You see them everywhere these days, on the doors of restaurants and in almost every type of business, help wanted signs. Sadly, at least in my neck of the woods, there aren’t enough people who are willing to work.

The other day, while my wife and I waited for our lunch at a favorite short-staffed eatery, the following thought occurred to us both: God doesn’t need help wanted signs.

Before you say, “Now wait a minute, David!” please allow me to explain. God absolutely invites us to join Him in His work. For instance, Jesus sent out the seventy-two as an advance team for the cities he visited (Luke 10:1-2). This was certainly a help wanted situation.

Yet there’s another sign the Lord loves to put up everywhere-world-wide. Please see below:

Right there in neon letters is the biggest “Help OFFERED” sign ever. And, when we accept heaven’s gift, that makes us neon saints!

We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making His appeal through us. We implore you on Christ’s behalf: Be reconciled to God.

2 Corinthians 5:20 (NIV)

Kind reader, is there a big “Heaven’s Help Offered” in the window of your life? Do others see Jesus in you? Of course, I ask myself these same questions.

Thank you for reading. 🙏❤️

For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.

John 3:16 (NIV)

    It’s your humility before God that touches me the most, friend. As the New Testament book of Hebrews says, “We have this hope as an anchor for the soul.” Thank you for stopping by and for sharing your thoughts.

    A post that tugs our heart on God’s words, message and purpose. I would to be believe I’m not hopeless in following God’s ultimate plan despite of the many sins, failure and heartbreaks I’ve given him.

    Such a wonderful post. Help Offered! Yes! I saw a church sign on my way to the store yesterday that says “Let your life advertise Jesus”. I long for my life, words, actions to point the way to Jesus, not point the way to me. I’m no one’s Savior. Oh how I want others to find the One and Only Jesus.

    Great message, David. We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors = being the neon sign for others to see.

    So true that God does not need anything from us but he chooses to bless us by including us in his work.

    Thank you, Beth! Your references from Christ’s Sermon on the Mount fit perfectly with this post. I never worry about filling in around the edges, because readers (like yourself) always do. God Bless!

    A great word picture David- “when we accept heaven’s gift, that makes us neon saints!” Your questions drive home the point in the Sermon on the Mount when Jesus said “Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.”

    We are God’s “Help Offered” signs by shining our lights to the world around us. And God’s benefits package to us workers is AMAZING!

    Thank you, Manu. We all fall short of the glory of God. That’s why “Help Offered” signs should be everywhere. Thank you for reading and commenting. Blessings!

    A question we all need to ask ourselves- do others see Christ in us. I hope they do but I also know that there are times when I fail to reflect Him.
    Neon Saints- I like that.

    I’m glad He walks beside us, too. I’ve been tempted to lose all hope, but, thanks to God’s grace, I did not. Thank you for stopping by today. God Bless!

    I love this David. The help offered by God applies to every situation imaginable. I, for one, am very glad He walks beside me on this road through life. I wouldn’t want to do it without Him.

    A very timely post today as I hear the local news that our town bridge was closed again early this morning, it has become the venue of many sad people choosing to end their lives. Help definitely is needed by many folks in our world. I pray that I would be a sign of welcome for my Lord in my daily routine, bring even a crumb of hope to someone in His name. God bless you brother David.
