Proverbs 27:17 NLT | “As iron sharpens iron, so a friend sharpens a friend.”
Our car once stopped suddenly in the middle of the road, while we headed somewhere with a friend. Actually four times. We figured it was a battery issue. Someone had stolen and replaced our brand new battery with a dead one, where the car was last worked on. We asked another friend to come jump start our battery, and follow us right behind till we got to our destination. Like from everything in life, I learnt a lesson that day.
A dead battery can’t jump start another battery. In our journey to Christ, the ‘wear and tear’ of living, can sometimes cause our ‘battery’ to go down. Our spiritual energy, fire, and passion, can get depleted by much interface with the world. Detach from relationships or atmospheres that can’t charge your spirit when you need a jump.
Receive grace to be the right person, to stay connected to the right people, and to the Holy Spirit, who is our source of power and passion!
