We sat in the dark without air conditioning for four hours last night. A storm came through and blew out our transformer. Lightning struck close to the house; I know this because I heard it and saw it simultaneously. We sometimes take for granted the continuous supply of electricity until it’s gone. And of course, since I live in Florida and the heat is sweltering, it got hot inside fast! So today, I’m looking to purchase a battery-powered fan!
Can you imagine living in a world where the Holy Spirit doesn’t exist? He is essential to our walk with the Lord and a continuous power supply. Where would we be today if we hadn’t received power from on high, the gift of the Holy Spirit? Would we have been able to hold onto our belief in Jesus, or would it diminish as the worldly lifestyle slowly seeps into our being? It’s not worth living in a world without the power of Jesus. The Bible says hell will be unbearable and hotter than a blazing furnace. Jesus won’t be in hell; he will be with us, maintaining a perfect temperature and showering us with his love.
Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the LORD has risen upon you. For behold, darkness shall cover the earth, and thick darkness the peoples; but the LORD will arise upon you, and his glory will be seen upon you. Isaiah 60:1-2
