Harnessed Energy

Power can be unleashed, or it can be harnessed. The energy in ten litres of petrol can be released explosively by dropping a lighted match into the can. Or it can be channeled through a car engine and used to transport a person a hundred or more kilometres. Explosions are spectacular, but controlled burns have lasting effect. In the spiritual realm it is God’s Spirit that causes spectacular manifestations of spiritual energy to happen – things like the remarkable explosion of faith we see in China where, even after decades of brutal suppression, the number of Christian believers continues to increase dramatically. But it is also God’s Spirit that enables ordinary people like us to live quiet and purposeful lives, characterised by faith, hope and love, instead of lives of quiet desperation. That’s harnessed energy.
