“An Interesting Analogy”

By: Lisa Velez
August 22, 2005


I’ve had this analogy running around in my head for the longest time. People may probably think I’m crazy when they read this, but if one goes just a little further, they may find that it all makes sense.
Many times when I’m in the car and I pass those electrical poles that look like tall crosses, I think of Jesus. Not only because they’re in the shape of a cross but because of the electrical wires that stem from them.
When we feel down and out and are so weak we can’t even stand on our own, Jesus, by His blood that he shed on the cross for us, gives us the ultimate power against all the odds. He is our “power” our “strength” our “vitality.” And by His cross, by His stripes, by His death and resurrection, we are electrified and made able to do all things through Him alone.
Those electric poles are also a reminder of what Christ did on the cross for me and for everyone around this broken and hurting world. They remind me of how the soldiers lifted Jesus close to the sky, just as those poles look like they’re touching it. They’re a reminder of how, as empowered as Jesus was, He could have jumped up off of that cross and said, “Huh, in all your faces, you can’t touch me!” But He chose to hang there, on that cross, surrendering His power to His Heavenly Father God, and suffered, at our sinful hands, just to save us, who had ultimately done nothing to be worthy of such grace and mercy.
As He stretched out His arms and held Heaven’s gates open for the first time, He was telling the world that He loved us so much He would do anything for us, and thus, did.
And so, when I see those electrical poles of power, I’m reminded to “look up” to Him just as I “look up” to the tops of the poles. And I’m reminded of the ultimate price paid with a cross, three nails, and the jagged edge of a spear, and the ultimate power that was sacrificed all for our sake. How could we ever repay our awesome Jesus for such a perfect gift of love? I don’t think we ever could. But we sure can try, by following and loving Him with everything we are and hope to be. I know I will.
And maybe this short article sounds just "a-little-bit" corny, but one thing I do know for a fact, is that it is "a lot-a-bit" true!"



If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
