Love: Be The Extension Cord - Pastor Chris
This got me thinking about this weeks blog. We are a lot like the extension cord. We are only the conduit that the power of God flows through to pass on to other people. We ourselves are not the source of the power. We need to stay connected to God on one side, and People on the other. (Matthew 22:36-40)
1 John 4:7 (NLT)
7 Dear friends, let us continue to love one another, for love comes from God. Anyone who loves is a child of God and knows God.
There are times where we may think, "There is no way I can love that person," and you are right, you can't. On the other hand you can be the conduit that passes on the love of God to others. We are not the source of Love, God is. We cannot create love, we can only conduct it from God, through our lives, to others. Without remaining connected to the power source, God, we are just a useless length of cable!
Are you a good conductor? Are you staying plugged in to the source of the power, or are you trying to do it on your own?
