leading horses to water

Yep, it is true, "you can lead a horse to water, but you can't make him drink.". I learned this truth in practical ways from my earthly father (a horse whisperer). I learned a deeper truth from my Heavenly Father that applies here as well. We can lead others to Living Water, but they must recognize their own thirst and desire to be quenched. All we do is scatter seed, God waters and brings the harvest. [Jesus' parable of the soils (think souls)] Many of us have a deep desire to see others come to know and love God, and to be transformed into the likeness of His Son, Jesus Christ. But God, through His Spirit is the one Who does this work. Our task is to submit to Him in love and humility, and trust He will use us as His own instruments of Grace, as He redeems His children. In humility we present ourselves, vulnerable & available, to others. This is our first and last, our greatest work, to submit, to surrender, to God.
