“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.”
Romans 15:13, NIV
It’s not half empty.
It’s not half full.
If what the Bible says is true (and we believe it is), then your life isn’t meant to be anything life half a glass of water. God created you to be so perpetually full of rich experiences, rewarding relationships, and abundant blessings that you can afford to pour out huge amounts of hope, comfort, and refreshment on others-and still have more than you’ll ever need!
“The water that I shall give him will become in him a fountain of water springing up into everlasting life.”
John 4:14, DARBY
Imagine your life as a fountain—the old fashioned, four-tiered kind of fountain.
God is the source and your heart is the first level of that fountain. God is pouring his blessings into your life—filling you to the brim with his love, joy, and hope. Then the moment comes when you are so full that you can’t possibly contain it anymore. Maybe it’s a drip at first—a small bit of hope trickling from your life into someone else’s—but it isn’t long before the water is flowing freely and spilling into the next level of the fountain, and then the next, and the next. God’s love unabated—overflowing from you into the lives of your family, friends, neighbors, community, and the world.
Outflow is outreach like you’ve never experienced it before: natural, everyday, overflowing...
