Do you remember the popularity of felt boards in the past? Sunday school teachers used them as a very effective teaching tool to visually explain a story. The combination of telling and showing stories entertained while it taught. Sometimes the old fashioned methods should be given the credit deserved.
Are we too old for felt board faith? I don't think so. If a picture is worth a thousand words a lot of knowledge can be crammed on a felt board. Visualize a sky blue background, representing God's creation. In the center a totally red figure is placed, representing man in his sin, separated from God. Directly over the character place a totally white figure. This is Christ Jesus in all of His glory!
Do you remember where sinful man is? (He represents you and me when outside of a personal relationship with Christ.) He is hidden in Christ! "For you have died (to self) and your life is hidden with Christ in God (Colossians 3:3 NAS)." When the Father looks at us, He sees His Son in all His glory! We need felt board faith!
