As the Rain Pours Forth: An Observation of Water Falling from the Sky

  The Lord pours His Spirit upon the earth like the rain, saturating everything with living water. The water constantly flows, giving life to all that drink of it. The trees, the grass, the animals. Everything on earth needs the rain.

 So as the Spirit pours forth, saturating everything below it, the unbelievers (and even Christians) would rather seek refuge in houses, under umbrellas, or awnings. It seems we are too afraid of getting wet or ruining our clothes. We are afraid that we may catch a fever. We worry that the rain will be too cold and uncomfortable. This may be true, it may be very cold and discomforting at first, but as we sing and dance it goes away. The simple joy and fun we experience while playing in the rain makes us forget about the cold. After that we only get cold again once we step back inside.

 The Lord is looking for a people that aren’t afraid of what the neighbors think. What our friends or co-workers may think because we choose to dance in the rain (I’m speaking metaphorically of course). People who would rather look like fools and be completely sold out for Christ rather than being conformed to the image of what the world calls “normal.”

 So, I say, let’s dance! Let’s sing and rejoice in the rain.

  1. Very well put I like how you create such an amazing example of us leaving our comfort zone to face the cross. Unlike the norm that I have herd of the cumfy air conditioning you give an example of a natural element. I think also it’s beautiful that you talk about dancing like King David. And even when we look foolish to the world we are so beautiful to the Lord. You rock my brotha!


  2. My love of rain brought me to this sight as I was searching for pictures of rain. Your post is very nice- not too much to run any new comer to Jesus Christ away.Thank you for not being ashamed to acknowledge Jesus (especially you-being a guy : ) and at a time in life when it seems as though the odds are against us Christians !
