This week’s topic: The Power Of The Spirit
A popular show aired on MTV a few years ago called “Boiling Points”, where everyday people were unknowingly tested while being recorded on hidden camera. The point was to see how much each person could endure without “losing it” and reaching their boiling point. Those who did endure were rewarded at the end with a cash prize. The show was very popular and even addicting. Watching people’s reactions under pressure is a trip! Those high-pressure situations allow us to see what is REALLY inside of people – even ourselves. Some would start out patient and grow impatient gradually. Others would respond with threats and profanity. Some even reached the point of a near violent response. So here is my question to you today: What is YOUR boiling point?
What’s a boiling point? Glad you asked. When you put a pot of water on the stove, there is pressure all around its atmosphere. We call that pressure gravity. There is also pressure inside of the water in the pot. When the water inside matches the pressure of gravity outside, the water begins to boil and reach its highest temperature—its boiling point. Let’s parallel this with spiritual things. In our everyday scope of life, there are pressures, seen and unseen all around us that attempt to weigh us down in our endeavors to be like Christ.
