Today while driving an idea popped in my mind. I started using signage to praise and recall the word of God.
For instance, I saw the motel Drury Inn and thought of the scripture “And she brought forth her firstborn Son, and wrapped Him in swaddling clothes, and laid Him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn.” Luke 2:7 I thank God for His gift of Christ-the Prince of Peace. Even in the midst of the last days, there is still power in His holy, mighty name!
The next sign I saw was for Church Brothers Collision Repair. “For even as the body is one and yet has many members, and all the members of the body, though they are many, are one body, so also is Christ.” 1 Corinthians 12:12. We are to serve others in order for the church to function. The church is an earthly representation of the literal body of Christ. We are His Hands and Feet on earth while He reigns in heaven. Many of us forget this precious truth-myself included.
Then I saw Nail Art. “So he said to them, “Unless I see in His hands the print of the nails, and put my finger into the print of the nails, and put my hand into His side, I will not believe.” John 20:25 We are made whole by the many holes He suffered on our behalf. A perfect being who took on the transgressions of the world. He is our hope. The way. The truth. The life. The light.
And Heritage Christian School. “And when he had found him, he brought him to Antioch. So it was that for a whole year they assembled with the church and taught a great many people. And the disciples were first called Christians in Antioch.” Acts 11:26 We are His earthly followers and namesakes. Through him we receive strength to continue His ministry. It is our job to spread the Good News to the ends of the earth. I’m proud to be a member of the body of Christ!
Seeing Starbuck’s made me recall “Now after Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of Herod the king, behold, wise men from the East came to Jerusalem, saying, “Where is He who has been born King of the Jews? For we have seen His star in the East and have come to worship Him.” Matthew 2:2 His star can’t help but shine forth with the miracle of the resurrection! With Christ, anything is possible. He has left His star to light the way for His people.
