I arrived at the hotel and realized I forgot my cell phone charger. The battery was down to 30% and going fast. I have to admit I was a little concerned. I’ve come to depend on my phone and suddenly realized that I had no way to re-energize it. I could purchase a charger the next morning or possibly borrow one if available, brain storming solutions as though my life depended on it.
How much more should we be concerned about re-energizing our spiritual life? How long has it been since a serious quiet time in prayer and in God’s word? Is your spiritual meter down to 30%, 20%, or even 10%? Our spiritual life needs new life breathed into it every day. The Christmas season is upon us, and it’s easy to get distracted with the busyness of the season when we should slow down and re-energize. Spend time in prayer for your church family, friends, family, and the needs of others. Spend time in God’s word rejoicing in the birth of Jesus. Thanking God for our Savior and all he has done for us. Time to plug into……Jesus!
