Did you see the recent news article that the Nokia 3310 feature phone is being re-released this year?  That's right, this classic phone that many of us carried 15 years ago has been upgraded.  No, it's not a breakable, power-hungry smart phone (really, who likes being tethered to a wall outlet?), but it does have a camera, headphone jack, durability, one month long standby time, and a price-tag of $52. In an age where everyone wants bigger, better, and bolder this simple phone with long-lasting power might have a chance.

The Old Testament covenant seemed bogged down with lots of features, abilities, and the need to be tied to your local power source, the physical temple.  Aren't you glad for God's New Covenant that pares things down to simplicity ("Greatest Commands of Love" Matthew 22:36-40) and gives us freedom from a stronger internal power source? Consider this writing of truth, "Do you not know that you are a temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you?" (1 Corinthians 3:16)  Today, spend time praising God for the simplicity of the Gospel and the strong internal Power of the Spirit.  You'll be glad you did.
