George Duncan once went to visit some friends in the English countryside. For years they had lived in an old-fashioned, rundown building. To Mr. Duncan’s surprise, he discovered that the house had been completely remodeled. The people had installed new lights, an electric stove, and many other pieces of modern equipment. But he was even more surprised to see the lady of the house still using a kerosene stove for cooking and oil lamps for lighting. After greeting him, she said, “George, don’t look so confused. We’ve had a great change here, but we just haven’t turned on the power yet.”

That’s the problem with many Christians and hence the church. We lack the power of God to accomplish our mission.
