Are You a Glove for God?
“I am holding a glove in my hand. It is made of the finest leather, but this glove was made for a purpose; it was made to be worn on my hand. Apart from me this glove can do nothing. Despite its high quality of design and materials, its fashion and its form – it is nothing until I place my hand inside of it. Once that occurs, then and only then does the glove fulfill its purpose. And with my hand placed securely inside the glove, the glove can now do whatever my hand can do while wearing it.
Thus it could be said that my hand in the glove is the glove’s ‘hope of glory’ (Col 1:27); that is, the glove’s only opportunity of fully becoming what it was made to be.
The same is true and you and me. We were made for a purpose; one that will never be realized apart from our Lord Jesus Christ. Once Christ puts His presence and power into our lives – then we can do whatever Christ can do through us.” ‘I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me!’ (Php 4:13). ~ James Ryle, director of TruthWorks Ministries
