Last Tuesday morning, as Odelia and Jeremiah stepped out of the house, I was about to settle down and read the Word of God when the doorbell rang. The car will not start because the battery was low. Our 3-year-old son (Jeremiah) has gotten into the habit of switching the back-seat light on, and this time we did not notice it. The light he switched on was not very bright, hence why it escaped our notice; however, it was that very deem light which wasn’t particularly noticeable that drained our car battery after a few hours.
Friends, sometimes it isn’t the big obvious sin that drains our spiritual health and wellbeing. Most Christians will often avoid these forms of sin. Rather, it is the little lies, the little harbouring of unforgiveness, the few days you go without prayer and spending time in God’s Word (etc.) that eventually drains you. It may seem little or excusable to start off with, but given time, you will sense a spiritual low or coldness.
“Therefore, my beloved brothers, be steadfast, immoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that in the Lord your labour is not in vain” 1 Corinthians 15:58.
Keep the fire of the Holy Spirit burning.
