Power is critical to getting anything done.  We need physical power to get out of bed in the morning and accomplish the tasks of the day.  We need electric power to provide light, heat, cooling, and to keep our electronics operating.  We need gasoline power to propel our vehicles.  Our world is reliant on the power of the sun to sustain life on our planet.  With this dependence on power for so many things, it should not be a surprise to learn that spiritual growth is also dependent on a form of power.
