                                                                    Psalm 108:3-5
I will praise you, Lord, among the nations;
    I will sing of you among the peoples.
 For great is your love, higher than the heavens;
    your faithfulness reaches to the skies.
 Be exalted, O God, above the heavens;
    let your glory be over all the earth

Back packs
Coffee Cups
All carry valuable or needed items. They are transporters of what is placed in them whether it be books, phone numbers, money, or Twin Valley Coffee. They are also temporary holders as things are often placed in to only be taken out or used.  When we receive Christ as our Savior we then become his vessels. He gets to place in us his spirit and to the measure that he sees fit. As I read over the above verses the other day I was lead to contemplate the last verse about God’s glory being over all the earth. If Christ in us is the Hope of Glory, If we are the vessels of this light we need to carry with care that which we are given and also be willing to be used at God’s discretion. What will his glory over the earth look like?  Is it when we all proclaim Christ is Lord? As the bearers of his image when we sing his praises among the nations and sing of Him among the peoples are we being vessels to help spread his glory? Conversely when I do not sing his praises, when I am complaining am I then being a leaky container, spilling out the good stuff making it unusable.

To them God has chosen to make known among the Gentiles the glorious riches of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory. Colossians 1:27
