We had a good time watching our friends’ youngest child on video. She had put her mom’s lipstick on her own lips. Then proceeded to mark herself up and down her arms and legs. There was no denying what had happened because the evidence was there for all to see.
Oh beloved! God has touched your lips with His mark. He wants your entire life to be so marked that there is no denying what He has done with you, in you and for you. There are going to be times that your identification will isolate you. Don’t worry. God will send the right people into your life who see Christ’s mark on you as beautiful.
God wants to mark your life from the inside out. Allow Him free access. As He marks more and more of you for His Kingdom you will be changed. Whom He loves He changes. It’s as though you are wearing the evidence of the cross on your entire life. And joyfully you are bearing the marks of the resurrection as well.
Along with those incredible identifications you are marked with joy, peace, kindness, and more. You carry the very things that the world so desperately seeks after. Your marks will become signs to draw others to Christ.
God loves you and He’s for you. A marked up life is a reward to you. Run to Him this morning and give Him more freedom to mark your life. And rejoice as you live as a sign to a Watching world for the Kingdom and glory of God!
