Universal Solvent

Does anybody remember the universal solvent from basic chemistry? Water. Is it any wonder then that Jesus is called the Living Water? And deservedly so. It is His nature to dilute and even dissolve our problems. On top of that, He can wash us clean of sin, cool us when we’re hot, satisfy us when we’re thirsty, drown our sorrows, and put out life’s fires. Like water, He takes the shape of whatever vessel He’s in (namely your heart), He is essential for all life on Earth, and as God, He can be found in three common forms (not solid, liquid, and gas but Father, Son, and Holy Spirit). For the perfect solution, just add Jesus.

Your Name is Mud: Part 1

Genesis 2:6-7 . . . but streams came up from the earth and watered the whole surface of the ground––the LORD God formed the man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being.
(The Hebrew for man, adam, may be related to the Hebrew for ground, adamah)

The Lord made the first man from wet ground, mud. Is it any wonder that science says that the human body is anywhere from 60-90% water (depending on the source) and that once our earthly vessels die, they can be put into the ground to decompose back into whence they came?
