Here around Kerusso headquarters there was a great ice storm that came upon us on the 26th of Jan. 1″-3″ of ice – but even more than that in devastation. Pretty much closed us down for a week. Some of my co-workers still do not have electricity. I myself went for 6 days without. God can get your attention whenever He wants. Your priorities can be changed in a heartbeat. I picked the Reborn T-shirt because it refers to the real Resource, an eternal one, one that never runs out.
When you are sitting in your living room with no heat, under blankets, no radio, no TV doing nothing but listening to a battery powered clock tick – it is easy to give attention to God. What did it take for Him to get it? What does it take for you in your everyday life? [With electricity and everyday luxuries.] One thought as I sat there, was about the word resource. Electricity was the resource that was no more. My family depended on it. Why would anyone build or be content to have an electric only house?? Could no one predict any problems with this set up?? Some may think they are fine – they have a generator.
But as I found out – that resource also fails. Would you invest in a bank that you knew would lose money and deplete what you put in?? What are you investing in here on earth? How about it, what are your true resources on earth? Do you only turn to God when your resources are out? Are you wasting time that you should be growing Spritually with your Lord?? Are you putting off serving? Giving your best for an Eternal cause?? Do you show that an Eternal Source – Lights up your life? I can tell you from recent experience. That light will draw people and attention. They may not have known but now they know they want it!
