So one has to wonder, where in this plethora of required reading and love of social media will we carve out a special place for reading God's word on a daily basis? Maybe not so challenging for die-hard bible study fans, but what about the rest of us?
What if we devoted only minutes each day to just one passage of scripture, just one at a time? What if we looked at God's word through pictures and digestible bites of information? It's been said that a picture says a thousand words and it's a fact that visuals help us have better recall. So might we absorb and memorize scripture in a new and more impactful way with something like glorified flash cards? Cards with God's words and inspiration against a backdrop of scenic photos also offer visual appeal for weary eyes. A real 3-D card to touch and feel, and to keep within regular view, is most desirable for the task of scripture meditation and memorization. E-versions are certainly desirable and impactful in their own right, but without the same staying power as we tend to scan them quickly and move on to the next one in an ocean of pics and quotes, often forgetting the one we left behind. And what about those who don't use social media...we need to reach them too!
The postcards by Passages Forever are created with this vision in mind. They are designed with scripture and a photograph on the front, and an inspirational note and prayer on the back. They can be used as personal devotionals for prayer, study and scripture memorization, and also as greeting cards, and as witnessing cards. And not to worry, you will have the convenience you are used to with social media. We will handle the mailing for you, so you don't have to even lick a stamp, unless of course, you want to.
Use as Devotionals - To brighten your day and grow your faith
Use these scenic postcards for your devotional time, or post them somewhere as a daily reminder of God's love for you. Use them to develop your prayer life, and as study aids to memorize scripture. Imagine if we didn't have access to a bible? Or what if in a moment of despair we could have instant recall to God's principles and promises when we need them most? Having God's word inscribed in your hearts will be true personal treasure in moments like these.
Use as Greeting Cards - To encourage a friend
Encourage a friend (or stranger) with God's word and a message that they just might be needing to hear today...a message in their mailbox...that touches their life with a simple act of kindness.
Use as Witnessing Cards-To share the love of Christ
We have all been there, wanting others to know the awesome good news about why we have hope, purpose, peace and joy...about life and how it was meant to be and still can be, about God and mankind and our future. We know it's not only our responsibility but also our privilege to share the love of Christ with the world. And yet, we sometimes struggle for the words, for fear of offending, of rejection, of failure to adequately communicate the Good News and simply put, "fear of blowing it". However, it's helpful to me when I remember that it's only the Holy Spirit who has the final authority and power to bring someone to Christ (John 6:44). But I also know we are to be His ambassadors (Mark 16:15). It's my prayer that these scenic postcards with Gods words of love and hope will be helpful tools in our call to the Great Commission, as you share God's incredible message of man's redemption, one passage at a time.
It's my prayer that you will make a commitment to use these cards daily, allowing
the Holy Spirit to minister to you and those your share them with, one passage at at time...
So how do you think you might use our postcards to help you in your daily walk with our Lord?
