Happy Halloween!

Sorry it’s been awhile since I’ve posted. Life has been moving pretty fast in my little part of the world. Yet, I thought I would make sure to post today.

In 1 Corinthians Paul writes, “I have become all things to all men, so that I may by all means save some.” (1 Corinthians 9:21b NASB). I would say that Paul’s message here is to be relate-able to everyone. I think that the churches that are having attendance issues (especially with the younger generations) tend to not think this way about this Scripture. But in light of a day like today, I think it is important to use the world’s festivities in order to show Christ; that’s a big way that we can become relate-able. So I found a poem that I thought I would share. I did not write it, and unfortunately don’t know who did.

I am a Jack O’ Lantern
My lights will shine so bright
For I’m a Christian pumpkin
My symbols tell what’s right

My nose is like the cross
On which our Savior died
To set us free from sin
We need no longer hide

My mouth is like a fish
The whole wide world to show
That Christians live in this house
And love their Savior so!

The story starts at Christmas
My eyes are like the star
That shone on Baby Jesus
And wise men saw from far

My color, it is orange
Just like the big bright sun
That rose on Easter Day
Along with God’s own Son

And so on Halloween
Let’s set our pumpkins out
And tell the trick or treaters
What God’s love is all about!
