Thermometer and Thermostat

Years ago I heard a preacher comparing the functionalities of a thermometer and a thermostat to the Christian’s life. The thermostat adjusts the temperature when the temperature is at a particular value, while the thermometer only has the capability to measure the temperature.

In the sermon, the preacher was urging the listeners to be like the thermostat and play their part to make a difference in the world.

So recognizing the times that we are in (like the thermometer) we are called to be positive influences for God’s Kingdom (like the thermostat); and God has equip us.

It is comforting to know that we can go forward confidently in God’s power and make a difference for Him in this world today.
