When traveling in a car, it is not the comfort of the A/C or heater
that gets you where you are traveling.
It is the complexity of the mechanics: the motor, the transmission,
the wheels, etc.

And, it is true also in the movement of your life.
As a disciple of Christ, it is not the family, the community or even
the church that keeps you going.
It is the intimate relationship with Christ!

Ps 63:1-5
O God, You are my God; I shall seek You earnestly;
My soul thirsts for You, my flesh yearns for You,
In a dry and weary land where there is no water.
2 Thus I have seen You in the sanctuary,
To see Your power and Your glory.
3 Because Your lovingkindness is better than life,
My lips will praise You.
4 So I will bless You as long as I live;
I will lift up my hands in Your name.
5 My soul is satisfied as with marrow and fatness,
And my mouth offers praises with joyful lips.

LIGHT from the WORD.

Family, church and community are helps in moving our lives along.
Each of them has purpose in the world, and we are to certainly
be involved with them.

But the machinery which really motivates our hearts is the
involvement we have with Christ.

John 15:5
I am the vine, ye are the branches:
He that abideth in me, and I in him,
the same bringeth forth much fruit:
for without me ye can do nothing.

THEN, with that relationship established daily, we can have
a correct outlook upon our relationship with family, church and community!

A missionary overseas was going home on leave.
Another, interim missionary was taking his place for a year.
The jeep which the missionary had been using wouldn't start.
The new missionary was mechanically minded.
He opened the hood, made a short adjustment, and the Jeep
He said, "It was simple, your motor was disconnected
from the POWER SOURCE!"

Without daily prayer and Bible study, the disciple is
disconnected from the POWER SOURCE - JESUS!

Start EACH day with CONNECTING to JESUS!

As a disciple of Jesus Christ, NOTHING of value can be
accomplished without an INTIMATE relationship with Him!

Are YOU connected?

Love ya!
