Diamonds are something that people all over the world think are some of the prettiest kind of jewelry one can possess. It’s valuable, so much so in some countries, people kill to have it. So how are Diamonds made…they are buried under the earth and are then heated to 2,200 degrees Fahrenheit, squeezed under 725,000 pounds per square inch, which then quickly rush towards the earth’s surface to cool. The human body for a short-term period can stand about 248 degrees Fahrenheit, this shows you how hot it has to be heated for the Diamonds to be made. After they push through the dirt, they are then brushed off, and everyone only sees the beautiful Diamond. As Christians we are like Diamonds, we at times are buried in our pain, our life failures, then we feel like we are going through the fire with our marriages, family issues, work and health issues.  We feel like we are being pressed, we have to balance work, home, school, and family, and sometimes we feel like we are being squeezed and that we cannot breathe. Then comes the weight of the world, we feel like EVERYTHING falls on top of us and that we cannot move. Then like Diamonds, something amazing happens…a quick rush towards the earth surface happens, and they cool off and are made into these BEAUTIFUL Diamonds. So for us then JESUS comes along and rushes through us and gives us the strength to push through the pain, the hurt, the disappointments, the diagnosis and life itself and then we grow. We also become something, we not only become Disciples of Christ, and we then become His children. In Galatians 3:26 it says for you are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus. So on this upcoming week remember in all that you are going through that you are a Diamond, a Beautiful child of God, what you are enduring is for a moment.
