Hold up the chem.-light for everyone to see and say. Let’s use this chem-light as an example. This chem-light is designed to shine light in a dark area. It consists of a plastic container and we can see a fluid inside but it is not fulfilling its purpose. It is not giving off light. It is only reflecting the environment around it. It is not having any impact of its own on the surrounding environment. We can shake it up but still it does not shine. But, if we look a little closer we see that deep down inside the chem.-light there is another container that holds another mixture of chemicals. The chem.-light will only fulfill its purpose when it is broken and the inner filling flows throughout the rest of the body. Then it shines a bright light in the midst of a dark world.


So it is also with a Christian. You may have the indwelling of the Holy Spirit which is Christ in you but are you allowing Him to shine through your life onto the lives of others? Like the chem.-light we must be broken for Him to shine. We must come to the breaking point where pride and selfishness gives way to humility.
