We think we need a little water to clean ourselves up. But He sees that our lives are joyless and stale. They may be fun or even exciting. But because we fail to see the true source of life, because we fail to trace all good things to the source, those things are not truly SIGN-if-i-cant. WE MAY SAY ‚ÄúOK, so maybe I DO need to root my joy‚Ä¶ not in shopping or success‚Ä¶ or scuba-diving or in getting people to think I'm ‚Äėnice' or ‚Äėpretty' or ‚Äėcool'‚Ä¶ OK , Lord, I could use a little Gospel joy in my life‚ÄĚ But God is saying, ‚ÄúI don't DO that! I don't transact with dabblers! I don't dispense a safe little shot-glass of hermetically sealed spiritual happiness given to good little boys and girls who shape up and behave and get a little religion.‚ÄĚ ‚ÄúI,‚ÄĚ says Jesus Christ, ‚Äúam the LORD of the better wine and I give only to big sinners who see their BIG FAILINGS.‚ÄĚ Come and drink the better wine and leave your shot-glass at home! Come and really face how desperately you need grace. ‚ÄúI am the Vine.‚ÄĚ, Jesus will say, ‚Äúunless you are tied to Me, grafted to Me, you can bear no fruit. Apart from Me, you can do NOTHING!‚ÄĚ See that YOU are a big mess and that Jesus Christ is a BIG SAVIOR. You've tried your ceremonial washings of religion and spirituality. You've tried dabbling in Christianity. Come now and drink deeply of the better Wine: real salvation for real sinners.
