A vacuum salesman down in rural Tennessee. He had a his vacuum cleaner and all of this tools and everything, and he went out there and he told a lady, "I’ve got the most exciting vacuum cleaner you have ever seen. It will clean your house from top to bottom...you only have to pay so much down."

And the lady said, "It sounds real good."

He said, "You see that big pile of dirt right there on the floor with all those fur balls and bugs and things." He said, "My vacuum cleaner will just pick up all those things up just like that and if they don’t, I’ll eat it."

She said, "Well, you might as well get your knife and fork, because we do not have any electricity out here!"

Power is the one thing nations, politicians and businessman

covet. But the power that we need is not an earthly

power. God has promised believers Spiritual power.

Vance Havner once rightly said,"We are not going to move this world by criticism of it nor conformity to it, but by combustion within it of lives ignited by the Spirit of God."

(From a sermon by Donnie De Loney, Pentecostal Power, 5/22/2012)
