One New Year’s Day, in the Tournament of Roses parade, a beautiful float suddenly stopped. It was out of gas. The whole parade was held up until someone could get a can of gas.
The amusing thing was this float represented the Standard Oil Company. With its vast oil resources, its truck was out of gas.
Even though Christians have access to God’s unlimited power, if we do not avail ourselves to it we will run out of power.
Act 1:8 (GNB): "But when the Holy Spirit comes upon you, you will be filled with power, and you will be witnesses for me in Jerusalem, in all of Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth."
"When a man has no strength, if he leans on God, he becomes powerful." - D.L. Moody.
