Davidisms: Thermometer or Thermostat?

Thermometer or thermostat?


Your life is one or the other.


A thermometer measures the temperature inside you. A thermostat regulates the temperature outside of you.


That’s how life works as well. You are either a thermometer or a thermostat.


If you are in Christ, you are a new creation (2 Corinthians 5:17). You are being controlled from the inside/out. Controlled from within by the power of the Holy Spirit. Like a thermometer.


The other option is that you are being conformed to the patterns of this world - with all its evil and corruption—like a thermostat. And this conforming is happening from the outside/in.


Which is it for you? Is the world or the Word making you who you are?


Christ or culture?


Thermometer or thermostat?


Which are you?
