You should listen to the above song while you read this blog. They fit together.
Ezekiel 47:1-12 pumps me up. Happened to stumble across it while writing some curriculum for the Gospel of John.
Ezekiel is taken in a vision to the Dead Sea...It's Dead...The salt makes it virtually impossible for any organism to live there. There is water flowing into the sea but no water flowing out...which causes stagnancy.
But in this vision, Ezekiel is shown by God that there will be a source of water that flows into that Sea that will cause abundant life to explode out of abundant death.
God is a God who brings life out of the deadest of dead.
So when Jesus teaches in John 7 about those believing in Him having living water flow through them...we should see the correlation. God is stirring New Creation where nothing but death could've existed before. He makes beautiful things. So what dead thing in you needs resurrected.
