It is an exhilarating experience to live the new life with Christ within me enabling me to live it. As a man was riding along in his Ford, suddenly something went wrong. He got out and looked at the engine, but he could find nothing wrong. As he stood there another car came in sight, and he waved it down to ask for help. Out of a brand-new Lincoln stepped a tall friendly man who asked: “Well, what’s the rouble?” “I cannot get this Ford to move,” was the reply. The stranger made a few adjustments under the hood and then said: “Now start the car.” When the motor started, its grateful owner introduced himself and said: “What is your name, sir?” “My name,” answered the stranger, “Is Henry Ford.”
The one who made the Ford knew how to make it run. God made you and me, and He alone knows how to run your life and mine. We could make a complete wreck of our lives without Christ. When He is at the controls, all goes well. Without Him we can do nothing.
