Humpty Dumpty

humpty9n-2-web“Now, then, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were pleading through us: we implore you on Christ’s behalf, be reconciled to God.” 2 Cor 5:20

A father wanted to read the paper but was being bothered by his little daughter, Vanessa. Frustrated, he tore a sheet out of a magazine, on which was printed a map of the world. Tearing it into small pieces, he gave it to Vanessa and said, “Go into the other room and see if you can put this back together. After a few minutes, Vanessa returned and handed him the map correctly fitted and taped together. The father was surprised and asked how she finished so quickly. “Oh”, she said, “on the other side of the paper is a picture of Jesus. Once I got Jesus in His place, then the world came out all right.”

“Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall; Humpty Dumpty had a great fall: and all the king’s horses, and all the king’s men couldn’t put Humpty-Dumpty back together again.” Therein is the history of mankind. Man had a great fall. And ever since, the world has turned to human hands and human governments to try to put us back together again. And all the king’s horses and all the king’s men – could not, cannot, put mankind back together again.

In whom do we put our trust? Is it the king or the King of Kings? “It is better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in man. It is better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in princes.” Psalm 118:8-9

Yes, without a doubt, Humpty needs to be reconciled to his Dumpty, but it’s not for the king to do; it is for us to do. In Jesus Christ, we have been given the ministry of reconciliation. We are His ambassadors. We speak for Him to this Humpty-Dumpty world: “Be reconciled to God.”

Vanessa, how did that go again? “Once I got Jesus in His place, then the world came out all right!”
