What You Can Learn From Your Smart Phone

I’ve been thinking today about how much I rely on my cell phone every day. I feel like I’m constantly reaching for my smart phone to talk to someone, text or email someone, or to research something. You are probably the same way. It’s amazing how far the phone has come since Motorola came out with the first public mobile phone in April of 1973. (I googled it on my smart phone). Yeah, the phone has come a long way and totally transformed how we use a phone, including how dependent we are today on our cell phone.

But if you want to use your cell phone tomorrow, you probably need to connect it to your charger tonight. Your cell phone is likely going to need new energy to work for you the next day. So you better make it lie down if you want to restore power to your battery. Otherwise it will not work.  

That’s true for you as well. If you don’t get your rest, it will affect your work. You are not going to have the strength you need to do the tasks you have if you don’t get some sleep. Furthermore, you’re not going to have the energy to do your work next week unless you have a day of rest. That’s why God prescribed it in His owner’s manual. Indeed, it’s included in God’s Rules 4 Life (Ten Commandments) —so it must be important!

When we lay our cell phone down to rest at the end of the day, we don’t place it just anywhere. We connect it to the power source so that it will be charged. We, too, will find rest when we are connected to our power source—the One who gives life and power! Jesus said, “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give your rest” (Matthew 11:28).Truly, here is where we find rest!

Devotedly yours,

Pastor Ron
