H2O :: By Jim Towers


While rinsing the dishes before putting them in the dishwasher, I couldn’t help but marvel at the effectiveness of this miraculous substance that has so many uses. Truly, water is a miraculous liquid. I thought about explaining this substance in detail, but since I’m not a scientist, I thought I had better do a little research on what water (H2O) is.

Realizing that you can’t rely wholly on Wikipedia for truthful answers anymore (since liberals have invaded all aspects of American society and are now using it to forward their agenda), I’ll nevertheless take my chances with this answer as to what water is.

Water (chemical formula H2O) is an inorganic, transparent, tasteless, odorless, and nearly colorless chemical substance, which is the main constituent of Earth’s hydrosphere and the fluids of all known living organisms (in which it acts as a solvent). It is vital for all known forms of life, even though it provides neither food, energy, nor organic micronutrients. Its chemical formula, H2O, indicates that each of its molecules contains one oxygen and two hydrogen atoms, connected by covalent bonds. The hydrogen atoms are attached to the oxygen atom at an angle of 104.45°. “Water” is the name of the liquid state of H2O at standard conditions for temperature and pressure.

A number of natural states of water exist. It forms precipitation in the form of rain and aerosols in the form of fog. Clouds consist of suspended droplets of water and ice, its solid state. When finely divided, crystalline ice may precipitate in the form of snow. The gaseous state of water is steam or water vapor.

Water covers about 70.9% of the Earth’s surface, mostly in seas and oceans. Small portions of water occur as groundwater (1.7%), in the glaciers and the ice caps of Antarctica and Greenland (1.7%), and in the air as vapor, clouds (consisting of ice and liquid water suspended in air), and precipitation (0.001%). Water moves continually through the water cycle of evaporation, transpiration (evapotranspiration), condensation, precipitation, and runoff, usually reaching the sea.

Water plays an important role in the world economy. Approximately 70% of the freshwater used by humans goes to agriculture. Fishing in salt and fresh water bodies is a major source of food for many parts of the world, providing 6.5% of global protein. Much of the long-distance trade of commodities (such as oil, natural gas, and manufactured products) is transported by boats through seas, rivers, lakes, and canals. Large quantities of water, ice, and steam are used for cooling and heating, in industry and homes. Water is an excellent solvent for a wide variety of substances both mineral and organic; as such it is widely used in industrial processes, and in cooking and washing.

Water, ice and snow are also central to many sports and other forms of entertainment, such as swimming, pleasure boating, boat racing, surfing, sport fishing, diving, ice skating and skiing.

As I rinsed the dishes, it dawned on me how we take so many things for granted, never giving a second thought about such a wonderful substance. We should be thankful for all the wonders God has placed in the world for our existence and well-being.

Since Jesus is co-creator with God the Father, is it any wonder that Jesus referred to Himself as Living Water? After all, He cleanses us from sin (but only if we ask Him to). Like the story of the Samaritan “woman at the well,” Jesus offers His cleansing power to us freely.

Among the many other things, water also cleanses wounds and refreshes our bodies in a way that nothing else does. Since the body is made up of mostly water, it is imperative that we keep it well hydrated. This, in turn, makes our bodies healthier and more mobile. It also gives our skin a healthy glow.

Last night, I had a cramp in my leg, and the feeling of pain and helplessness was beyond measure. I have therefore determined to drink more water. Without it, we would shrivel up and die.

Like so many other things in life, we take the miraculous things God has made for granted – things like eyesight, much like a tiny aperture in your cell phone sending precise colorful images to your brain.

Insofar as taste is concerned, can you imagine a pizza with no taste? The more stuff you add on, the better it tastes, not to mention the wonderful smell – or should I say aroma?

The sense of touch has incalculable benefits to our functioning. Without it, we would be incapable of many things.

We must be thankful to a God who has made us a little lower than the angels and in His very own image and likeness (Genesis 1; John 1).

Wow! What a God we serve!!

Book review:

Since I wrote to you last, I’ve read a couple of books and started one that left me cold. What started out as an informative book on what the ancient times were like in world history, this young man has taken on something beyond his pay grade – the Deity of Christ.

I usually read a book a week, and it must be a non-fiction book, preferably by a Christian writer. All else is a waste of precious time for me. So, you can imagine my surprise when I started reading a new book titled Zealot written by a highly educated younger man in his thirties.

It started off well enough by setting the stage for historical insight of the Jewish people, their God, and their tumultuous history. I learned a lot about Jewish history from just the first two chapters. But by looking at Jesus from a historical point of view and not giving credence to the Bible, this young man has strayed from the basic tenants of Christianity.

(This is what happens when we rely on manmade ideas and philosophies and quasi-historical meanderings as well.)

It appears that his liberal teachers at the university level did their best to indoctrinate him into their erroneous way of thinking.

Three verses come to mind on this issue: “The just shall live by faith,” “Faith cometh by hearing and hearing by the Word of God,” and “Without faith it is impossible to please God.”
