Diet with the Bible 2-4: The Secret of Water

Updated on August 28, 2015

Drink 8 glasses of water a day? You've got to be kidding!

Before I started the SparkPeople Diet, I drank almost no water. In fact, I really didn't even drink much liquid at all, and when I did, it was something with carbonation. I haven't completely given up my Diet Pepsi, but now I drink at least a couple of bottles of water a day (about 4 glasses) and often more. And on top of that I drink herbal and iced tea. I've learned that sometimes when I think I'm hungry, I'm really just thirsty. I've also learned to enjoy some of the flavored waters out there.

Water . . . it truly is something you can get used to.


Living Water

Stage Two Step Four - Week One

As you read this week's "Healthy Habit" article, you'll discover the importance of water in your diet. It's called the "cornerstone" of your diet. One of the interesting things about that is the number of times the work "water" appears in the Bible. 482 to be exact. Jesus called Himself the "Spring of Living Water" This week your nutrition goal will be to add water to your lifestyle. Perhaps you can make your spiritual goal to add water to your lifestyle also!

Read Jeremiah 2:13 & 17:13 & John 4:7-14

  1. God called himself the "spring of living water" in the Old Testament. Why was this Samaritan, who claims (see vs. 20) she worshiped God, so confused when Jesus talked about "living water"?
  2. What was she most focused on that may have made it difficult to really see what Jesus was saying?
  3. What is it that tends to take your focus off of what Jesus might be trying to tell you?
  4. The woman asked where the water came from, but Jesus never really answered, so where does it come from? (for a hint see John 7:38-39)
  5. What can this "spring of water" do in our lives? How does it compare with a tall, cool glass of drinking water or a shower? To really compare, make a list of reasons you need water physically and write down a spiritual need that is similar and how the "spring of living water" fills this need.
  6. What Spiritual Goal can you set for yourself this week to help you "drink" a few extra glasses of the "spring of living water" this week?

Water: It's SO Refreshing!

Stage 2 ~ Step 4: Week 2

So, how many glasses of water did you average every day this past week? Did it help to refresh you?

Read 2 Timothy 1:16-18 & Philemon 1:4-7 & 17-21

  1. 1. Paul talks about having his spirit refreshed in these verses. How did Onesiphorus and Philemon refresh Paul's spirit?
  2. What would it take to refresh your spirit?
  3. What can we do to refresh God's Spirit?

    Read Proverbs 11:25

  4. How can you refresh others:
    a. Your family;
    b. your friends;
    c. your co-workers;
    d. Strangers, other drivers, people at the store;
    e. others in the congregation;
    f. others in this group
  5. "The Man who refreshes will be refreshed." How might remembering this proverb help you in your walk, not just as your eating journey, but your journey with Christ?
  6. What Goal can you set for yourself this week so you are more refreshed and to help you be more refreshing to God and to others?
