As I was preparing for VBS this week, I spent a lot of time focusing on our theme which is “Boomerang Express” and the basic message of this whole week will be “IT ALL COMES BACK TO JESUS!”
I absolutely just love the conveyed message in that simple phrase. Indeed, everything we do, everything we say, everything that we are, should be about Jesus. No matter the circumstances. No matter the events that take place. No matter the places we go or the people we deal with. Our lives should always reflect Jesus – our lives should always point people to Him.
The most important thing that we need to remember as Christians is that the choices and decisions we make; the things that we opt to do; the words that we elect to vocalize can have a definite boomerang effect that has the propensity to be a good thing or a bad thing.
If we are not careful to guard our hearts and tame our tongues, that boomerang effect can rend a devastating blow to our Christian witness.
If we don’t choose to live Godly, Christ-like lives, that boomerang effect can deliver a costly blow to our spiritual walk.
If we don’t spend time immersed in the Word of God and strive to keep ourselves fully aligned with Him, the boomerang effect can cause havoc in our lives.
As we live out the Truth of God’s Word and as we plant the seeds of the gospel into other peoples lives, we get to see the good fruits of our labor coming back to us. We need to make sure that we are speaking the truth of His Word.
“So shall My Word be that goes forth from My mouth; It shall not return to Me void, but it shall accomplish what I please, and it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.” (Isaiah 55:11)
When the boomerangs in my life come full circle back to me, I pray that they are producing good things. Holy things. Righteous things. Things that edify. Things that glorify Him. Things that point people to My Savior.
My prayer is that each day I saturate myself in His Word to the point that the overflow is filled with things of Christ. May I be nothing less than an instrument for His Glory in all that I do. In all that I say. In all that I am.
He is worthy. He is God. He is here.
