How is a Christian Like a Pumpkin?

I will cleanse you from all your impurities and from all your idols. I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh. And I will put my Spirit in you and move you to follow my decrees and be careful to keep my laws.
Ezekiel 36:25b-27
 
‘Tis pumpkin season and I love retelling this story. 
 
A new Christian explained to a friend that being a Christian felt like being a pumpkin. God chooses you from the patch and washes away all the dirt you may have picked up in the field or from the other pumpkins. He exposes the chaotic mess in your heart – the tangled seeds of greed, doubt, and hatred. It’s yucky, but Jesus doesn’t mind getting messy. He reaches in and scoops out all that evil to make you clean. He then carves a smile on your face and fills you with His light for all the world to see.
 
Are you like a pumpkin?
 
How is God’s light shining through you?

    I heard this story only a few years ago. I love it. May all our lights shine bright for Him
