Conduit: someone or something that is used as a way of sending something (such as information or money) from one place or person to another
We don't need to become stronger. We need Sweet Surrender. We need His Love to flow through us and make us irresistably desirable to the lost. They will experience HIS LOVE flowing through us.
As I thought about those words, I asked myself this question. "What is flowing through my life?"
I need His love to flow through me. Not my own love which is imperfect and can even be self-seeking but God's love. I am not the source of this love, I am merely the conduit through which His love flows to a fallen and broken world which so desperately needs to know "The Good News".
In all honesty, there are many times when I am not a conduit of God's love. Instead I am a conduit of self. It is not about God. It is about me, about what I want, about what I think. When this happens, to make matters worse, I even begin to try to convince myself and others that I am not a conduit of self... I am a conduit of God. Oops! Can any of you relate to this story?
We need check the source of our connection, making sure we are connected to God rather than self. We need to ask the Holy Spirit to help us identify loose or even broken connections so they can be mended. We need to remove the debris from our conduit which may be slowing down or even blocking the flow. Then and only then will we be a true conduit of God's love.
What is flowing through your life?

Yes I have seen that in my life. We are still flesh, but as we grown in knowledge and understanding we do change. the word washes our mind.
Hosea 4:6 6My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Because you have rejected knowledge, I also will reject you from being My priest.
33But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. 34Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.
Seek God in all things abide in Him. He does the rest.
Truly enjoyed your transparency. Stay on the "Potter's Wheel" for He knows when the vessel is reworked into something greater.
