I have been crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself up for me. Galatians 2:20 (NASB)

Have you ever gave much thought to the development of batteries? The differences in battery type and size over the decades is quite startling. Take hearing aid batteries for example which had to be worn in a holder strapped to your chest, now they are smaller than the now defunct half penny coin. The holy grail of battery research nowadays is long life electric batteries for vehicles, but even the latest rechargeable batteries expire eventually. No one has yet designed the perfect battery.

It was while meditating on Galatians 2:20 I remembered once when I was not just given a new battery…I got a battery upgrade! It was the night I accepted Jesus as my Lord and Saviour thurty-six years ago. I remember that night clearly, I sang the chorus “It Is No Longer I Who Lives” all the way home. I had become a new creation in Jesus Christ.

Dear reader, when we accept Christ He enters our heart immediately. Our old battery has been replaced with the World’s first and only Eternal battery. The fuel source of the Eternal battery is our faith in its Creator, God Almighty. Our new battery lives and breathes, the living Son of God loves us and guides us every day forever.

  1. Thank you again for the gentle beauty of what you express on this site. I love your pictures and your nurturing expressions of faith. I affirm everything you have written. Life in Christ is a whole new life existence. Blessings! Matua-O-Terangi ……A Maori pastor in New Zealand says it means a blessing from Heaven that we cannot fully express with our words.. Several years ago he was praying it over the sea and explained when I asked him. Across the miles and sea to you MATUA-O-TERANGI. Carried on the wind of HIS LOVE. amen

    1. Faye you really are a Barnabas, a true encourager with a heart of gold. I really love that Maori blessing from the pastor, that is so special. You should write that as a post Faye, if not I would love to. I love New Zealand, it is a beautiful country.
      “MATUA-O-TERANGI, God bless you sister.

  2. I’m just laughing with joy, Alan, as I read your blog: once again we are in step, always from a slightly different perspective (sorry about the mixed metaphor – I can’t think of a more elegant way of saying this). Thank you so much for your lovely blog, and for sharing your beautiful personal memory xxxxxx
