The Circuit of Purpose

In high school, one of the first major projects I was assigned was to successfully build an electrical circuit.  I started by connecting a huge battery to a light bulb using copper wiring.  I also added a lever to open and close the circuit, making the light bulb flash on when the lever was closed.

I learned the technical terms for each part of the circuit.  The battery was the “source,” the copper wiring was the “conductor,” the lever was the “switch,” and the light bulb was the load.  The load is designed to receive all the power generated from the source through the conductor, to produce an action or a result.  In the case of my makeshift circuit, the action was light.  All of the parts of the circuit had to connect perfectly before the light bulb, or the load, would light up.

In much the same way, our lives are like spiritual circuits.  When we are connected to our Source (God), we have the power to light up this world.  Our connection to God the Father through the finished work of Jesus Christ gives us the ability to release that power into the lives of others.  Matthew 5:16 (KJV) states, “Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.”  When we are connected to our Source, His power flowing through us generates the light of life that draws men to Him…that’s how this circuit is designed.

There is one more step to closing the circuit of purpose in our lives.  We have been created to live in union with God to fully maximize our potential as lights in this world.  For this to happen, we must ensure that the circuit of our heart, head, and hands align perfectly.

Proverbs 4:23 (KJV) states, “Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.”  Our hearts are like the conductors of God’s power. He built them to be receptive to and conduct His love and power.  Our minds act as the switches of this powerful circuitry.  What we think on a daily basis can either help or halt the flow of God’s power through our lives.  Our internal dialogue creates our reality, even if the dialogue is not true.  Finally, our hands carry out the work of the ministry as our hearts connect with our heads to close the circuit, thus creating the light of life that can only be found in Christ.
