False Saviors, Living Water

I read of a story of a plane that crashed into the ocean. A circle was formed in the middle of the ocean led by a US marine for all the survivors treading water. They did this so it will be easy for a rescue plane to spot them. Blazing hot sun. Days went by. The survivors were getting weary and thirsty. Marines were trained not to drink seawater no matter how thirsty. The US marine never did. But the other survivors were not as resolute. They drank the sea water and eventually died. When the rescue plane finally appeared, only the marine soldier and just a few were left.

What a picture of false saviors! Empty substitutes. Pain and problems leave a hole in our heart and soul. The ocean around us is a world that offers all sorts of sinful avenues of escape. The invitation is to drink the seawater of sin and not wait for the rescue of the fresh Living Water.

Leave false saviors. Let's all drink from the spring of Living Water.

"Why is my pain unending and my wound grievious and incurable? Will you be to me like a deceptive brook, like a spring that fails?" (Jeremiah 15:18)

"Come all you who are thirsty, come to the waters ... whovever drinks the water I give him will never thirst." (Isaiah 55:1; John 4:13)
