Millions have watched on television this past year the developing drama of terrorist hijackings. And many have spoken of a sense of powerlessness.
The feeling that one is merely watching events that are beyond one's control, is said to be widespread today. It may be time to ask ourselves whether circumstances make powerlessness, or whether a habit of passive helplessness creates the circumstances.
We can see that the feeling of powerlessness is the opposite of the spirit Christ Jesus' teachings convey. The Bible says, for example, that Jesus "returned in the power of the Spirit," that he "taught ... as one having authority," and that he gave his disciples "power and authority." Luke 4:14; Matt. 7:29; Luke 9:1.
