What’s a Christmas without batteries?
Hmm, that’s an interesting concept. Let’s mull that over for a minute or two. So many of our gizmos need batteries inserted before we can operate them. Pity the parents who forget to buy batteries before children and teens open their gifts.
What about poor Dad? He will be unable to hear the whir of battery operated tools if they are not included.
There’s still time to buy extra batteries; you won’t want to miss a minute of the battery operated action. The thrifty use rechargeable batteries. As a Christian, I depend on a far greater power than disposable batteries.
“But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth (Acts 1:8 HCSB).”
Like rechargeable batteries, we receive God’s power through repeated fillings.
“… be filled with the Spirit (Ephesians 5:18b HCSB).”
While batteries power gizmos, the Holy Spirit empowers Emmanuel followers!
