I ran across a picture of this team recently in those bright yellow signature covered shirts and was reminded of all the Lord did on that trip. I am all the more reminded of how many times not only do I feel supported by the brothers and sisters I have in Christ who surround me on a daily basis, but that the God of the Universe, my Lord and Savior watches over me. Isaiah the prophet spoke of this truth when speaking to the Hebrew people on their commission when they were released from captivity.
“For you shall not go out in haste, and you shall not go in flight, for the LORD will go before you, and the God of Israel will be your rear guard” Isaiah 52:12,( ESV).
As members of the body of Christ may we write our names on each other’s bright yellow t-shirts as a commitment to support each other as we pursue kingdom work. All the while knowing our loving and gracious Lord goes before us and is truly our rear guard.
