I saw an advertisement last night for a new Ford SUV. The tailgate automatically opens when you swipe your foot under the rear bumper. Hands free entering! I spoke up and asked Anita, what happens if a dog runs under your car? I don’t think I would trust that new idea.
Why is it we Americans want everything to be hands free convenience? What happened to being satisfied with a door handle? Its Anita and my experience that the more bells and whistles come with the car, the more things there are to break down and cost us money to repair.
The whole convenience thing is a part of our “give-me” culture. Because nothing comes without a price tag, even American Christians don’t like to get breakthroughs the biblical way. We want it served to us. However, the Bible teaches that we must “put off” the old man and “put on” the new man. That’s not easy. But its the only way to see God work on our behalf.
Make a sacrifice today and watch what God does for you. It really works.
