Icons are what you click on when you want to open a programme on a computer a little picture of a disc, a sheet of paper, a fox snuggling the earth (yes, we know, other internet browsers are available). You go through icons to get to the programme you want.
You, and we, are icons. Were shortcuts to God. Of all the wonderful things in this universe fiery stars in the sky, giant sea beasts that churn up waters, the booming and rumble of mighty storms you, and we, are what God looks like most. Look through the New Testament for clues. It says that we are made to be like Gods Son (Romans 8:29). Not the stars, not the sky, not the earth. We are the ones called to be like Gods Son.
So if we look closely at you, or you look closely at us (all savedbygrace people) we all get to see beyond ourselves, to a bit of God. If you hear our stories, or we hear yours, Hes bursting through them; more so than He does through the mightiest waterfall or biggest cosmic storm.
So what now? So, you are not perfect and youre flawed round the edges. But, in Gods eyes you are made perfect through Christ and therefore He can use you to help others big time! Thank Him, look to Him and be the icon youre meant to be!
