The Christian Pumpkin

Christian Pumpkin


A 10-year-old little girl was asked by another classmate, “what is it like to be a Christian?”. The girl replied, “it’s like being a pumpkin, God picks you from the patch, brings you in, and washes all the dirt off of you. Then He cuts open the top and scoops out all of the yucky stuff. He removes the seeds of doubt, hate, greed, etc., and then He carves you a new smiling face and puts His light inside of you to shine for all the world to see.”

2 Corinthians 5:17
“Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature:
old things are passed away;
behold, all things are become new.”

Just like the carved pumpkin in the illustration, once we become saved by the blood of Jesus Christ, we begin looking at life through His eyes. Those things in our lives that don’t belong there, the Holy Spirit convicts us of them and tells us that we need to change in those areas. We need to be aware of what the Holy Spirit is trying to tell us and then DO what He tells us to do.
