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.
- 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.
- 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.
