You Will Never Lose Power Again

These were the parting words of the electrician when he finished the complex work of installing a generator that will automatically kick in when there is a storm or some other interruption of power to our house.
He left us with a white box outside of our house, a new panel of circuit breakers and a huge bill.

This installation was initiated by my husband with these words, “When I am gone, I don’t want you to ever be without power.” These are words of love, protection and empowerment. They sound like words I have heard before. Jesus told his disciples that He would be going away but he had designed a way for them to never lose power.

He would be sending His Holy Spirit to indwell them. The love, protection and empowerment of this plan would become their new reality. No simple mechanical metaphor can communicate the stunning story that we have in our relationship with God. Yet, the cost to Him, the protection of us, and the power available to us is brought to my mind every time I see the new mechanical equipment.

May we bask today in the luxury of being loved.
