Our pastor yesterday was talking about faith vs. feelings, and how if you depend on your feelings to walk your walk of faith you won’t get very far. He also compared the power of faith to the power definition in physics.
Now, I have not taken physics, but strangely enough, when he asked, what is power, in connection to faith (and then to physics in his discussion) I immediately thought not of the traditional definition of power, but of powers in math. (I’m taking college algebra right now); He said, “what is power,” and I thought, immediately, exponents and logarithms. HA HA!
But then I started thinking about it, and it is not that off base. One Christian has the power in himself/herself through Christ of the faith he/she has, and that is one person. But when you add exponents (powers) to a number, it not only adds, it multiplies. At a very fast rate.
So as people of faith and prayer, standing together, what can we do? Exponentially more than just addition. Let’s move mountains through prayer.
