This week’s (second) design is called He Delivers.

The design is in the Occupations section of our store and is a play on the Postal Worker. The design shows a red stamp with an image of Jesus and the Greek letters Alpha and Omega. Obviously, the postal workers make their rounds delivering our mail. Some of it is junk – circulars, efforts by car and cable companies to get us to use their service, etc – and some of it is stuff we need. Things like our bills (ok, you could argue that we don’t need these but…), letters (you know! those things that people write on paper…the old email?), and packages that we’ve ordered.

Unlike the postal workers, when we talk about Jesus delivering, we are talking about His sacrifice and the effect it has on anyone who recognizes their sin and repents. Jesus’ deliverance is from the sin in our hearts. He cleanses us completely and moves us from the kingdom of darkness into the kingdom of light (Colossians 1:13). He has delivered those who repent and trust in Him from the wrath that awaited them from a just God who must punish sins. His deliverance is the most amazing thing that a man can experience.

Sadly, like the mail we receive, many don’t want anything to do with the deliverance that Jesus offers. They see His wonderful offer like you and I see the junk mail. They rebel against Him and mock His life and death. The truth is, the deliverance that Jesus offers is more valuable than the most precious piece of mail that we could ever get. If you haven’t been delivered by Jesus, please repent of your sins and trust in Christ alone to save you. Please, while there is still time!

Design of the Week – He delivers!

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!
