The Unseen Corners: Where We Least Expect

Often, we reserve our religious symbols for places of worship or traditional spots within our homes. But what if we took a different approach? Placing these mini Jesus figurines in the least likely places can serve as a gentle nudge, a momentary pause in our day to reconnect with our faith. It’s in the drawer of your office desk, the glove compartment of your car, or tucked away in your suitcase during travels. (See full list below) These figures bid us to remember that spirituality isn’t confined to certain locations or times; it’s a constant, a companion on our journey.

A Reminder: A Little Jesus Goes a Long Way

A small figurine of Jesus can have a big impact. It’s a visual and physical representation of our beliefs, a tangible connection to the divine. It reminds us that even the smallest act of kindness, the simplest word of encouragement, carries the spirit of Jesus’s teachings. It’s a testament to the idea that a little Jesus – goes a long way in bringing light into our lives and the lives of those around us.

Hiding Mini Jesus figurines

A church’s youth group placed two hundred little plastic Jesus toys around their church as a sweet moment for the community¹. These figurines were placed in various locations like by the coffee, on the thermostat, and by the soap dispenser. The idea was that everyone in the church would leave with a little “Jesus” to accompany them through the week¹.

Similarly, another churches had children hide tiny Jesus figures all over the church as a reminder that they are present, fill the hallways and classrooms, and represent the future of the church². This act serves as a symbolic gesture to remind the congregation of the younger generation’s role and presence within the church community.

I placed him there. Watched a few customer look at the mini Jesus. Saw to employees just glance and kept walking by. I’d like to stay longer to see how long the mini Jesus would stay, but I was on lunch break and had to go back to work. I was in the place maybe 20 minutes.

Jesus can set our off balanced scales and accepts us as we are. Then He will change us. #MiniJesus

You will never know where Jesus will find you. He is seeking after you. He leaves the 99!

It’s important to note that these figurines are symbolic and serve as a reminder of faith; they are not meant to be worshipped themselves. The practice seems to be a creative way to engage communities, especially children, in faith-based activities and to bring a sense of joy and reflection on the presence of Christ in various aspects of life.

Pretty much you can find Jesus anywhere and everywhere.

Where else can you hide the little Jesus figurines?

Feel free to share in the comments.

Add gospel tracts

Maybe you can add a gospel tract along with the mini Jesusqit figurine. That way you can add a gospel presentation along with the little Jesus. Make sure it’s a sound Biblical gospel tract.

When offering gospel tracts or miniature Jesus figurines, it’s important to also provide a customary tip if one is expected. These items should not replace the financial gratuity that service workers rely on.

You can find these mini Jesus figurines usually on Amazon, Oriental Trading, and other places online. 

In conclusion, these mini Jesus figurines are more than just ornaments; they are bids for us to carry Jesus with us, in all places and at all times. They remind us that our faith isn’t just for the moments we expect but also for the moments we don’t. Let’s embrace the journey, placing a little Jesus in the places we least expect, and watch as His love and teachings subtly transform our everyday lives.

This blog post aims to inspire readers to find unique ways to incorporate their faith into their daily lives, using mini Jesus figurines as a symbol of the ever-present nature of spiritual guidance and love.

Feel free to share your experiences in finding a mini Jesus or hiding the Little Jesus figurines in the comments. Include other lessons that can be incorporated by these tiny figurines.
