I always believe we take God with us where ever we go. Here, take this following demonstration using a blackboard and a yellow piece of chalk.
When we start the day we invite God to be with us, usually through prayer or reading our bibles. (we believe starting the day with God is the best way to start the day, and ensures you don’t forget as the fatigue of the dya wears you down at night) The yellow chalk would show the beginning of it’s journey across the blackboard, from left to right, left being the start of the day the right being the end of the day, the yellow chalk to symbolise the places we have been with Him.
Sometimes, as is only humans fallable nature we walk through the filth of the enemy, meaning that the yellow chalk line may change to brown or grey in parts. This is usually when we do something God would not like us doing, sin.
No yellow line can ever remain pure, we all sin at times, but no matter how much brown or grey is in it, God hasn’t given up on you.
For a Christian, we hope that when we look at the blackboard after our daily journey, our line is made up of a majority of yellow.
The yellow in this demonstration represents God’s light, the blackboard represents the darkness of the world system.
We need to take God’s light into the darkness. So that what was once all darkness, has now been changed by us, a vessel who God used to take His Light into darkness.
Well with this in mind my current job has me traveling about 24000 kilometers every 3 months, my life line would have a lot of yellow (I believe) and a bit of brown and grey (I am not perfect only redeemed) across the darkness of our city.
Each day I try to make my Journey with God better and strive, against my human nature to fill as much of my day with God’s light, Hoping to shine some yellow onto other people’s blackboards. Giving them a starting point for their own walk with God, their own Journey of faith.
(If you are interested in learning how to take a step into leading others into a faith walk with Jesus, We recommend you take a look at a book called “Taking our cities for God” by John Dawson. We’d only be too happy to help you find a copy if you would like one)
Let us challenge you, as we walk together as brothers and sisters of Christ to become a person aware that we carry God with us. We in our own power can’t change much, but He can do a lot through us. If we’re willing!
BE WILLING – BE A VESSEL FOR HIS GLORY
Mathew 5 verse 14 to 16:
“You are the light of the world, a city situated on a hill cannot be hidden. No one lights a lamp and puts it under a basket, but rather a lampstand, and gives it light, for all in the house to see. In the same way let your light shine, before men, so that they may see your good works,and give glory to your Father in heaven.”
