Christians come in many shapes and sizes, all laboring to do His wonder filled work.
But our focus should never slip from the message, from what pours forth, not the vessel itself. So much of our lives today is centered on surfaces, on appearances. But appearances merely obscure deeper currents of truth.
One cannot know what dwells within the depth of an ocean simply by staring at the seas’ surface. Our bodies are ephemeral and will soon be cast off. In Heaven when your spirit stands before The LORD, what shall He, Who sees deeper than any on on Earth, see in you?
Just asking. So, we pray:
God ALL-Mighty with Your grace and Love, make me a vessel for Your message, grace and peace. Ensure I maintain forever a nurturing spirit for all around me, whose ultimate rest shall be in Your Paradise.
Teach me to see beyond the mortal, beyond the ephemeral, and instead my LORD, plunge my sight deep into the truth of Your word and its everlasting light. I ask all this, in Jesus’ name, Amen.
