Clean Water at H20:DC

A flushing toilet, washing your hands, water coming out of the faucet…three things that many Westerners can’t imagine living without. Our concept of water started with our first sips of clean H2O.

Filled with the Holy Spirit

We are told to be filled with the Holy Spirit (Ephesians 5:18). Embedded in this command is a metaphor. Unfortunately, many Christians today are uncomfortable with metaphor, thinking that if something is metaphorical, it is somehow not entirely truthful. Big mistake.
