Move Around Freely 92

Two Sided Coin

two gold coinsLike the prophet Jeremiah's call, the Christian call is also like a two-sided coin. On the one side is our own free response to God, on the other our certain destiny. Think of yourself as being like a fly within a balloon! You can move around freely within its expanded walls, but when God tugs on the string the balloon moves with you in it and goes wherever God wants to take you. This is a simple picture of what is really a very loving and warm relationship.

Jeremiah's Call

Finely Cut EmeraldThe prophet Jeremiah's call may also be illustrated by a jewel, finely cut and shining. When the light falls on one facet it appears blue, but turn it in your fingers just slightly and you see red! So, what color is the jewel? It is both red and blue depending on how the light falls on it. Jeremiah was one man on whom the light of God fell. Jeremiah's call is an excellent example of the special and unique call God has for each one of us.
