“Therefore, Jesus said again, “Very truly I tell you, I am the gate for the sheep. All who have come before me are thieves and robbers, but the sheep have not listened to them. I am the gate; whoever enters through me will be saved. They will come in and go out, and find pasture. The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.” – John 10:7-10 NIV

Back in the 1960’s, there was a TV commercial by Esso (today’s Exxon and Mobile oil companies) featuring a tiger that asked, “What’s in your tank?” They wanted to put a tiger in your tank, or in other words, buy their high-energy Esso Extra gasoline that “uncages the power of your engine.” So, this week we ask, “What’s in your spiritual tank?” God wants to fill you up with this Holy Spirit power. Uncage the power that is already available to you! Put a Holy Spirit tiger in your tank!
