An illustration using a candle or tea light and a glass jar

Light the candle and place it in on a saucer. Ask, the question: will the candle go out if I place a glass jar on top of it, yes or no? Place the jar on top of the candle and the flame will go out after a few seconds as the oxygen in the jar is depleted. Application: In order for our light to continue to shine we need to feed our faith through Bible study, prayer, fellowship and church.
