The Fountain Of Life

S. O. A. P.

Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!

S-cripture:

Zechariah 13:1

On that day a fountain will be opened to the house of David and the inhabitants of Jerusalem, to cleanse them from sin and impurity.

O-bservation:

This prophecy, given by the prophet Zechariah, was foretelling the coming of Jesus and the fact that He would die on a cruel cross. The “Fountain” that was to be opened for the cleansing of the people’s sins was actually the blood that Jesus shed to make a way for not only Jewish people but also for Gentiles to be saved. The blood of Jesus for all “Followers of Christ” could actually be called “The Fountain Of Life.”

A-pplication:

Never has there ever been a greater hunger for real life than right now. I remember from my time as a boy in Florida, studying Florida history, that Juan Ponce De Leon discovered this state. As a kid, my teachers would tell us about the myth people believed that said Ponce De Leon was looking for the “Fountain of Youth” in the state of Florida. As an elementary boy, I wondered why anyone would want to find the “Fountain of Youth.” That was then, and this is now. I get it. I understand why people my age would love to discover the “Fountain of Youth.” But the truth is we don’t need YOUTH as much as we need LIFE! I can’t tell you how to find YOUTH, but I can tell you that I’ve found “The Fountain of Life,” and the blood of Jesus cleansed me from all my sin.

P-rayer:

Dear Jesus,

Thank You for shedding Your precious blood on the cross of Calvary for my sin. You are my “Fountain of Life” Amen
