In today’s technology laden and busy world, Jesus is so near and understanding that He doesn’t even ask us to walk on water to come out and meet Him.
He parks the boat right by the shore. And yet, it still sits empty.
Most of us prefer to splash around in the muddy waters before we trust a god we do not know.
So what’s the answer?
Pick up the Bible. Get to know the one true God. Trust Him. And get in the boat.
He will lead you to fresh waters.
Then he led me back to the bank of the river. When I arrived there, I saw a great number of trees on each side of the river. He said to me, “This water flows toward the eastern region and goes down into the Arabah, where it enters the Dead Sea. When it empties into the sea, the salty water there becomes fresh. Swarms of living creatures will live wherever the river flows. There will be large numbers of fish, because this water flows there and makes the salt water fresh; so where the river flows everything will live. Fishermen will stand along the shore; from En Gedi to En Eglaim there will be places for spreading nets. The fish will be of many kinds—like the fish of the Mediterranean Sea. But the swamps and marshes will not become fresh; they will be left for salt. Fruit trees of all kinds will grow on both banks of the river. Their leaves will not wither, nor will their fruit fail. Every month they will bear fruit, because the water from the sanctuary flows to them. Their fruit will serve for food and their leaves for healing.”
