Today as we came out of Hezekiah’s tunnel and sat at the Pool of Siloam I was struck with a new appreciation for the story of the blind man whom Jesus sent from the city to wash at the pool. The path is steep and difficult today, what would it have been like if one was blind? And the priest who came down to get water to pour on the altar at Succoth; he must have been filled with determination to fulfill the commands of his priesthood.
Oh, that our passion for the Father would be with such earnest dedication. Is Discipleship like this too hard for us or can we with joy go to the spring of Siloam even though it is a long difficult walk? Take courage, it is worth the drink of living water!
