God has given His people the commandment to love others and leave a mark on this world that points back to Him. That’s the purpose of a Christian. Jesus gave the words now known as the Great Commission to His followers.
Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway*, even unto the end of the world. Amen.
And Mark 16:15
And he said unto them,Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.
Go into all nations means to all the world, to all people and to all colors. The “Go” also means for all colors, all nations and all people who follow Jesus to “go” and leave His mark on all the world.
Crayons come in many different colors, shapes and sizes. But they all leave color behind everywhere they mark.
People come in many different shapes and sizes. What kind of world would it be if we were all the same color?
We all have the ability to make a difference in the world we live.
We can leave a mark behind that is also full of that glorious color God has given us.
Even broken and naked crayons can serve a purpose and leave a mark.
You are fearfully and wonderfully made by a creative God who knows all of you. Every part of your color, shape and size is part of His artistry.
You are not like anyone else because you are unique. That means you will not leave the same mark on the world.
Nor will you think or create the same art as anyone else.
Use your unique “coloring and making a mark on the world” ability to color the world for Christ.
How will you leave a mark for Jesus in this world?
