God's Favourite Selfie
‘See, I have engraved you on the palms of my hands’ Isaiah 49:16
Recently, the Bishop visited my church and was having such a fun time with us; he pulled out his mobile phone and took a photograph of himself standing in front of the congregation.
This type of photograph is called a ‘selfie’ or a ‘group selfie’. Selfies are usually taken with a smartphone before being quickly shared on social networking sites such as Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.
According to the BBC News Magazine, the selfie has arguably become the greatest photographic trend of our time.
People take selfies for any number of reasons such as updating their Facebook profile picture, capturing a moment in time with friends or simply they may want to share a fun event with others.
This got me thinking. I reckon God took His favourite ‘selfie’ when he tattooed your name on the palm of His hand. And then He went on to perfect it when He sent the Holy Spirit to dwell in you.
‘Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you’
1 Corinthians 6:19
YOU are before God ALL the time. God will never ever ever forget you, but He made a double insurance just in case, and He wouldn't need to look at Facebook or his phone to see you – He only has to look at His hand!
How cool is God?! He started taking ‘selfies’ before the word was even invented!
What do you think?
