I used oil pastel-coloured felt to make lilies to remind us to consider the lilies which are so beautifully clothed by God. God cares for the lilies which are here today and gone tomorrow, and His promise is that He will provide for us too. I also made white lilies of the valley on the right to remind us to consider the Lily of the Valley, the Lord Jesus Christ, who is holy and humble and came into the world to die on the cross to save sinners such as us so that we can have hope!
The ram’s horn or shofar is most recognised as a musical instrument to call the people to repentance, for war, to worship and healing. But a ram’s horn is also frequently used as an instrument to carry the Oil used in anointing, praying for the sick, for consecration and as a mark of God’s spirit upon the person. The believer is to be like a ram’s horn – a call to God’s salvation – the hope in Christ but also a storage instrument of blessing to others. The purple background is a reminder of our royal priesthood.
