Have I ever told you about this necklace I made? I found it...well, at least part of it at the shooting range. The "pendant" is a bullet. Only this bullet missfired. For some reason it came out of its casing without firing correctly.
If this bullet had fired properly, I never would have found it; because to avoid being shot, at a gun range you spend 99% of your time behind the firing line. And that's where I found it. Bullets that fire normally are found "down range", near the targets at the opposite end of the range and I try not to spend much time there.
And I started thinking. Our lives are like bullets. Where are well-fired lives spent? What are they not spent on? Will God find us using our lives "behind the fire line" -- places we shouldn't be investing our time? Or will He find us "down range", hitting the target He has for us? If He picked up our lives today and looked at them, what would He see?
Come with me as we grow in fellowship with each other and our Savior to whom belongs the Amazing Escape from sin and death and the Amazing Journey into glorious life.
