He Dropped His Blanket!
In the classic “Charlie Brown Christmas” cartoon / movie Linus comes on stage to recite the verses in Luke about the birth of Jesus. He does something VERY OUT OF CHARACTER for him… HE DROPS HIS BLANKET!!! (Google it!) As he states the words “Fear Not”, he lets his blanket drop to the floor. This is a great example of having a faith so big that it allows you to drop your security blanket and trust in the Lord.
This is my question for us all today. What items, habits, or ideas that we hold as a security blanket to protect us from the world are we willing to drop in order to grow a stronger faith in Jesus? Is it our pride, fear, hatred, closed minded ideas or maybe even our concrete opinions of people places and things? Check your experience…
“When many hundreds of people are able to say that the consciousness of the Presence of God is today the most important fact of their lives, they present a powerful reason why one should have faith.” Big Book pg 51
Lord, let us trade in the things we hold as security blankets for the everlasting faith in You, AMEN.
“The angel reassured them. “Fear Not” he said. “I bring you good news that will bring great joy to all people.” Luke 2:10
Have a blessed day y’all! !
