"I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes..."NIV
"For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth..."KJV
The world is full of beliefs about power and energy, spiritual energy that is. Exactly what is energy? It is defined as "the capacity for vigorous activity from available power" or "forcefulness of expression." If we are not alert, we will act from the wrong source of energy. For the children of God, the cross of Christ is the only source of energy. This same power, or energy, parted the Red Sea, kept the three Hebrews from burning in the fiery furnace, turned a small sack lunch into enough to feed 5000 with baskets left over, brought Jesus Christ out of the grave to the right hand of the Father in heaven. There is no energy greater than that! If we plug ourselves into that source of power, it costs us our own control of our lives, but the benefits are indescribable. The cross of Christ is what gives us energy to draw others to Him.
Heavenly Father, we humble ourselves before You and give You control of our lives, by the power of the cross of Jesus Christ. We pray for that power that will draw others to the foot of the cross of Christ, that they may have eternal life and take Your power to others. In Jesus name we pray, Amen.
