Summary: Our walk in victory is totally dependant upon the fully charging daily of our spiritual life.
Pastor Ken Crow
King James Version (KJV)
1I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.
2And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
I would like to start this morning by asking a very unspiritual question. How many have their cell phones on them right now? I am going to ask those that do to do something very unspiritual. Take them out right now and hold them up. Yes, take them out. Here is mine.
Make sure it is on. OK I am going to call someone’s cell phone.
( I make the call)
The last thing I do at night before I go to bed is recharge my cell phone. The reason for this is that I want to be sure and be able to communicate with the people in my life and be reachable in case someone wishes to communicate with me.
( Have at this point someone call me)
Cell phones have revolutionized the world. In most places in the world I can call you and you can call me on our cell phones. There is no more making the excuses of well I was not home or your line was busy. As long as my cell phone is charged I am going to get your call. And if we miss each other we can leave each other messages or even text one another.
Again in order to get to the voice message or text however I must have my phone charged, Here is my phone charger. It does not look like much . In fact it looks pretty simple. Not very impressive at all. But if it gets misplaced, lost or does not operate properly I go into panic mode. My communication depends upon my charger. If my charger is dead my communication with the outside world is dead.
This morning we are going to look at a way to recharge the most important thing in our life. Yes, even something way more important than even our cell phones. We must keep our line of communication with Jesus not only open but fully charged in order to live the abundant life Jesus Spoke of in John 10:10.
Our walk in victory is totally dependant upon the fully charging daily of our spiritual life.
An Hour of Power. Recharging everyday.
We must get alone with Jesus if we are to renew daily in the Holy Ghost. Again I am talking about a life changing daily experience . We may be saved and on our way to heaven but if we desire to see change happen in our life we must keep fully charged in our spiritual life.
This is not for the slothful or the lazy . But the Word of God speaks of that in
King James Version (KJV)
4The sluggard will not plow by reason of the cold; therefore shall he beg in harvest, and have nothing
I don’t know about you but I want my harvest!
Starting out the day.
Find a place to meet with Jesus. Set up a place that is quiet and private. Put on some music.
Recharge before you start the day. Set a time and let yourself not be disturbed.
First pray the Lord’s Prayer
