Divine Safety Net
Thank you, Saija, for this great graphic depiction of what it means to be really safe. A favorite scripture passage of mine is Colossians 3:1-4. "If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. Set your affections on things above, not on things on the earth. For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God. When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with Him in glory." (King James Version)
The section that I often quote is the 2nd part of verse 3 - "your life is hid with Christ in God." To illustrate this truth when I've been speaking, I've placed a quarter in one hand and said that the 25 cent piece represents my life. I then form a fist around the coin. My fist is a picture of Christ. Then I bury that fist in my other hand. That fist speaks of God. So I'm securely held both in Christ AND in God. What comfort! Are you abiding in the shelter of His mighty hand?
