Imagine that you walk into a room and it is cold – even frigid! On the wall are two devices. One’s a thermometer. It measures the temperature of the room and simply tells you what it is. The other is a thermostat. It measures the atmosphere in the room and then draws upon the furnace to change it – to warm it up. You may live or work in a pretty cold or even hostile environment. I have no doubt that you feel it and recognize it for what it is. The question is, “Do you have a source to draw from to change it?”
You see, walking with Christ in a vibrant and personal relationship gives you access to the grace of God. That’s like a huge source which when brought to bear on your environment can change it – from a cold, sterile, hostile, atmosphere, to a warmer, and hospitable circumstance. In one case you are reactive. In another you are transformational. So the big question is this: “Are you like a thermostat or a thermometer?”
If you have any prayer requests, please feel free to let me know. We’ll pray for you!
