Well as far as Sam, our dog is concerned today has been very exciting. The mailman had to drop something off so Sam got a chance to greet him, John came to clean the windows, another chance for a greeting, and the gas man came to switch out our old electricity and gas meters for new ones which are called smart meters. Apparently we should be able to monitor our power usage better and thus be able to save electricity and gas so as to be more ecological and also save a wee bit of money.
It got me thinking about our own power for living which made me think of 1 Corinthians 1:18, ” For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.” As we get closer to Easter and think more and more about the sacrifice of Christ upon the cross so we get more excited as we look forward in eager anticipation to hear those great stories again of Jesus love for us that took him to the cross and then the wonderful demonstration of God’s power and the truth of Jesus claims on Easter Sunday morning. They really are a source of power for us as we remember and as we claim the victory over sin and death through Jesus.
If you had a smart meter on your spiritual life, how much power would it show? Have you claimed the victory through Jesus Christ and asked for the Holy Spirit to bless you in your journey of faith? Are you living by faith, reliant on the power of God or by sight, relying on your own strength alone? As Easter approaches turn to God afresh, rely on his majesty and love and experience the power which is salvation anew.
