This morning I woke up and hit the power button on my phone only to find that my battery was at 1%. I had five seconds to look at the screen before the phone shut down with a dead battery. That’s when I realized that last night I didn’t plug my phone in to the charger. The charger was plugged in to the wall right next to my phone. It had been there all night. But I didn’t plug it in.
It occurs to me that many Christians go through life this way. We have the Bible. We may even have several Bibles. But if you don’t read the Bible and plug yourself in to God’s charger, your spiritual battery is going to die.
We have prayer available to us day or night, in any time at any place. If we have trusted in Christ as Savior we may come boldly to the throne of grace. But how often do we? How often do we speak to our Heavenly Father, the Creator of the Universe? Just having God available to us does not help us. We must grasp the opportunity to speak with Him and read His Words. Only then can we recharge and become useful to Him.
