The Broken Egg
An egg has to be broken before it could be used.
Just as I just said, an egg has to be broken before it could be used. We have to break the shell of the egg in order to fully use the egg. We use what is on the inside of the egg. Even a baby chick must break the egg shell to get out.
Even hard boiled eggs, we boil them in the shell in water. When they are ready, we crack the shell to get the egg out. We do the same when we go to fry our eggs, poach the egg, bake the egg. No matter how you cook the egg, the shell sooner or later must be broken.
No matter what we do, the egg must be broken!
Just the same we have to be broken before God can use us.
When we are broken, that is when we know we have to fully and totally depend on Christ. We can do all things through Christ who strengthens us. (Philippians 4:13)
That broken state is to help tech us we cannot do it on our own. We need help and that help is in the form of Christ. He can help and enable us to do anything. God breaks our shell you can say. He then uses the inside, the egg you can say. The breaking helps us rid ours self of “us” and make it all about “Him!”
Also an egg is easy to break. We are the same way, we can be easily broken. When we are broken, allow God to mold you and use you in that broken state.
This has been some food for thought. Next time when you see a broken egg, let it remind you that we must be broken before God can use us. He uses our weakness to benefit his Kingdom.
