Battery Wanted....

Let's say "hypothetically" I walked outside this morning and noticed the my drivers door was slightly open. And let's say it naturally didn't surprise me when my car wouldn't start (battery is dead right?). After grabbing some jumper cables from a neighbor (that I woke up) I opened the hood to find that my battery was not dead in fact I'm sure it was alive and well SOMEWHERE else. That's right boys and girls someone stole my car battery in the middle of the night. Ok...so it's not a hypothetical, it's reality. STINK!

With that in mind I'd like to ask a question. Are you living off of someone else's spiritual battery (experience)? Do you mooch off of other people for spiritual and emotional support all the time? If so, you need to know that Christ wants a personal relationship with you, not a religious one. He doesn't want you living vicariously through other people. Is your life compass spinning? Do you feel like you don't know where to turn? I encourage you to stop striving by calling one more person or trying that "next" book. Have your own authentic experience with God.

Get Started,

  1. I totally agree, I know a lot of teens in our church here in SD that live off their parents spirituallity then they move off to college or other things and they totally fall away from God. It is so sad.
