So the other day I was talking about my watch. And the flat battery.
Well, it reminded me of an analogy I used once when doing a sermon about the Holy Spirit.
A lady goes to the jeweller, because her watch has stopped. He takes it, has a look, fiddles around with it, and gives it back. She asks him, “What did you do?”
“I just changed the battery.” He replies.
“Battery?” she says, “I didn’t know it had a battery, I’ve been winding it up every day.”
Are we trying to wind ourselves up every day? Are we trying to do things in our own strength? God has a battery pack for us. Are we using it?
Think about it.
