This design was something that I had in the back of my mind but I couldn’t figure out how to tie it all together. I knew that I wanted to make a stamp with Jesus on it, but how could I relate that to Christianity?

The answer is deliverance! While the US Postal Service says that they’ll deliver through rain, sleet, snow, and dark of night, I don’t ever recall them delivering someone from addiction…:)

Deliverance is something that comes from the realization that you and I can do nothing to save ourselves. It comes when we realize that we are sinners that, left to our own devices, would destroy ourselves and others as we chased after “what we need”. If you don’t believe me, look back on your life and see what happened when you did things your way…

Jesus does deliver and He delivers completely. Sadly, many people look at deliverance as some sort of spiritual “shockwave”. To many, it’s an emotional “explosion” where God “moves” in their lives and completely changes them. Well, that is until the emotional high wears off and they come back to earth. Then, things are like they used to be (if not worse). That’s not deliverance.

Deliverance is the result of fully trusting in God’s Word. It’s understanding that God meant what He said and He plans to do it. It’s knowing that God may not do things your way, but He will always do things so that He is glorified. Deliverance is realized when you obey the truth of the scriptures in spite of your circumstances! Of all of the world’s religions, Christainity is the only one that offers deliverance from sin, judgment, and hell. You can’t deliver yourself…let Jesus deliver you!
