Joh 4v14 – Dust

One experience you get from camping in Namibia is being constantly surrounded by dust. Your tent, feet, clothes, car all get covered in dust. Etosha gets so dry that they need to create man-made waterholes for the animals to get enough water. All the animals will walk for hours just to get a few sips of water, which is crucial for survival. It made me think of us as humans. God created us from dust. We read in Genesis 2:7, “Then the LORD God formed a man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being.” We can often think we’re such powerful beings, yet in a moment, we can be turned back to what we came from. However, just like the animals, we also need water to survive. Not just any water, but the water of life. “But whoever drinks the water I give them will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give them will become in them a spring of water welling up to eternal life.” (John 4:14). Drink deeply of the water God provides and experience his refreshing.
