After this I saw four angels. Each one was standing on one of the earth's four corners. The angels held back the four winds, so that no wind would blow on the earth or on the sea or on any tree. These angels had also been given the power to harm the earth and the sea. Then I saw another angel come up from where the sun rises in the east, and he was ready to put the mark of the living God on people. He shouted to the four angels, "Don't harm the earth or the sea or any tree! Wait until I have marked the foreheads of the servants of our God."
Revelation 7 : 1-3
Sometimes when you go to a public event instead of giving you a ticket to get in they will put a mark on your hand. That mark will prove that the price has been paid for you to be there. Even if you leave for a short while the mark will allow to you get back in without any further payments!
When Jesus paid for your sins on the Cross He put His mark on you! Nothing else is owed for you to enter the gates of Heaven and live with Jesus forever!
I once worked with a man who had tattoos on almost every available spot of skin that could be seen by others, except his face. During a break he told me about the reasons he got those marks on his body. He had a story behind every one of them.
If you are a follower of Jesus Christ other people will notice the mark that Jesus put on you! The testimony that you have to tell others is about that mark and how you came to get it! Sometimes followers of Jesus tell others that the mark of God on them is "really nothing at all," or it is something "that I did when I was young and was stupid." Those are the kinds of things some people say about their tattoos!
But when you turned your heart to Jesus Christ and He marked you as His very own child, He gave you a story to tell to everyone you know or even meet! Determine to tell someone the Story of Your Mark today!
"Lord Jesus, thank You for putting Your mark on me! Give me the courage to tell the Story of when You put Your mark on me. Praise Your Holy Name now and forever. Amen."
