Jesus say in Matthew~Freely you have received, freely give.

You can't give out what you have not received. Opening your heart to let God pour into you allows the overflow to spill out to others. We can't offer living water if we haven't drank of it ourselves. Allowing God into all areas of our life not only brings healing to us, but to others.

Jesus stood and cried out, saying, “If anyone thirsts, let him come to Me and drink. He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.”

Living, life-giving water will flow out of you. God is generous. He lavishes His love on you. He has poured out His Holy Spirit upon all who will receive it. Freely you have received, freely give.

Luke 7:47 (New Living Translation)

47 “I tell you, her sins—and they are many—have been forgiven, so she has shown me much love. But a person who is forgiven little shows only little love.”

When we receive the forgiveness of sins, we will love much! When we truly grasp and understand all that God has given us, we want everyone to know of His amazing love. When someone is hurting, we can say, "I know One who knows your hurt. He can heal you. He loves you!" We are God's living water here. We are God's overflow. Drink in all He has for you, so you can in turn give it out to others. We are just a vessel. A broken, earthen vessel that leaks out the glory of God through our cracks. Let Him into those cracks. In our brokenness, He is revealed. When we are weak, He is strong.

Be the river of life to those who are thirsty. Drink generously from the living water that God offers.
