POWER COMES FROM GOD


There is an interesting account about Thomas Aquinas visiting Pope Innocent II in the 12th century. The great theologian and philosopher came upon the pope auditing some of the Vatican's treasure. The pope stated, "No more must the church say with Peter that of silver and gold we have none." To which Aquinas replied, "Yes, but also the church can no longer say to the lame man, 'Rise, stand up, and walk."


The POWER comes from God, and if we start to depend on anything other than God, we lose it.
