POWER

 

1 Corinthians 1:18

The message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.

What of Today’s Verse…

Power! We love power. We love the sound and fury of power. We love the ability to change things that power brings. But the greatest power ever unleashed on this earth was the power displayed when the Almighty God held back his power while his Son was persecuted and murdered so we could be saved. Now that’s an awesome display of power.

Let us Pray:

Holy and Majestic God on high, I praise you for your incredible might and power. But I also thank you for your love, which guides the release of that power. Thank you for knowing that I am but dust without your sustaining Spirit. Thank you for saving me by withholding your mighty power so I could be pardoned by your sacrificial power. Through Jesus’ mercy I offer this prayer. Amen.

Words of Wisdom

Time is what we make it

We must come to see that human progress never rolls in on wheels of inevitability. It comes through the tireless efforts and persistent work of men willing to be co-workers with God, and without this hard work time itself becomes an ally of the forces of social stagnation.

— Martin Luther King, Jr.

Time does not cure all ills, time does not make things better. It is only through living, and striving, and struggling against the challenges, that things are made better.

Time is not our servant. Neither is it our oppressor. Time is our workplace, and our raw material. We can fashion it in any way we choose, through focus and effort.

And time comes to us in doses of now. Now is the only time we have, to do what we must do. If we wait until the “right” time, it never comes. Things will only be “right” when we act to make them so. Now is the only time we have, and now is when we must act.

We must expect the best — of ourselves, and of others. And then we must work to make it so.
