Lessons I Learned on Vacation – Signs Work

  • Isaiah 8:18 (NKJV)  Here am I and the children whom the Lord has given me!  We are for signs and wonders in Israel  From the Lord of hosts, who dwells in Mount Zion. 

As far back as I can remember there have been red barns with the announcement—“See Rock City” painted on them dotting the landscape along the highways of the southeastern United States.  RockCity1

Rock City is one of the attractions Chattanooga, TN offers.  Guess where Sonja and I went during our recent vacation…you guessed it: Rock City.

Signs work.

Signs work in your life as well.  The Bible clearly shows that signs will follow believers in Jesus Christ.  In other words overflowing from your life will be evidence that Jesus is real.  You’re not the sign maker or sign giver—you’re just the “barn” (I mean this in the best sense of the word :)) that Jesus uses to promote his mercy and grace to the world.

So you think you are not making a difference?  It took at least 35-40 years (maybe longer) but eventually those red barns wore me down—I had to go see Rock City.  Trust me, you are making a difference.  Jesus is using every test and trial, every triumph and trip-up for His purpose.  Don’t be hard on yourself or on those around you; one day you’re going to be surprised at the people who made it to heaven simply because you were willing to take on the name “Christian” and allow Jesus to announce to the world that if He could save people like you and me…why there’s hope for anyone.
