Yes, you read that correctly. I am getting a tattoo. And, yes, I am still a pastor and Bible college faculty member. And I am not just getting any tattoo. The kind you are probably thinking that I am getting is so cliché…so 2013.
And my tattoo will not be something covered by sleeves or pant legs. We are talking about one for my face so everyone can see it. And Mike Tyson has nothing on what I’m getting.
And don’t bother trying to talk me out of it. This is a done deal. I’ve made up my mind and I’m sticking to it no matter what.
Just to be clear, I’m getting a tattoo that no one can replicate. I’m getting a tattoo that never needs upgrading and is the ultimate tattoo of tattoos. I am getting a tattoo that sets me apart from the world. And I hope (and pray) you are getting one as well:
“All who are victorious will become pillars in the Temple of my God, and they will never have to leave it. And I will write on them the name of my God, and they will be citizens in the city of my God– the new Jerusalem that comes down from heaven from my God. And I will also write on them my new name.”
“Then I saw the Lamb standing on Mount Zion, and with him were 144,000 who had his name and his Father’s name written on their foreheads.”
“No longer will there be a curse upon anything. For the throne of God and of the Lamb will be there, and his servants will worship him.
And they will see his face, and his name will be written on their foreheads.” (Rev 3.12; 14.1; and 22.3-4 NLT)
The one that declares, “I listen to the Spirit, and thus belong to God, because I love and worship Jesus no matter what.” Now THAT is my kind of tatt.
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
