THE BALLOON AND THE BALLAST


We need a balance between the Holy Spirit and the Word of God. Imagine launching a helium balloon with no ballast. It would just up and away and finally burst when it reaches an altitude where the air is so thin that it cannot rise higher. It needs ballast--something to hold it in place.


That's like the Spirit and Word. Without the helium, the balloon cannot rise. Without the ballast, it will be blown here and there. And without faith, it will never launch. But with all three, we can move forward.
