Christians Can Be Clueless
Ever study birds on a power line? Dozens . . . hundreds . . . side-by-side, chirping away—oblivious to the power surge right under their feet.
We Christians can be equally clueless. The Holy Spirit is our divine strength, but we may be as unaware of His presence as those birds on a wire. Contrast that picture with Paul's comment to the Philippians about his power source. Paul said, "I can do all things through Him who strengthens me."
This is Howard Butt, Jr., of Laity Lodge. We all face distractions. In our busyness, we're like birds on a wire, unaware of the power within and around us. This divine power enables us to do ordinary things in extraordinary ways . . . in the high calling of our daily work.
I can do all things through him who strengthens me. (Phil. 4:13, ESV)
