Christian Pumpkin: How is a Pumpkin like being a Christian?

Have you wondered how pumpkin relates to Christian? We got the below message from CJ's School Newsletter.

How is a Pumpkin like being a Christian?

A woman was asked by a coworker, What is it like to be a Christian?" The Coworker replied, "It's like being a pumpkin. God picks you from the patch, brings you in, and washes all the dirt off you may have gotten from the other pumpkins.Then he cuts the top off and scoops out all the yucky stuff. He removes the seeds of doubt, hate, greed, etc. Then He carves you a new smiling face and puts His light inside of you to shine for all the world to see."

CJ also bought the construction paper Jack-o-lantern craft from school. They made it to go along with the Christian Jack O' Lantern Poem.

I am a Jack O' Lantern, my light will shine so bright
For I am a Christian pumpkin, my symbols tell what's right.

My nose is like the cross, on which our Savior died
To set us free from sin, we need no longer hide.

My mouth is like a fish, the whole wide world to show
That Christians live in this house and love their Savior so!

The story starts at Christmas, my eyes are like the star
That shone on Baby Jesus and wise men saw from afar.

My color it is orange, just like the big bright sun
That rose on Easter Day, along with Gods' own Son.

And so on Halloween, let's set our pumpkins out
And tell the trick or treaters, what Gods' love is all about!
