Crayon Theology, pt.2

by Pastor Mark Jordan crayon

Yesterday I shared a social media meme, and explained how we are all made in God’s image. Ironically, I came across another crayon image that inspired this daily water.

Check out Romans 12:4-5, Just as our bodies have many parts and each part has a special function, so it is with Christ’s body. We are many parts of one body, and we all belong to each other” (NLT).

We all belong to Christ’s Body (the Church!) and have a different role. Sometimes we see these roles in ways that we describe in discriminatory fashions. With so many things we use to divide and dissect people into different groups, we must remember there is a role and purpose for everyone. We shouldn’t…for just as crayons can live together in the same box, we, too, must do the same. This, my friends, serves as the Church’s witness in the world.

May we live out our God given design so all will know of the goodness of God is for everyone!

“You’re here to be light, bringing out the God-colors in the world.”
~ Jesus in Matthew 4:14 (MSG)

Prayer: Dear Lord, help me bring out the God-colors in this world. I love my proverbial box of crayons, and thank you for loving us first. I pray in Jesus’ name. Amen.
