I want you to picture yourself in the same, icy cold prison cell. Imagine that you are thin and frail trembling from the cold. And all you have is a thin blanket to warm yourself. How tightly would you cling to the little comfort you have? What would it take for you to part with your precious blanket?
You see, that thin blanket represents our life. If we give up our blanket, we’re going to die. If we let go of our lone security, we must surrender to death.
But what if the one next to you in that cell is JESUS? What of you had the privilege of giving what you little had to the one who gave up HIS life for you? What if you really did have the opportunity to show your love and gratitude to the KING of all Kings and the Creator of the Universe? Would you give up your blanket?
As a generation, we have been taught to hold on to our blankets, to secure our future even at the expense of those around us, But we fail to realize that the security of our future rests not in our blanket but in JESUS sitting next to us. When we choose to give instead of keep, we discover a little taste of heaven on earth, When we choose to let go of whatt little we have and surrender it to GOD, it’s when we receive the bounty of HIS kingdom.
