The Boat in the Window

by on October 21, 2013

A young boy spent many hours building a little sailboat, crafting it down to the finest detail. He then took it to a nearby river to sail it. When he put it in the water, however, it moved away from him very quickly. Though he chased it along the bank, he couldn’t keep up with it. The strong wind and current carried the boat away. The heartbroken boy knew how hard he would have to work to build another sailboat.

Farther down the river, a man found the little boat, took it to town, and sold it to a shopkeeper. Later that day, as the boy was walking through town, he noticed the boat in a store window.

Entering the store, he told the owner that the boat belonged to him. It had his own little marks on it, but he couldn’t prove to the shopkeeper that the boat was his. The man told him the only way he could get the boat was to buy it. The boy wanted it back so badly that he did exactly that.

As he took the boat from the hand of the shopkeeper, he looked at it and said, “Little boat, you’re twice mine. I made you and I bought you.

In the same way, we are twice God’s. Our Father in heaven both created us and paid a great price for us. (See Colossians 1:16 and Romans 5:8.) With the blood of His Son, we have been redeemed and reunited with God.

Jesus Christ gave His life to get us back, yet so often we show such little gratitude for what He has done for us.

Make it a point this week to give God thanks and glory for making you “twice his” – He made you and He bought you with His precious blood!!

May the favor of God be all over you this week!!

Expect a Miracle,

Pastor Jubal
