Pure Energy


Worship Wednesday is brought to you by my sister and blogging tag team partner, Sista Cala.

Gas prices continue to soar, regular is up to $2.89 per gallon. Corporations and consumers alike are looking for alternate energy sources. The government is offering huge incentives to the makers of hybrid automobiles. Ethanol and bio diesel are the latest innovations.

Churches today are looking for alternatives to fuel their services. They want to boost attendance and fire up the crowd. Many have replaced the choirs with rock bands and replaced the altars with wide open spaces filled with dancers. Big screens, sports figures, movie stars, and Power-Point presentations are the latest props in the performances called church. Don't forget the coffee and casual dress. What will be next?

Instead of calling on superstars or importing the hottest bands, it is time for the church to call on Jesus and be filled with the Holy Spirit. We read in Acts 1:8 you will receive power after the Holy Ghost has come upon you...and you will be be witnesses to the uttermost part of the earth. In other words, You will be filled with POWER, and you will GO. There is no better fuel for the Christian life. Nothing can take you farther or higher. He is not an alternate resource, He is the Source. To be filled today, stay loyal to the Supplier. Ask and you will receive.

Sometimes we just seem to fall into a routine.
We need to wake up, stay alert and ask for a refreshing of the Holy Spirit in our lives.

By the way, you have become pretty knowledgeable about this blog and internet stuff.

Good job sista.
