The year was 1963 and Cassius Clay released a comedy album called "I Am the Greatest." I remember that release and the laughter I experienced. Six months later he won the world heavyweight championship in boxing. Indeed at the time... he was the greatest. But what is the greatest thing we need today. Here it is... "And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love."

It was June in 1872 that Annie Hawks wrote the word of the beautiful old hymn, "I Need Thee Every Hour." She wrote at that time... "One day as a young wife and mother of 37 years of age, I was busy with my regular household tasks during a bright June morning in 1872. Suddenly, I became so filled with the sense of nearness to the Master that, wondering how one could live without Him, either in joy or pain, these words were ushered into my mind, the thought at once taking full possession of me -- 'I Need Thee Every Hour. . . .'"

So I just bought a rechargeable vacuum cleaner for my car. I like to keep my car clean for my Uber and Lyft passengers. My previous vacuum cleaner was a 12 Volt one and had a long and sometimes clumsy cord to deal with. But one thing for sure... I'll need to make sure I keep the new one charged or I may be in a pickle at times. It's the same with our spiritual lives. We must be constantly recharging our faith so that we can be useable for God and the moments needed.

I remember when growing up as a child playing Hide and Seek. After counting to one hundred, the seeker would say; "Ready or not here I come." The seeker would then find those hiding and another round would begin. But today I want to talk about those who are seeking truth... seeking Christ and that we as believers should not be hiding, but be ready to engage the seekers who need the truth of the Gospel.

Revelation 22:20 says; "He who testifies to these things says, “Surely I am coming quickly.” Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus! I find great encouragement in those words in the times we are living in. Yesterday was Easter where we celebrated the resurrection of Jesus from the dead. But with all the rejoicing of the believers in Jesus day, He was soon to ascend into Heaven. Can you imagine how their feelings went back and forth within them. He's dead... He's alive... He's gone again... but... He's coming back! Be encouraged today by the "...blessed hope and glorious return of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ!"
