What you are about to read was inspired by a sermon given by Dr. Tony Evans. Many of you may not have heard of him and even fewer have heard him speak. I hope that after reading this you may be lead to seek him out on Facebook, visit his website tonyevans.org or catch one of his sermons on YouTube.
Speaking on pressure: If a ship is wrecked and goes to the bottom of the ocean it is crushed and destroyed. A submarine, however, can glide along the bottom and it will not be crushed and its contents will be kept safe. It is all a matter of pressure. The pressure inside of the submarine is equal to or greater than the pressure applied to it from outside forces.
People are the same way. If you do not have something inside of you that has an equal or greater force to what is pressing on you from the outside, you will be crushed. We have seen it time and again in lives destroyed by what people allow into themselves from the outside. Drugs, alcohol, and foods that are loaded with ingredients that are not good for us. They eat away at the mind, body and spirit. Families are lost. Lives crumble- some slowly and some at the speed of light.
The good news is that you can get instantly re-pressurized if you are filled with the Holy Spirit. Sometimes it may take a while for your flesh to catch up and your body to recover from the poison this world feeds you under the guise of a “good time,” “great feeling” and “yummy taste,” but it will. It will recover even faster when you refuse to ingest more of the alluring poison that has been sold to you under the guise of being “no big deal” or “everybody does it”. It IS a BIG deal and NO, everybody does not do it.
The best Health Care you will ever receive is completely and totally free of charge. If you haven’t had an external blood transfusion (been washed in the blood of the lamb), I urge you to do so. NO basket filled with the best quality chocolate and jelly beans can EVER compare to the gift given on the first Easter.
