The Upward Look, by Jon Forrest (Adapted from Charles Swindoll)
Connection Matters

The story is told of a man from a remote mountain village who had the opportunity to visit a large modern city for the first time. He could not bring much home with him, and he had little money. But he was amazed at the electric lights which he saw everywhere. So he bought a sack full of electric light bulbs and sockets with switches so he could turn them off and on.

Arriving home he hung the light bulbs in front of his home and on his and his neighbor’s trees. Everyone watched him with curiosity and asked him what he was doing, but he just smiled and said, "Just wait until dark--you’ll see." When night came, he turned on the switches, but nothing happened. No one had told him about electricity. He did not know the light bulbs were useless unless connected to the source of their power.

Jesus said, "Apart from me you can do nothing." There are many people who do not know that their way they are living is useless. They got the education; they got the job; they made the family; and bought the home, but when the sunsets and night falls, they reach for the switch, but nothing happens. They do not know that there is a source, which makes all these things light up!

Connection makes the difference.

This Sunday we will share a message titled, Dead or Alive based on John 15:5-8. Join us for a great time of worship, praise, fellowship and CONNECTION.

Connecting with you to Jesus,
