A recent sermon is hanging with me. It was delivered by Dr. Millard Box. He’s 100 years young and has been preaching the Word of GOD for 85 years.
An amazing man! He says he looks for GOD in everything. And he gave us examples. Motor Oil stuck with me.
Motor oil. It eradicates friction he said.
The HOLY SPIRIT of GOD. He is the Supreme Oil that eradicates friction.
From Free Dictionary: Eradicate 1. To tear up by the roots: 2. To get rid of; eliminate:
From Free Dictionary: Friction Conflict, as between persons having dissimilar ideas or interests; clash.
James 4 (CJB)
1 What is causing all the quarrels and fights among you? Isn’t it your desires battling inside you?
And what will eradicate the friction?
1 Corinthians 12:13 (CJB)
13 For it was by one Spirit that we were all immersed into one body, whether Jews or Gentiles, slaves or free; and we were all given the one Spirit to drink.
Romans 15:6 (CJB)
6 so that with one accord and with one voice you may glorify the God and Father of our Lord Yeshua the Messiah.
Acts 1:14 (CJB)
14 These all devoted themselves single-mindedly to prayer, along with some women, including Miryam (Yeshua’s mother), and his brothers.
Motor oil. Who would have thought getting an oil change in our cars could remind us of GOD? Obviously, Dr. Box. I am so grateful for his way of looking at everyday things.
I’m going to be looking for my own motor oils today. 🙂
