A Spritual lesson from a jar of peanut butter

    I was thinking about this the other day, as a child when we would get a new jar of peanut butter and of course i couldnt open it my dad would take it and strain and try and strain then hand it back to me saying " son i cant get it open, try again"  so i would try again and of course it would open and my dad would say "boy you are strong, way to go" of course the strength that opended that peanut butter jar wasnt mine in the least, but my dad enjoyed watching me victoriously open that jar even though it was he that supplied the initial strength to do it.   

     In our Christian walk, we are supplied with faith from God,  He clothes us with righteousness that is not our own,  He leads and guides us on the right path, He opens our eyes to spiritual truths, He convicts us when we sin, He corrects us so we may be partakers of his holiness, nothing can separate us from His love, It is Him that works in us to wil for His good pleasure and in the end,   He tells us   "WELL DONE, GOOD AND FAITHFUL SERVANT" we get praise  from the very one  that gave us everything we have pertaining to Godliness and holiness  so we could serve Him with our whole heart.   What an awsome heavenly father we have!  .

The peanut butter (Holy Spirit) is what is inside.

The Son is the vessel (the jar).

The Father is the provider.
