God’s Visual Aids

Every good teacher knows that a picture is worth a thousand words. Visual aids. Their importance cannot be overemphasized. I think history will record that everyone would rather be shown something than simply told about it.

Not too long ago, in the grand scheme of things, families would gather around the radio and listen to adventures! The Shadow, Superman, Richard Diamond, Boston Blackie. Then what happened? Television took over. Pictures lit up our living rooms. Radio lost it’s listening audience (at least for this type of product). Let’s face it, would you rather have Niagara Falls described to you, or see it for yourself, the tons of water cascading down over the rocks?

The same thing is true with the Christian faith. We can share millions of words about what a Christian is, but the world is looking for Visual Aids. They want to see Christ living in you, not simply hear. Are you being a good Visual Aid for God’s Gospel Message? Hopefully, you’re not trying to be a “Radio Christian”; telling a story, but with no picture to go behind it.

Matthew 5:16 “Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.”
