Have you ever parked your car and accidentally left on the headlights? Well, you will know that if you did not go back to your car for a while, the chances are that when you do return your battery would be dead and you will need a Good Samaritan to give you a jump start.
Sometimes finding that person may be very difficult. However, most of the times we eventually find someone who is able to help us. They hook up the jumper cables from their battery to our dead battery and the strength of their battery starts our car. After a short while our battery would then be charged up enough to start functioning like a brand new battery.
This is very much the way our spiritual life works.
Most of us are dead spiritually like the battery because we have not turned off our headlights, which represents sin in our life. The bible says the wages of sin is death. We need a jump start to bring us back to life. That jump start is Jesus Christ. The Good Samaritan is the Holy Spirit working in a believer in Christ.
The jumper cable is the gift of God which is salvation.
Once we get hooked up with the cable or we accept the gift of God (salvation), we are now able to receive Jesus Christ in our life. From the time we receive Him in our life we will notice a change as if we are now alive and ready to do the things that we are called to do. Our spirit is now alive and we will hunger for His word. When we understand how much God loves us, that He sent His only Son to die for our sakes, so that whosoever believes in Him will not die but have eternal life, we cannot help but start loving Him sincerely.
My friends, I urge you to get a Jump Start in your lives today. It will be the most wonderful experience you will have and there will be no regrets. Have a relationship with God, because this is the reason He created us. He loves us and all He wants is for us to love Him in return.
