Remember when we were kids and either our Mom or the local kids with the lemonade stand would give us a cup of that wonderful drink. I still remember how on a very hot summer day the liquid hit every taste bud I had as it went down my throat and how cool and refreshing it was. And, then I asked for another........
And I as I aged, it seemed that no matter how hard I tried nothing could ever really satisfy my "Thirst" for just about everything in life. As I fell in line with the general thinking of this world, there was always more to be had, more to drink, more to accomplish, more, more, more.....
What went wrong? Maybe this has happened to you and you are still trying to figure out why? For me, it was just about every possible way I approached life. But you know what main ingredient I was missing? A true relationship with the one who could quench my thirst. Not a church, not a group, not a spouse or friend, but the one who has "living water".
And, what ingredients does that "living water" have and how can it satisfy our needs? How can we change a life long thirsting for more? If you come Sunday to our ATB class, we will explore this both from our new series "Jesus Unfiltered" and a personal testimony.
Please join us if you just need a cup to drink or maybe you want just a little more. Either way, the solution is the same, and Jesus taught us by personal example how we can be satisfied.
Can't wait (well that's another problem we will address later)!
