While visiting a factory with a friend, he took me into the boiler room. I was impressed with all of the different parts of the boiler that were necessary to make it work properly.
One of the most important parts of the boiler was a glass tube with water in it. I was told that it was impossible to look into the boiler to see how much water was in it. However, it was possible to know how much water was in the boiler by looking at the gauge. Whatever was in the boiler would be registered by the gauge.
What is true of the boiler is true of the believer.
How much do we love Christ? We can measure our love for Him by the amount of time we spend in reading the Bible, talking with Him in prayer and waiting on Him in worship. We can also measure our love for Him by taking an inventory of the amount of time we invest in our service to others who are in need.
