To show you what I am talking about, let me ask you a question. How many of you have ever seen the Grand Tetons? If you have seen the Grand Tetons in person, lift your hand. I am talking about the beautiful mountain range in Wyoming. Keep your hands up, be proud of it. OK, if you have never seen the Grand Tetons, raise your hand. Look at the hands going up. Now the Grand Tetons can be seen on the side screen. We have a picture of them, gorgeous mountains. That is for those here who have not seen the Grand Tetons. But I have got one even better for you.
I have seen the Grand Tetons. This summer I stood in Wyoming and saw those majestic mountains bursting through the bold blue skies. I am going to make you a model of the mountains, of the Grand Tetons with this Playdough. It is going to work great. This is for all of you folks who have never seen the Grand Tetons. Here I go. Let me do it right here. You know I majored in Fine Arts for awhile at Florida State University. (Molds and shows the audience a Playdough mountain.) What do you think? I mean, what a representation of the Grand Tetons! You are saying, “ I think that you sipped too much Starbucks this morning. Give me a break. You cannot even attempt to mirror the majesty of the Grand Tetons with Playdough, so go ahead and put the Playdough back in the canister.”
That is kind of ridiculous, isn’t it? That is kind of a stretch. Who would do that? Yet, a lot of us play the same game and do the same thing with God. We take objects, we take thoughts, we take things and we kind of take our hands out and do the Playdough deal to mirror and make the majesty of God.
God is saying, put your Playdough away. Put some of your presuppositions away. Put some of your images away. Put some of your objects away because these fall miserably short of the true image and character of God.© Copyright 2012 admin, All rights Reserved. Written For: Ed Young Jr
