What if there was no water flowing? Would that area be as awesome?
Some dams are used to create electricity for people to use. A dam needs flowing water to turn large turbines to create electricity. Without a source of water, they cannot do all of what they were meant to do. They would just be a large wall of cement. (Hoover Dam is Pictured Below)
The Holy Spirit helps us to do what God wants us to do. Without His Spirit flowing in and through us, we cannot do all the things we were built to do. When we commit our lives to Jesus, God gives us spiritual gifts. These are things we can only do with God's Holy Spirit and power.
Don't make the huge mistake of living your life without the gifts God meant for you to have. Through Jesus we can receive these gifts from God and serve out our true purpose. Don't ignore the spiritual side of life. You are more than a large wall of cement.
