Have you ever turned on a table lamp on to find it doesn’t work? You’re left in the dark. So you tap the bulb. Nothing, You shake the lamp a bit harder. Still nothing. But when you put the light bulb in a different lamp, it work! So there’s nothing wrong with the bulb and there’s nothing wrong with the electricity.
The lamp itself must be broken. “Hey, I’m no dummy,” You say to yourself. “I can fix this.” Ha! I’ll unplug it do I won’t die!” But when you reach for the cord, you find it has been unplugged all the while! Groan.
Everything worked. The bulb was good, the lamp worked fine, and the power was on. But the cord wasn’t attached to the source of electricity. No power could flow into the lamp.
There’s a lesson to be learned here. You may look good, you may sound fine, but unless you’re attached to Almighty God by a relationship with Jesus, you’ve got absolutely no power for life!
ER- I guess you could be called a dim bulb.
Draw close to God in prayer and Bible study.
