Same river twice.....................

]Same river twice' is the title of a film we watched recently which we enjoyed. the title alludes to the saying from Heraclitus "you cannot step into the same river twice," The story is of four men who revisit a river for some white water rafting and revisiting a tragedy and how they have (or havn't) dealt with it.

The Heraclitus saying, 'you cannot step into the same river twice' is explained as to express his belief in the ever-changing nature of the universe. By stating that "you cannot step into the same river twice," he meant that everything is in a constant state of flux and that the river, like everything else, is always changing. 'No man ever steps in the same river twice, for it's not the same river and he's not the same man.'

There is a river however that doesn't change but will change anyone who steps into it forever and that is the river of life.

Revelation 22:1-3

New King James Version

The River of Life

22 And he showed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding from the throne of God and of the Lamb. 2 In the middle of its street, and on either side of the river, was the tree of life, which bore twelve fruits, each tree yielding its fruit every month. The leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations. 3 And there shall be no more curse, but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it, and His servants shall serve Him.

John 7:38 New King James Version

38 He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.”
