashion’s new accessory 
it was God’s original style

love is not going to just show up in the fall fashion lineup

love was before the heavens were formed
love is deep and expansive 
full of real passion
love left all to save all 
love lost His life 
wrung out His blood His love

His word to drink in…

Romans 11:33 Have you ever come on anything quite like this extravagant generosity of God, this deep, deep wisdom? It’s way over our heads. We’ll never figure it out.34 Is there anyone around who can explain God? Anyone smart enough to tell him what to do?35 Anyone who has done him such a huge favor that God has to ask his advice?36 Everything comes from him; Everything happens through him; Everything ends up in him. Always glory! Always praise! Yes. Yes. Yes.

Deut. 6:5 Love God, your God, with your whole heart: love him with all that’s in you, love him with all you’ve got!
Psalm31:21 Blessed God! His love is the wonder of the world.
Psalm36:5 God’s love is meteoric, his loyalty astronomic,6 His purpose titanic, his verdicts oceanic. Yet in his largeness nothing gets lost; Not a man, not a mouse, slips through the cracks.
7 How exquisite your love, O God! How eager we are to run under your wings,8 To eat our fill at the banquet you spread as you fill our tankards with Eden spring water.9 You’re a fountain of cascading light, and you open our eyes to light.

Antipodes” water is reported to be the premier drinking water in the world.  It’s beautiful glass bottle reads at the base “drink often live well” and then also states “no refills”. 

God’s Spirit, the life giving water Jesus shared with the woman at the well in John 4 could read “drink once never thirst”…
and then rightfully claim “please note this is source water and supplies constant refilling” Attach a warning label this water will spill over onto everyone you meet with no regard to race, creed, color, economic status or nationality.

Lamentations 3:22 God’s loyal love couldn’t have run out, his merciful love couldn’t have dried up.

When we drink this life giving water of God’s Spirit we are nourished on every level- for it comes from the deepest places within God’s nature. It is the essence of all living.

Titus 3:3 It wasn’t so long ago that we ourselves were stupid and stubborn, dupes of sin, ordered every which way by our glands, going around with a chip on our shoulder, hated and hating back.4 But when God, our kind and loving Savior God, stepped in,5 he saved us from all that. It was all his doing; we had nothing to do with it. He gave us a good bath, and we came out of it new people, washed inside and out by the Holy Spirit.6 Our Savior Jesus poured out new life so generously.

John15:9 “I’ve loved you the way my Father has loved me. Make yourselves at home in my love.
1 John 4:10 This is real love—not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as a sacrifice to take away our sins.
11 Dear friends, since God loved us that much, we surely ought to love each other. 12 No one has ever seen God. But if we love each other, God lives in us, and his love is brought to full expression in us.

soul saved do pray with me 
open my heart and don’t stop there 
open my hands 
move my life with your love 
Spirit lead me where love alone can take me 
where I would not go apart from love

soul unaware of HIS love pray with me
God I need this life giving love
I will drink it in full 
till love is who I know and who I am
no more hating and being hated
redefine my life by your Son Jesus
whatever that looks like I trust it will be good
I surrender this living 
eating drinking breathing running resting creating 
the whole of my life
to your purpose and plan
