    Real Life with Pastor Steve

    Electricity… power… something we take for granted usually. But once we lose it, we realize just how much we need it. 

      How long have you ever had to go without power?  A few hours, days, weeks maybe?  I remember when I was a child, we had the “ice storm of the century” in my hometown. Power was out for over 2 weeks.  It seemed like an eternity when you’re a kid. The worst part was, it was in the middle of winter.  We wound up living with my great- grandparents out-of-state to wait it out.  It really stinks not to have power.  Nothing works.  Refrigerators, lights, heaters, electronic entertainment (yes, we had TV’s when I was a kid!).  But the longer the power is out, the greater the euphoria when it comes back on.   Hot showers, unspoiled food, lights in the darkness, comfort and heat.  So many different expressions of one singular source – power.  But it is the connection to that power that fulfills its purpose.  Well… did you know that the human race was essentially “without power” for about, oh, 4000 years? From Adam & Eve to Jesus.  But then Jesus turned on the power switch… after His ascension He gave us His Holy Spirit, humanity’s true “power source.”  The question is… are you plugged in?  To celebrate Pentecost Sunday, we’ll explore that this Sunday!  And that’s …real life. ~ Pastor Steve – Eaglebrook Church
