Power (Audio Message)

September 3rd, 2006

Physical strength. Celebrity. Wealth. Title. Political. Military. These are just a few examples of power.

Power, in and of itself, is neutral. It can be used to accomplish good or perpetrate evil. Humanly speaking, power is dangerous because it plays to our pride. We like the feeling we get when someone points to us and says, “That person is in charge.”

If we think of ourselves as powerful in any way, chances are power has become an idol in our life. We need to remember there’s only One all-powerful, and it’s not us.

A look at the temptations of power and how we can have tremendous influence in the lives of others, even if we live our entire life in one place.
