If you only look at us, you might well miss the brightness. We carry this precious Message around in the unadorned clay pots of our ordinary lives. That's to prevent anyone from confusing God's incomparable power with us.
2 Corinthians 4:7
Whatever we speak to in the people around us, that is the very thing that will rise up and grow into something magnificent. If you speak to nobility, then they will rise up to be noble. If you speak to their holy nature, then holiness come through by Jesus being revealed. If we speak to the power of God in them, then they will be powerful! This is what He does for me. My Heavenly Father speaks beauty over my ashes. He covers my sins in grace. He brings my dead bones to life and lifts me up on wings of eagles. He sits me on a heavenly throne and crowns me with a golden crown. He wraps me in a robe of righteousness! He sees me with a pure, clean heart, because He loves me with a love that is never ending.
We carry this amazing love inside of our hearts, this precious Message. It is power. And, with that power, we can change the world. Ordinary lives with incomparable power. I've experienced love like this, first from God and then from Him loving me through His people. It is a power that wins against all odds.
Be open to His love today, and share it's brightness.
