We are earthen vessels with Heavenly Treasure and we take God with us where ever we go. If you can visualize a blackboard and a yellow piece of chalk.
When we start the day we invite God to be with us, usually through prayer or reading our bibles. (we believe starting the day with God is the best way to start the day, and ensures you don’t forget, as the fatigue of the day wears you down towards night) The yellow chalk would show the beginning of it’s journey across the blackboard, from left to right, left being the start of the day the right being the end of the day, the yellow chalk to symbolize the places we have been with Him.
Sometimes, as it is only humans fallible nature, we walk through the filth of the enemy, meaning that the yellow chalk line may change to brown or grey in parts. This is usually when we do something God would not like us doing, sin.
No yellow line can never remain pure, we all sin at times, no matter how much brown or grey is in it, God doesn’t given up on us.
For a Christian, we hope that when we look at the blackboard after our daily journey, our line is made up of a majority of yellow.
The yellow in this demonstration represents God’s light, the blackboard represents the darkness of the world system.
We need to take God’s light into the darkness. So that what was once all darkness, has now been changed through us, as vessel, who God uses to take His Light into darkness.
Each day we should try to make our Journey with God more committed, against our human nature, to fill as much of our day with God’s light, Hoping to shine some yellow onto other people’s blackboards. Giving them a starting point for their own walk with God, their own Journey of faith.
Let us all be challenged more, as we walk together as brothers and sisters in Christ, to become a people who are aware that we carry God with us. We in our own power can’t change much, but He can do a lot through us. If we’re willing!
BE WILLING - BE A VESSEL FOR HIS GLORY
Mathew 5 verse 14 to 16:
"You are the light of the world, a city situated on a hill cannot be hidden. No one lights a lamp and puts it under a basket, but rather a lamp-stand, and gives it light, for all in the house to see. In the same way let your light shine, before men, so that they may see your good works,and give glory to your Father in heaven."
