Last Friday I met with a good friend so that we could encourage one another in the Lord, and spend some time in prayer. Somewhere along the way, he asked me a question someone had asked him sometime back: "Are you living on 110, or 220?"
"Huh?" I responded.
"Well," he said, "Galatians 1:10 says, 'For am I now seeking the approval of man, or of God? Or am I trying to please man? If I were still trying to please man, I would not be a servant of Christ.' So, to live on 110 is to live in the fear of others."
"Hmm, I get it - living on 110 is not a good thing!"
"On the other hand," he continued, "Galatians 2:20 says, 'I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself up for me.' So, to live on 220 is to live by faith in Jesus Christ."
"I see - living on 220 is a great thing!"
So, are you living on 110 or 220?
