This a picture of conduit. Notice the nice uniform bends. (Don’t look too close, they aren’t perfect). Conduit usually comes in 10′ straight sticks. It’s made to be bent and cut. It’s purpose is to protect the wires inside. It’s the way electricians can safely get power from a source to where ever it’s needed.
Christians are a sort of conduit. We distribute Gods power, his love, mercy, forgiveness, healing and supply. We distribute it from the source to the need. If we don’t let God mold, shape, shorten, bend or extend us He may not reach the people that need Him. We need to be submitted to The Craftsman’s hands so we can be put to good use.
“For we are God’s handiwork, (workmanship) created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.”
