Do you remember when you thought you were pretending, hiding your nature pretty well, I can …but we weren’t !! People could see right through us. Our lives speaking volumes about us. It is as if we were living in glass houses. Our lives can be pretty messy with anger, hatred, pain, guilt, shame and all kinds of filth, making our glass houses dirty.
What happens when you shine perfect LIGHT through dirty glass??
You see darkly!
When little light gets through a window what do we do??
We reach for a cleansing agent!
(we must want the windows (our souls) to be CLEAN ..Can anyone say WINDEX ??? )
At one time we were BLIND …
We could not see what God had for us….
We were UNCLEAR….unsaved.
God is a gentleman He doesn’t force Himself on us.
We were walking around clouded, foggy, wrapped in obscurity, misunderstanding, feeling separated.
But when we ask Him to come into our lives HE WASHES THE GLASS HOUSE and makes it HIS HOME.
And like any good home owner He begins to decorate and paint creating the home into His own creation.
A reflection of Himself! (Did you know that your home is a reflection of you?…I better get the floor mopped!..lol)
Every stained-glass window is unique and interesting, beautiful in its own right.
Have you ever heard glass make music…like glass goblets being played???
The sound has tones of its own making harmonies of interesting combinations to hear.
I wonder if our lives after Christ moves in start to vibrate the sound of HIM who is the PERFECT PITCH??
and we transform into a sweet sounds to GOD’s ears….a sound of harmony.
1 Peter 2:5 you also, as living stones, are being built up as a spiritual house, a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.
I do believe that I remember GOD inhabits our praises….and praise to HIM is a sacrifice of our lips!!! WOOT!
1 Peter 2:9 But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may PROCLAIM the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous LIGHT.
Have a wonderful weekend!!
