Living a Power Filled Life. The lesson on 06-16-2002 celebrates Father’s Day in America. For this message, the scripture reading covered Luke 15:11-13. Living a power filled life from a Christian perspective recognizes that true power is not worldly. Worldly success is vain and never satisfies. Consider the man who has six million dollars to the man that has six children. The millionare wants more yet the man with six kids is satisfied! But seriously, riches, strength, and glory are things we should not pursue. Jeremiah 9:23,24 (KJV) tells us “Thus saith the LORD, Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom, neither let the mighty man glory in his might, let not the rich man glory in his riches: But let him that glorieth glory in this, that he understandeth and knoweth me, that I am the LORD which exercise lovingkindness, judgment, and righteousness, in the earth: for in these things I delight, saith the LORD.” We need to focus on getting to know God who is our Heavenly Father so as children of God, we put our faith in a relationship that lasts for eternity. Father’s Day sets aside one day to honor our earthly father’s to let them know how they have blessed our lives. How much more then should we set each and every day aside to honor our Heavenly Father, who has blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places. Let’s take the attitude of Joshua who said in Joshua 24:15b (KJV) “but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.” Click here to listen to the lesson on 06-16-2002.
