Motivational Minute – The Power Source

This proposal pleased the whole company. So they chose Stephen, a man full of faith and the Holy Spirit, and Philip, Prochorus, Nicanor, Timon, Parmenas, and Nicolaus, a convert from Antioch. Acts 6:5 (CSB)

Now Stephen, full of grace and power, was performing great wonders and signs among the people. Acts 6:8 (CSB)

Hi, I’m Laura Lacey Johnson.

One day while packing for a trip, I got a text from a friend with some practical advice.

She reminded me to pack my cell phone charger. 

She knew I had a lot on my mind and could easily forget my phone’s power supply.

You and I have something in common with a cell phone.

If we stay away from our power source too long, we lose the ability to function as designed.

Many of us keep our cell phones charged up but let our spiritual battery run low.

I’m inspired by the people mentioned in Acts chapter six. Some are described as being “full of faith and the Holy Spirit” and others as “full of grace and God’s power.”

What are you doing to keep your faith fully charged?
