The Light Comes through the Cracks
But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us. 2 Corinthians 4:7
In Brenna's message yesterday she quoted that verse from 2 Corinthians, where Paul emphasizes that in our weakness and brokenness, God shines through. She also quoted the legendary musician Leonard Cohen: “Forget your perfect offering - There’s a crack in everything - that’s how the light gets in…”
How articulate are you of the cracks in your own heart and soul - and can you see the light coming through? Perhaps one simple step in allowing more light to come through is to share your cracks with someone else, and to receive grace from them. Ponder what it might look like to share your weaknesses, failures, and sins with another person - basically, to take off the mask and to be human with them, allowing them to see the cracks in you. May God shine through the grace they give you in that moment.
