It’s time to empty ourselves of ourselves.
We are probably are familiar with the saying: “you can’t pour from an empty cup…”, right? Sometimes the cup isn’t truly empty. Sometimes the cup is full our ourselves: our plans, our desire, and our will. If we are the only contents of our cup, it is truly empty.
Do we leave room for the Lord in our cup? Not only should He be the center, but He must also be the content of our cup:
The love of God through Jesus Christ is what fills our cups. The quote of pouring from an empty cup often charges us to take a nap, get mani/pedi, or get a cup of coffee. None of those things are bad at all-however, it all starts with Christ!
The love that covers a multitude of sins, the love that shed its blood on Calvary, and the love that gave His One and Only Son so that we could be in greater relationship with Him-that is what must first fill our cups.
The filling of Christ’s love for us is what completes us, reconstructs our will to please Him, and molds our desires to satisfy our spirit rather than our flesh-this in our cups will truly change our lives.
Peace and Blessings
