Looking Forward--Letting Him In and Letting Him Out, by Linden Malki
Think about the heart: blood comes in, blood is pumped out. If it doesn't get in, it can't get out. If the output valve or artery is blocked, fresh blood can't get in. Either way--you're dead.(This metaphor came out of a discussion with a lady from one of our groups--and she said she'd watch for it on my blog.) This is the way we are physically designed. Not only does the heart beat but our lungs suck in fresh air and let out stale air. We eat so that we may expend energy. Our very lives depend on each heartbeat, each breath and each meal.
God fills us and we are called to absorb it and turn it into an outgoing spiritual gift. We are not called to simply drink it in and do nothing; He can only give us more of Himself as we let Him out into our world.
