Pencil Christian

Lessons that I’ve learned from a pencil about being a Christian.
1. A brand new pencil in an attractive wrapper is not working. 

  • Christians all dressed up, but not sharing the good news, are not working.

2. A pencil has 3 layers: paint, wood, and graphite.

  • People have 3 layers: body, soul (self), and spirit (God part).

3. It is a number two pencil. 

  • I am not number one.

4. Before it can be used, a pencil must be sharpened. 

  • Before a Christian can be used they must be sharpened.

5. sharpening grinds away the paint and wood to expose the graphite. 

  • Becoming a Christian grinds away your thoughts of body and soul (self) to expose the spirit which is the  God part of them.

6. Even the best pencil needs to be re-sharpened now and again. 

  • Even the best Christian needs to be re-sharpened now and again.

7. The pencil is not the message. 

  • The Christian is not the message.

8. The purpose of a pencil is to write messages. 

  • The purpose of a Christian is to reveal God’s message.    

9. A pencil may write many messages in many ways. 

  • A Christian my share their story about God in many ways.

10. There are lots of different writing instruments with different uses.

  • There are many kinds of Christians, each with their own type of service

Prayer
Lord, thank you for revealing your truths to us even in the simple things out our lives.
Amen
