Sometimes I get upset that we don’t live in the Jetson’s future that I thought would be a reality by 2017. There are no flying cars. There’s no robot maid. There isn’t a single pill to serve as an entire dinner. But what I wish for most is that automatic dental hygiene chair. You remember that? George Jetson sat down in a chair and a bunch of robotic arms came out and took care of his morning breath and gingivitis.
I hate the daily routine of flossing, rinsing and brushing every morning. And then I have to do it all again at bedtime. Isn’t there a more efficient way to keep my teeth clean and my breath at bay? Alas, there is not. I have to put in the time and the discipline.
And the same is true with our Expression #1 at Southland. If we want a transforming relationship with God, then we have to put in the time. But Bible Study and personal growth doesn’t come without some great resources. We’ve got a few things that serve as the electric toothbrushes of our spiritual lives.
