THROUGH THE BIBLE IN THREE YEARS
According to the laws of physics:
If an object is still, it will remain still unless another force acts against it;
if an object is moving, it will remain moving unless another force acts
For me to move forward, I must exert energy greater than the forces
of friction against me.
1 John 4:4
Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them:
because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.
Light from the Word.
Bend your elbow until your palm is up and near your ear.
Put a penny on your elbow.
Quickly drop your elbow and you can catch the penny.
Inertia makes the penny want to stay where it was.
But gravity begins to pull it down.
The force of energy you expend by dropping your elbow quickly
is greater than the force of gravity.
Therefore your hand can catch the lethargic penny.
You can actually do this with a stack of pennies.
Lethargy or apathy will make your faith stagnant – like the penny
on the elbow.
In order to move forward in your faith, you must exert ENERGY!
God knew that when He saved you.
And, He supplied the energy you need!
That energy is His Holy Spirit within you!
God supplies the moving vehicle of your faith!
You just have to GET IN the vehicle!
You can do that with prayer and Bible study.
This is how you “..grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our
Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.” (2Pet. 3:18)
The more time you spend with God in prayer and Bible study,
the more of HIS energy is expended IN YOU!
