The Difference You Can Make

May 15, 2012

2 Corinthians 4:6-7
For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ.
But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us.

The Difference You Can Make

You walk the surface of the earth.
You breath the air of its atmosphere.
You look upon both its beauty and its ugliness.
You live among the good and bad of it.

You are its hope and salvation, or
You are its continued demise and destruction.
What you carry in your heart,
Is life or death to those around you.

You are a vessel, a container, a being.
What is your vessel and being filled with?
What is it releasing into the earth?
What are the fruit of it contents?

Those in Christ contain a treasure,
These earthen jars contain His presence.
Unreleased it stagnates and molds.
Selfishness perverts its glory.

Vessels of Christ poured out.
Now that will change the earth.
That will fill it with life and glory.
That will bring heaven to earth.
