Have you met “Flat Stanley”? Flat Stanley was born in a bed-time story, but he took on a life of his own! In the book, Flat Stanley traveled through the mail; in real life children make a paper cut-out and send it to folks around the world. As Flat Stanley travels, the children learn about new places and ways of life. It is great fun!
The “life” of Flat Stanley is in the hearts and minds of the children who send him out–and live through his adventures. As a child of God, our life is much the same. We have life in Jesus Christ. The Apostle Paul said:
“For in him we live and move and exist. As some of your own poets have said, ‘We are his offspring.’ “ Acts 17:28
The life we live is because of Jesus and for Jesus. He wants us to have great adventures and enjoy them fully because of Him. Flat Stanley would not have “life” without children who learn and feel the fun of his adventures. In our own lives, it is Jesus who brings truth and full life to the things we do.
What adventure will you have with Jesus today?
