Thursday March 31 John 8:21-32
Do you know how a governor works on an engine? It is a device or mechanism that
limits or restricts or governs the output of the motor. For example, under some rules for racing cars the various vehicles will be restricted (or governed) to a certain horsepower to make the race more equitable.
You might imagine what happens if the governor is removed. That means that the engine can now perform at maximal capacity without restriction or limitations. So want does that have to do with our Lenten study or with the passage we just read?
Take a look at the end of the passage to verse 31-32. “Then, (when you hold to the teaching of Jesus and become his disciple) you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” The parenthesis is my addition to Scripture. Forgive me for adding to the sacred word but I think you get the point. Perhaps you would be willing to ask this question….what ‘faith limitations (governors) are currently restricting my spiritual horsepower?
