Rev. Jeremy Batchelor discusses the difference between trying to live righteously under your own power verses living for God by his power. All too often we rely on ourselves to act good while ignoring things such as prayer and spending time with God. We are manually trying to live for God and all too often we fail. However, unlike professional photographers, we were not intended to live on manual. God has shown us time after time in His word that we are not and cannot be professional Christians. Instead jesus came to earth and died to assist us in living a righteous life. The autofocus on the camera is intended to focus the image on your subject for you. If we draw close to God he will assist us in keeping our eyes on Him and His word which will result in us living a righteous life.
