This is not a good time to forget your gloves. Having gloves serves no purpose if they are at home on the chair or in the closet. The gloves themselves are useless unless they are filled with hands. And the hands can't do much when they are frozen!
A Christian is like a glove. The glove cannot do anything by itself, but when my hand is in it, the glove can do many things. True, it is not the glove, but my hand in the glove that acts. It is God (the Holy Spirit in us) - the hand, who does the work.
You will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you.
~ Acts 1:8a (NRSV)
Yes, God could do the work without us. But He has chosen to work through us.
...and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, in all Judea and
Samaria, and to the ends of the earth. ~ Acts 1:8b (NRSV)
The glove must make room for the hand so that every finger in the glove is filled.
We need to make room in our lives to be filled with God every day.
The Hand in the glove is the best way to see God's power at work in our lives and in the lives of those God has put in our world.
