Every day, we need to go to our quiet place...

Today's Scriptural Meditation Readings:

November 30, A.D. 2002

Romans 10:9-18
Psalm 19:2-5
Matthew 4:18-22

A brief reflection on today's Scripture passages:

"The River of Life-giving Water...." (Revelation 10:9)

The river of Life flows from the throne of the Lamb (Jesus) and God (the Father). It is a river of abundance, and of refreshment. It is a river from which we can drink through the power of the Holy Spirit.

This same river of life is an adornment of the heavenly Jerusalem. Take one moment and think about a stream, listen to it in your imagination, a gentle rambling brook.

Even that moment revives, refreshes, and prepares us to work a little longer at what we do. Imagine then a river of pure Life, of pure refreshment--a river that renews, and makes all things new.

Think for a moment what you would give to bathe in that river. And then remember, that it is offered us as a gift, we pay nothing. Love gives all.

Heavenly Father,
source of all love,
through the ministry of Christ's Spirit,
work in our lives to perfect us in your love.
May we come to merit a dwelling place in your home.
