This is the conclusion to the short series started last week, ‘No Logo’. Hope you enjoy it, let me know what you think by commenting afterwards.
Flags. The symbol of a country. The pride of a nation. One country’s colours all put together on a piece of cloth, printed in a nice pattern. I’ve basically just summed a flag up in a few sentences.
As Christians, we have a flag: It’s just all white, it has no logo. It’s white because it’s a symbol of something clean, something pure. It shows us that by flying that flag we’re clean, we’re pure. I like to think of this flag, God’s flag, as a bit like God’s grace because God’s grace has no lines on it, no smudges, no pretty pattern, no mistakes. It’s pure – nothing to question – nothing to get confused by.
It has no border because it’s not limited by anything, (as said in last week’s post) by any sin, it breaks through and defies everything. It’s a never-ending white flag.
Don’t get confused though, this colour of white isn’t plain, it’s pure. There’s nothing plain about his grace, nothing standard about this flag. It’s the flag of grace and it’s flying for you.
Question is, what flag are you flying? What do you take pride in the most? In last week’s post it says that everything but Jesus will perish over time, so why would you want to worship anything that in the end will just die rather than God, who loves you, who forgives you, who looks after you, who heals you, the list goes on and on and on.
So, I challenge you today, what flag are you flying?
I know this is only short, but it’s all what needs to be said.
Thanks for reading, See you next week,
