What a miracle: water flowing from rock! We might expect that the gift of water from God in the dry desert would happen with water bubbling up from the ground like a miracle well. No. God takes it to the extreme: water gushes forth from the hard rock.
Another miracle: blood and water flowing from the side of Jesus on the cross. The rod of Moses is like the lance of the Roman soldier thrust into the side of Jesus. The gift of living water and the saving blood of Jesus flow out.
Sit in the silence. Picture water from way inside you flowing up and out as you breathe in and out. The miracle of Christ’s Living Water is always with us.
