June 4, 2023

I ordered a beautiful blown glass chandelier for my dining room. I was so excited to see it hung and assembled; however, it didn't light up after connecting it to power. There was no point in putting it together if you couldn't turn it on. Not only that, but some of the glass came broken. So, we are returning it and getting another one; hopefully, we won't have the same issue. A light that doesn't work is useless no matter how pretty it is; though it might look like a work of art, its light is what gives it life. 

As a Christ-follower, you must keep your light for him burning bright; he is what makes you beautiful. You can put on your Sunday best and have your hair perfectly coffered, but without Jesus, you are like a blown incandescent bulb with a black spot inside. I was looking forward to having a lovely fixture, much like the valuable vessels of gold and silver for honorable use, as a part of my home, but it turned out to be dishonorable. Part of God's plan is for you to pursue righteousness, faith, love, and peace to become a useful vessel; don't disappoint him by blocking the light of Jesus in your life. 

Therefore, if anyone cleanses himself from what is dishonorable, he will be a vessel for honorable use, set apart as holy, useful to the master of the house, ready for every good work. So flee youthful passions and pursue righteousness, faith, love, and peace, along with those who call on the Lord from a pure heart. 2 Timothy 2:21-2:22
