Some years ago, on New Year’s Day during the Tournament of Roses Parade, a beautiful float sputtered and quit. It was out of gas. The entire parade was stalled until someone could find a gas can and get this giant, flower-covered float moving again. The ironic thing was this float represented the Standard Oil Company. Despite the vast oil resources of this multinational corporation, its engine was out of gas (1).

How many Christians live life without sufficient gas to go the distance? Do you know that you have been clothed with His power?
