Scripture Reading

Revelation 22:1-2 (NIV)
1 Then the angel showed me the river of the water of life, as clear as crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb 2 down the middle of the great street of the city. On each side of the river stood the tree of life, bearing twelve crops of fruit, yielding its fruit every month. And the leaves of the tree are for the healing of the nations.

The water flowing from the throne is a picture of the water of eternal life flowing from God to His people.

Jesus says that those who believe in Him will have streams of living water flowing from them.

John 7:38 (NIV)
38 Whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said, streams of living water will flow from within him.”

I want to start this year by talking about flowing in this life. This now and forever life we have in Christ. As an introduction, this week I am going to talk about an acrostic I want you to learn to help us experience and enjoy this amazing now and forever, full and abundant life that Jesus came to give us.

1. Focus

Isaiah 26:3 (NIV)
3 You will keep in perfect peace him whose mind is steadfast, because he trusts in you.

2. Listen

Isaiah 50:4b (NIV)
4 …. He wakens me morning by morning, wakens my ear to listen like one being taught.

3. Observe

Isaiah 42:20a (NKJV)
20 Seeing many things, but you do not observe;

4. Wait

Isaiah 40:31 (NKJV)
31 But those who wait on the LORD Shall renew their strength; They shall mount up with wings like eagles, They shall run and not be weary, They shall walk and not faint.
