Refuel the Heart

On June 23, 2001, the Boeing Company finished a labor of love-the complete restoration of the last existing 307 Stratoliner. It was the world’s first pressurized commercial airliner. Only 10 were made.

A New York company used a vintage loom to reproduce the original Pan Am wall fabric. An interior company put in the flooring, carpeting, and paneling. They even imported Scottish leather for the single-aisle and crew seats. All the light fixtures, bulkheads, and trims were manufactured form the original engineering drawings. Everything was done to perfection.

Six months later the aircraft crash-landed in Seattle’s Elliot Bay. Were there problems with the ancient engines? Did the dated tail and wing controls fail? No, they worked without a hitch. The problem was an operator error; the crew had failed to refuel the engines.

When it come to learning God’s Word, appearances don’t matter. It’s what’s on the inside that counts. How do you work on you “inside”? How do you transform your thoughts, improve your attitude, and soften your heart? The Bible of course! You need to refuel your heart every day with new insights from God. Reading two chapters a day will allow you to read through the whole New Testament in one year and will also give you the foundation you need for your everyday life!

Matt 4:1-4 Then Jesus was led up by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil. And when He had fasted forty days and forty nights, afterward He was hungry. Now when the tempter came to Him, he said, “If You are the Son of God, command that these stones become bread.” But He answered and said, “It is written, ‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.
