THE POWER PLANT AND THE LIGHT BULB
There is but one God, the Father, from whom all things came and for whom we live; and there is but one Lord, Jesus Christ, through whom all things came and through whom we live. -1 Cor. 8:6
This is a great mystery that we accept by faith, but I have discovered a metaphor that helps me grasp the mystery to a small degree, as the parable of the vine and the branches helps me understand the mystery of my living in Christ and His living in me.
God the Father is like a power plant living in my spirit. The Holy Spirit, then, is the electricity that carries the power, and Jesus Christ is the light. It is His light that He tells me to let shine before men. It’s not my own light.
