Wayside Springs from the Fountain of Life

Wayside SpringsWayside Springs from the Fountain of Life by Theodore L. Cuyler.

The twenty-five devotional chapters teach Biblical passages and apply them to life. In chapter one Dr. Cuyler describes Israel’s journey from Egypt to Canaan when they obeyed in faith and sang the song “Spring up O well! Sing ye unto him!” with their lips but also dug the well with their shovels. Through the triple process of praying, digging (actions) and singing praise we learn that God provided. Dr. Cuyler teaches that every Christian should be involved in all three types of behavior as they seek God. The title of the book, “Wayside Springs” is God bringing blessing no matter how dry the desert, and the “Fountain of Life” is the crystal stream that flows out of the throne of God and of the Lamb.
