I like to be creative. I like drawing, painting, or anything of the sorts. One of my many reasons for enjoying art is imagining how much time God spent making us, making the world. I mean take a look around! Look at all of those details! It is gorgeous... I love it. At one point in my life I had a bad prescription on my glasses and all of the little details in life, in the world, was blurred to the point of blobs. I was hard for me to see any of the beautiful details that I loved so much. I had some pretty terrible vision, and as time went on I began to forget how amazing all of the leaves on the trees or the texture of flowers were. But when I got my new glasses, I realized all that I had been missing. All of the minute beauty came rushing back into my sight. It was great!
What I'm trying to get at from this is that when you never have something or you loose it for a prolonged period of time, you forget what you are missing. And so if someone has never heard about God or even if they have heard about God but stopped believing, then how are they to know? They aren't. They need someone to show them what they are missing just like I needed a doctor to give me different glasses to show me the details of God's beautiful world. That is why God sent his disciples off with the great commission.
Then Jesus came to them and them [The disciples], “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
We are called to show the God to the world. To "make disciples of all nations"!! We are to be the examples for people to follow. We could be the only example of God that someone gets, so be your best! Do your best! Be the best Christian you can be because you never know when you are the only example of God that someone is watching. You never know when you are the person that someone is hoping to find a friend in. You never know when you are the only example someone will get. So be your best.
