Electrical Faith

So last week our pastor did a sermon that at one point connected electricity to faith. She gave a few examples that definitely got my creative juices flowing. So I wanted to share some of what she said and a bit of some I came up with.

Electricity

  • You can’t really see it.
  • You don’t know where it comes from.
  • But you know if you plug a cord into the socket it can charge your phone.
  • If you flip the switch you will get light.
  • If you turn up the dial you will get warmth.
  • You get little reminders it exists through static shock.
  • You can witness its existence through brilliant displays of lightning.
  • You may not understand how it works, but you don’t need to.

 

God

  • You can’t really see Him.
  • You don’t know where He comes from.
  • But you know if you go to church your soul can be recharged.
  • If you read His words you can see His light.
  • If you let yourself you can feel His warmth.
  • You get little reminders he exists through daily miracles (if you look).
  • You can witness His existence through brilliant displays of sunrise, sunset and rainbows.
  • You may not understand how He works, but you don’t need to.

 

Then, there was one other thought that occurred to me: When you don’t pay your electric bill, your lights go out – could that be the same as not giving to Jesus? While I’m sure there are many more examples and analogies I could mention, I’ll let you consider them yourselves. I hope this helps to charge your faith.

    Enjoyable thought comparison, Kathleen! Very well written, recharging, makes total sense to me!
