Sea water anyone?
Not, it's not what you think! I am not suggesting that we go and fill our cups with the water from Durban beaches and swig away. Who does that anyway?
I use the concept of drinking sea water (which is gross, by the way), in light of this quote from Gene Edwards:
"The Christian life is first, having the highest life in you. Secondly, living by means of that life. That makes all other offers taste like sea water." (The Highest Life)
Jesus said that he had come to 'give us life' (John 10:10) - all other offers, should taste like sea water, in comparison. However, there are many people that seem to enjoy drinking sea water. What about us?
How is a glass of ice cold sea water sounding to you?
You can count me out...
Grace upon grace,
