Pay Before You Pump

Standing in the cold speaking to Jesus as I gassed up my car this morning, I had a revelation.
If you did not read my blog insufficient funds, basically I discussed my need for deeper connection with Christ. I discovered that I continue to make withdrawals on my spiritual account without making deposits.
This morning at the pump it was a extenuation of that thought.
I saw the following sticker on the gas pump that we see it many gas stations.

It got me to thinking how many times have I tried to get spiritual fuel without actually paying for it.

Paying comes from connection to Christ; it comes from knowing Jesus closely; it comes from discipline in staying in his Word it comes from consistent prayer.
Don’t be surprised when you feel as though you are running on empty. Have you checked your tank? Have you too been essentially trying to get fueled up without making payment?
Oh and guess what this pump is Old  School. You can’t swipe and go pay at the pump style. 
Are you standing at the pump trying to fuel up without seeing the cashier first?

As of this posting, Ash Wednesday is tomorrow. Maybe these next 40 days of the Lenten season are a great time for you to balance your account….to make some deposits, to pay the cashier, to get filled up!
