John Michael Cussick (Surfing for God, 104) took out two brass spigots. One has a red knob and the other has a blue knob. The red knob represents how we often look at the Christian life. The assumption is that the source from which the water flows is a cesspool and so we focus all our energies on turning that water off. The blue spigot is a source of pure, clean water. Our ultimate goal with this spigot is to turn the water on – to release the good that is stored up.

The point of this is that we spend so much of our time trying to control sin and keeping that red spigot off that we neglect the most important spigot of all – the blue, pure, clean, and nourishing water of the Lord. Jesus is the water of life. Are you drinking of him and his word and led by his strength?
