Everybody, and I mean everybody, knows to turn something on you need to have a switch, some kind of button you push to get the gadget running. I looked at the iPad and then looked back to him and then I touched the screen just to show the salesperson that he did not have a clue as to what time of day it was. To my consternation as soon as I touched the screen the blasted thing came on. I did not look at the salesperson but I knew, deep down in my soul, I knew he was laughing rather sarcastically at me. Between cell phones and iPads, I am not faring too well in this gadget crazy world. Sometimes it is rather frustrating. Fortunately, God is not impressed with gadgets. The simplicity of the gospel message is found in what Paul says. "For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.” (Ephesians 2:8-9 KJV). Preoccupied with works, a person runs a great risk of missing the amazing grace of God. Tweet
