Flip the switch!

Have you ever had one of those "AHA" moments? Where the light bulb suddenly just turns on? ( excuse the pun ).. I had one of those the other day. We were doing a Science week at school with the  kids I teach, and one of the Scientists we studied was Thomas Edison- who's epic invention surely set the course of modern commercial electronics.. Just by the way.. The first light bulb was actually invented in the 1800's by Humphrey Davy who made the 'arc lamp' BUT Edison was the first man to construct a practical commercial Light Bulb as we know it today..(: 

  Later that day I was just spending time in God's word, and John 5 v 14-16  really ministered to me... 
" You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hid. Neither do men light a candle and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick: and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. Let your light shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven."

What a powerful scripture! I had a good laugh imagining all of us walking around like little light bulbs with arms and legs...(:  but what I really came to  realize was that similar to a light bulb that doesn't merely generate it's own electrical current- We cannot either..we can only be the light of the world, IF we are plugged into the power source.. You see, when we were born again- our Spirits became eternally changed, transformed, and on a spiritual level we can now relate to God, and are plugged into God- into the main hub, the power plant! 

A light bulb merely relays an electrical current and does what it was CREATED to do- TO SHINE! It fulfills it's function to create light and in so doing glorifies the power source and the wonder of electricity.. 

As God's children it's life changing to realize that we are always plugged into Christ. There is never a short circuit, never a black out... never HAPANA ZESA ( No power in Shona   lol... )   May we just remember to flip the switch and let the powerful current of the Holy Spirit flow through us.
