“They have lost connection with the head, from whom the whole body, supported and held together by its ligaments and sinews, grows as God causes it to grow. Colossians 2:19

🔴 STAYING CONNECTED!
There are very few things that work manually anymore. Nearly everything needs a battery or power to function. Gone is the day for the block of ice to keep food cold. Young’uns – millenniums probably don’t know much about that or putting vegetables wrapped in brown paper bags sprinkled with lime in a cellar to last throughout the winter.
Dehydration machines were not so popular back in the day, nor were the triple door refrigerator-freezers. Now we fuss about who will load or unload the dishwasher.
Back in the Day
Before the 1970’s dishwashing meant using your dishpan hands to cleanse plates for the next use. Now the choices are endless, and we seek automation to save ‘time’.
Gone are the days of exerting physical energy to clean, drive, or call friends. Every device can be recharged and remind us when we have to do the next thing.
But, detaching from manual labor creates privileged thinking. We take comfort for granted and become snobbish. We can combat that attitude by staying connected to Christ. He is our ultimate power source.
We do not need to fear being drained by manual labor, helping our neighbors, or going the extra mile. Recharge your battery through prayer and meditate on His Word.
Our Lord never has an outage or needs a break. He never needs upgrading or updating. We have a wireless connection to God, Almighty, every moment of every day. Now that’s what would be called a superpower source by any definition!
Do you want to be connected to this source?
If you do, ask Jesus Christ to come into your life and start a lifetime connection with the most significant power source ever!
