This morning one of our prayer warriors, known as Keon online, sent me a beautiful message. Now I am taking the time to share it with you, Victorious Ones.
Her message took my breath away. What came to my mind as I saw the picture was myself and others who were broken, but the golden love of God has repaired us.
After doing some research, I discovered that Kintsugi (golden joinery), also known as Kintsukuroi (golden repair), is the Japanese art in which artists repair broken pottery instead of throwing them in the trash.
In Kintsugi, broken ceramics are skillfully restored with "lacquer dusted or mixed with powdered gold, silver, or platinum."
The artists do not attempt to hide the fact that the ceramics were broken. When you look at this type of art, you can clearly see golden lines and curves. However, the gold eclipses and outshine the imperfections of the ceramics.
The Blood of Jesus is like the gold and we are like the broken ceramics. Wherever the Blood is applied or whatever the Blood of Jesus is applies to, it is like gold placed on broken ceramics. True value is added to those people or things.
When gold was used in the Tabernacle, those items received great value because gold signifies divinity.
Therefore, for those of you who feel broken or were once broken, when you come to God (through Jesus), He repairs and restores you just like how the Japanese use that lacquer resin mixed with powered gold, silver, or platinum to mend those ceramics.
