Powerful Performance

Last week my elbow suddenly swelled, and I was diagnosed with bursitis. My doctor prescribed a round of steroids, and the swelling soon subsided.

This is just background information that leads me to say this: Yesterday was the first Sunday I ever preached under the influence of performance-enhancing drugs. The elders of our church have been suggesting for years that I try something like this. After my effort yesterday, the congregation unanimously wants me to stay on steroids. However, I don’t think my doctor will go along with it.

Seriously, the only thing we Christians need to enable a powerful performance is the Holy Spirit of God working in us!

“To this end I strenuously contend with all the energy Christ so powerfully works in me.”—Colossians 1:29.
