Chocolate, vanilla, strawberry or pistachio? What flavor of ice cream are you?
Ok, back story here – Michael Tate, the lead singer of the Newsboys, is known to say at a Newsboys concert that some of the vanilla folks would do well in the chocolate church. I love that! Anyway, on the way to school this morning, we were listening to the Newsboys and Rachel says “Mom, I think I am vanilla with chocolate sprinkles. You know, my freckles.” It just brought a smile to my face. Rachel is known for pulling things out of left field!
It got me to thinking about the love of Christ. He doesn’t care if you are chocolate, vanilla, strawberry or pistachio! He just loves you no matter what!
1 Timothy 2:3-4 – “This is good, and pleases God our Savior, who wants all men to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth.”
“All men.” Doesn’t matter your race, He wants you to come to the saving “knowledge of the truth.” Notice that it is “the truth”, not a truth. The truth of Jesus’ life is incredibly important.
Christmas time is just around the corner and with that a new year. I know that resolutions are in the process of being made. Why not make it a goal to tell as many people as possible about Christ in the next year? Goodness, why not start today! Don’t let another person’s tone of melanin keep you from sharing the Good News of Great Joy.
And by the way, I am proud to be a vanilla person with chocolate sprinkles and a cherry on top!:-)
