In a recent sermon, Brother Tim mentioned that the purpose of Sunday services was to recharge us spiritually and to prepare us for the week ahead. My mind immediately went to my constant companion—my cell phone.
The wonderful phone I have now can do almost anything. I can check the weather, sports scores, and send e-mails all at the touch of a button on my phone. The downside of this fabulous technology is that it EATS battery power. If I don’t plug it into a battery charger every single day, it is nothing but a useless hunk of metal and plastic that serves no purpose.
The same is true in my relationship with God. I can go out and carry on with all my responsibilities as a mom, wife, daughter, church member, and citizen—but at the end of the day, if I have neglected my relationship with God for the day, I am spiritually empty. I need to continually “plug in” to a body of believers and get my spirit recharged so that I can be the best servant of God that I can be.
If you find yourself running low on power, remember who is the source and owner of all power. He will recharge and renew you in all ways.
