As Christians we dispense God’s glory because we’re God-carrying vessels.
“…God wrought special miracles by the hands of Paul: So that from his body were brought unto the sick handkerchiefs or aprons, and the diseases departed from them, and the evil spirits went out of them.” Acts 19:11-12
Although the handkerchiefs carried the anointing, they couldn’t move around on their own. They had to be taken to the sick or afflicted, and laid on them. Upon making contact with those who were sick or afflicted, miracles happened: “the diseases departed from them, and the evil spirits went out of them.”
When we stretch or lay our hands on anyone, there’s an effusion of divine virtue. When we speak the Word, there’s an outflow of power and grace. We dispense the glory, because we’re God-carrying vessels:
“But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us” (2 Corinthians 4:7).
