Visual: Old Basketball “Never-Flat Basketball + Air Needle
Have you noticed how life has a way of deflating us? Day in and day out the labor of work, the frustration of bills, the concern for our health, the grind of traffic and vehicle trouble can drain the air right out of us. Add in a generous dose of our own sin, and the squeeze upon our lives increases.
Deflation is fast and powerful! It’s hard to live without air! But when you come in contact with the Living God and grab hold of the life giving cross, the Holy Spirit radically intervenes. He gives you a new life, a life that won’t ever go at. If you stand here deflated today, isn’t it time to trade in your old life, with all the leaks, for a life that holds tight?
“… be filled with the Spirit.” Eph 5:18
What could in ate your soul tonight?
