David Jeremiah’s quote guides us to find answers to those questions:
“Have you ever changed a light bulb or called a television repairman only to find out the appliance simply wasn’t plugged in? Don’t go through life like that! This is no time to be disconnected. Get plugged in and see God’s energy bring good things to light in your life.”
If you’re not plugged in to God, your faith can’t be flowing.
Because it is God who sustains our faith.
If you’re not connected to God, your faith is not maturing.
Because it is God who gives spiritual growth.
If you’re not living in Christ, your faith is withering.
Because it is not us performing but God working through us.
The Spirit can make life. Sheer muscle and willpower don’t make anything happen. Every word I’ve spoken to you is a Spirit-word, and so it is life-making. (John 6:63, MSG)
What to do then? Run to God. Daily. Make sure you’re plugged in to God. By prayer, by reading Scripture, by basking in his presence. Spend time with God. Because that is the most important relationship you ever have.
As obedient children, let yourselves be pulled into a way of life shaped by God’s life, a life energetic and blazing with holiness. (1 Peter1: 14-15, MSG)
You’re meant to shine!
Your faith is meant to flow!
Your life is meant to be energetic and blazing with holiness!
All this is yours free of charge if you just remain plugged in to God.
Because God is the source of life.
And because God loves you more than you can ever imagine.
You truly are the source of life.
Be praised forever and ever!
Thank you for the gift of life.
Enable us to receive it with awe.
We want to stay in your grace.
Empower us through your Son.
Make us blazing with holiness!
In Jesus’ name,
