Oct 11 – The Missing Engine

Thieves in Marlborough New Zealand broke into a car parked outside a local auto repair shop and began crossing wires to attempt to start the car and make off with it. But it wouldn’t start. It’s engine had been removed for repairs. There’s a lesson here for all of us. We need to make sure there’s an engine aboard if we hope to get anywhere. And most important of all, we need to make sure that we have the proper connection to God, if we hope to make it into heaven when our life on earth is over. But there is a way to know. John was inspired to write, “these things I have written to you …that you may know that you have eternal life.” And in order to have that assurance, we need a proper connection to God. We are told “He who has the Son has life.” And” If our lives are merely connect to religion, church attendance, baptism or good works, we’re not going anywhere. Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”
