Twice a year we are supposed to change the batteries in our smoke detectors.
Some do. Some don’t.
Some do, but “borrow” the battery later on for something “more important.” We promise to come back and take care of it, but we don’t.
It’s amazing how many smoke detectors go without the power of a little nine volt battery, and how many people get burned.
Get the power
Twice a year, people come to Church – Christmas and Easter. They understand the importance of a relationship with God, but they never connect His power into their daily lives. They promise to come back more, but they don’t. With the DAILY source of His power (a bazillion times greater than a nine volt battery), He also gives PEACE OF MIND as we go through the daily grind. It’s kind of like charging your nine volt battery every day, instead of twice a year.
Some do. Some don’t
It’s amazing how many people get by without the power of God in their lives. They think they don’t even need a smoke detector. I hate to say it, but they are going to get burned.
Some simply find something more “important” to do on Sundays.
What am I getting at?
Jesus gave us the Holy Spirit to help us and empower us DAILY. Not to inhibit us, but to help us. At the same time, believers in Jesus Christ get the benefit of saving Grace, so we won’t get burned. Get connected and stay connected. There’s nothing more important.
