Molding Into Perfection

Colossians 1:15-23

Glassblowing is a fascinating process to watch. The artist, with a long metal tube and a molten piece of glass, blows and shapes the glass into a bubble. The glass is then manipulated with scissors, metal tools, and trips to the furnace to reheat the glass. Any imperfection, a piece of sand or an air bubble, would render the glass useless.

Think about God’s work in our lives. He keeps working in us, molding, cutting, and there may be frequent trips to the furnace. All that God does in us has a purpose, as the scripture tells us: “But now he has reconciled you by Christ’s physical body through death to present you holy in his sight, without blemish and free from accusation” (Colossians 1:22). God’s intention for us is a holy life where He is the one who molds us through the sacrifice and work of His Son Jesus Christ.

When the glassblower finishes the piece of glass, the artwork goes onto a shelf to be cooled and then used and appreciated by the customers. It is in the sight of the enthusiast, perfection.
