What’s a Christmas without batteries? Hmm, that’s a thought for you and me to mull 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.
Free advice included in this message…. Stock up on batteries before Christmas and remove dead batteries from your cameras. You won’t want to miss a minute of the action; this year’s Christmas will be next year’s memories. As Christians, we 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 HCS).” We receive his power through repeated fillings. “....be filled with the Spirit (Ephesians 5:18b HCS).” Batteries power gizmos; the Holy Spirit empowers Emmanuel followers!
