Postured in Expectancy: A Bookmark Project
Making a personalised bookmark is always fun to do. It can be for yourself or you can make it for someone else. Our design is inspired by The Parable of the Ten Virgins, found in Matthew chapter 25 verses 1-13. We focussed on the 5 ladies who kept awake, alert, and their lamps lit in expectation of the anticipated bridegroom’s arrival. The bible’s use of the word “virgin” is to signify the bride of Christ which is the church, you & I, being ready, and being made spotless- pure, by the Jesus’s sacrifice for our sin on the cross. The bridegroom is a metaphor for Jesus. Jesus according to the Word of God is going to return one day. As believers and followers of Jesus Christ it is up to us to be ready for his return. The anticipation of Jesus’s return is not meant to be ominous in nature, but something to look forward to in eager expectation.
So, the idea of creating a bookmark to illustrate this parable is also about communicating the idea of being excited and not wanting to miss out on the next chapter of what Jesus is doing.
