"This then is the message
which we have heard
of him, and declare unto
that God is light, and in
him is no darkness at all.
If we say that we have
fellowship with him,
and walk in darkness, we
lie, and do not the truth:
But if we walk in the light,
as he is in the light,
we have fellowship one with
and the blood of Jesus
Christ his Son
cleanseth us from all sin."
Our Ultimate Power Source
you ever felt like you were in the dark?
I lived up North, back in 1966,
Northeastern states experienced the greatest
failure in history.
recall all of my family going to my grandparents
where we had a large fireplace with a big
black kettle of soup brewing,
the lanterns dimly giving light throughout
large living room.
entire family had gathered together for
warmth and survival that cold, powerless night.
power was out for days, and some people
without it for much longer.
Traffic signals were out;
intersections were jammed with people trying
get from one place to another;
remember reading about elevators in
of the larger departments stores
halted between floors, where people were
trapped in them for hours.
Operating rooms worked off back-up generators
airplanes circled darkened landing strips.
a young teenager at the time,
brothers, sister and cousins thought it was fun!
popped popcorn and grandma made us
chocolate and we even roasted marshmallows.
played card games and read stories
the soft light the lantern gave off.
this darkness was by far,
nothing in comparison to the darkness that
people walk in today.
Creator describes everyone who doesn't
with Him, as "being in darkness."
can be in constant illumination from
external sources, but if you are not wired to God
through His Son, Jesus Christ,
are living in an unending spiritual power failure!
is the Ultimate Power Source that will
guarantee that you will never be in the dark again!
may I suggest,
all light up our lives by plugging into Jesus Christ,
Ultimate Power Source!
