A Glass Can Only Spill What it Contains
I am listening to a great song by mewithoutYou. The title is “A Glass can only Spill what it Contains” and it is one of my favorite songs ever. This song is something that has been on my mind for a while now. The point of it is that what is in me with come out of me.
A friend of mine told me that he wants to radiate Christ so that that when people see him they can’t help but notice Christ. I must say that this is a great goal to have because showing Christ to a Christ-less world is important. In order to radiate Christ, however, don’t we need to be filled with Him? I would answer yes and I am sure my friend agrees.
Now back to the song. A glass can only spill what it contains is so simple yet profound because many of us, Christians, try to act like Christ followers and so often we fall short. I know that I fall short of that many times and the thing I have noticed is that when life bumps into you the essence of who you are gets spilled out and people take notice. If I am filled with myself, and that is ugly, and life shakes me what is going to come out? Ugliness!
A glass can only spill what it contains.
