paints the face of Christ
on the hardwood floor
of the church.
The face of Christ, radiant on the church’s floor, illustrates the divinity of humility. Lying prostrate on the hardwood floor brings us into the right relation to God. Grounded in Christ, we can turn our faces toward heaven.
In trading, we need solid ground on which to stand on. We need to rely on the rock that is Christ and drink His living water. “And did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Christ“(1 Corinthians 10:4, KJV).
You might ask, “Aren’t you confusing physical reality with spiritual reality? Not at all. I am using physical metaphors to point to spiritual reality which alone can banish our fears and give us faith. Facts don’t allay our fears—only faith does. So when trading, we need to humble ourselves before the Lord and cling to the rock that is Christ.
