WE ALL KNOW WHAT HAPPENS  WHEN WE LEAVE THE CORDLESS PHONES, TOOLS, AND APPLIANCES OFF THEIR POWER BASES.    THEY BECOME WEAK, POWERLESS, UNABLE TO DO ANYTHING. GOD HAS GIVEN JESUS CHRIST TO THIS CORDLESS WORLD IN WHICH WE ,LIVE........... GOD KNEW FROM THE TIME HE TRIED TO FIND ADAM AND EVE HIDING IN THE GARDEN, THAT WE, AS CORDLESS PERSONS, WERE GOING TO NEED A POWER-CHARGING BASE.  GOD KNEW WE WOULD HAVE TO RETURN TO OUR SPIRITUAL BEGINNINGS TO RECEIVE FORGIVENESS AND RENEWAL, AND BE RECHARGED FOR LIVING AND SERVING GOD AND OTHERS.    HOW CAN WE SURVIVE IN A CORDLESS WORLD? HOW CAN ANY OF ALL OF US BECOME CHALLEHGED AND SERIOUS ABOUT THE CHURCH'S MISSION AND MINISTRY?       THE ANSWER IS FOUND IN THE SIMPLE VERSE OF JESUS' WORDS .JESUS WITNESSES OUR WEARY, WORN-OUT LIVES, AND HE KNOWS THE NEEDS WE HAVE.  JESUS FIRST WITNESSED HIS WEARY, WORN-OUT DISCIPLES RETURNING TO HIM LONG AGO.   OUR LORD LIVED FIRSTHAND THE SAME DEMANDS, THE SAME REJECTION, THE SAME RIDICULE, AS WELL AS, THE THINGS THAT WE FIND OURSELVES LIVING TODAY. JESUS KNOWS , IDENTIFIES WITH, AND FULLY UNDERSTANDS HOW TIRING AND TAXING OUR LIVES CAN BE. JESUS' ADVICE TO HIS FIRST TWELVE DISCIPLES ;LONG AGO IS TIMELESS ADVICE FOR EACH  US THIS VERY DAY, WHEREVER WE FIND OURSELVES TO BE  AND WHEREEVER OUR LIVES SEEM TOBE GOING.  JESUS SAYS TO EACH OF US, " COME AWAY TO A DESERTED PLACE ALL BY YOURSELVES AND REST A WHILE"    SOMEHOW   WE DON'T WANT TO HEAR THOSE WORDS,. WE ALL HAVE EXCUSES, . WE CLAIM WE DON'T HAVE TIME TO COME AWAY. WE WORK TWO JOBS.... THE WEEKENDS ARE OUR ONLY CHANCE TO SLEEP IN, DO THE HOUSEHOLD CHORES,  GO GOLFING AND BOATING. WE'RE BUSY PEOPLE.    WE 'VE BECOME A DRAINED WORLD OF DETACHED PEOPLE. WE'VE BECOME COUPLES WHO DON'T CONNECT WITH EACH OTHER, PARENTS WHO DON'T CONNEST WITH OUR CHILDREN, CHILDREN WHO NO LONGER CONNECT WITH ONE ANOTHER. AS A CORDLESS WORLD WE NEED SO BADLY TO CONNECT WITH GOD THROUGH JESUS CHRIST.
