 Rivers of Living Water - Nee

April 21 Daily Devotional by Watchman Nee

He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, from within him shall flow rivers of living water. John 7.38.

We need to pay special attention to the word "flow" here. Such a term does not suggest the use of platform tactics, a certain tone of voice, some profound psychology, some eloquence, argument or learning. Although all these may at times be helpful, they themselves are neither the living water nor the mechanism by which the living water issues forth. To "flow" suggests something most natural; it requires no human effort but simply follows the grade.

The life and power of the Holy Spirit appears to flow naturally through our spirit. Otherwise, no matter how passionately we preach, our audience will listen passively. And even if sometimes they may seem to pay full attention and may seem to understand and be moved, nevertheless, what we say can only draw a praise from their mouths without giving them the life and power to do what they hear. May we be the channels of God’s life today.
