Our Solar Powered Life

In 2021, Texas faced an unprecedented event.

An unusually cold February brought ice and snow as far as the Gulf Coast, an area that usually enjoys balmy weather throughout much of the winter.

The cold snap also brought blackouts across the state, some that lasted for days in the below-freezing weather, leaving people literally in the dark. Some Texas residents resorted to breaking up furniture to burn in their fireplaces.

People were living in the blackness, unable to see a way to survive in their frigid homes. Many wouldn’t make it through to see the storm end and warmer weather return.

Many Christians face the same challenge in their walk of faith. They’ve known the power of God, then a cold snap causes the electricity to fail. They open their Bible or fall to their knees, but the power isn’t there.

God hasn’t disappeared or ceased to be God. Just like in Texas in 2021, outside the state, there was plenty of power. Portions of the state never lacked all the power they could use. They just didn’t have a way to get those without it powered up again.

Ephesians 5:8 gives us no excuse for not being connected to our everlasting, ever-powerful God:

“For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Live as children of light.”

This verse tells us the power might have gone off in the past, but IT’S ON NOW! The solar collectors are on the roof, and they are sucking in the juice. God is sending his power our way, and we need to put it to use. No huddling in the darkness. We need to flip the breakers and let our light shine. Other people need what God can let flow through us.

Stories came out of the Texas storm about people sharing generators, the power stored in their electric vehicles, and their wall outlets, when they could.

Christians must share Jesus. If not, the Bible tells us that not everyone will survive.

Now, it’s your turn. You are the light of the Lord. Live like it.

Excerpt of the Day

When the hurting seek the truth of Christ, we must minister to them in the moment of their pain.
