Fill `er up!

I remember when you could get gas for 25 cents a gallon!

Our gas prices are on the rise; my husband believes they will reach 5-6 dollars a gallon (with government green energy agendas). Most people pump their own gas today. I wonder how many would say ‘Fill-er-up’ where full service is available.

In the good old days customers frequently got their tanks full. All the windows were washed. Attendants even checked the water in the battery and air in the tires. Before leaving, satisfied customers checked their fuel gauge. The tank was full.

God offers us full and meaningful lives.

“[I pray that] you, being rooted and firmly established in love, may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and width, height and depth, and to know the Messiah’s love that surpasses knowledge, so that you may be filled with all the fullness of God (Ephesians 3:17b-19 HCSB).”

Commitment

‘Put your money where your mouth is!’

The act of taking our money from a billfold, swiping a credit card or affixing a signature on a personal check is visible proof. We are ready to make a major purchase. Until we exchange money, it’s mere talk.

In anticipation, car dealers wait with pen in hand; trying to persuade the hesitant to sign a contractual agreement.

‘Put your commitment where your heart is.’

Flippantly, many say that they would do anything for someone dear to them. Only a few selfless individuals would actually risk their time, possessions and personal safety to fulfill their pledge.

Jesus Christ put His life on the line. There is no greater love.

“Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends (John 15:13 NKJV).”

His heart, life and sacrificial death were as one.

“Therefore My Father loves Me, because I lay down My life that I may take it again. No one takes it from Me, but I lay it down of Myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. This command I have received from My Father (John 10:17-18 NKJV).”
