I think the most fascinating aspects of ‘man’ is the fact that he can create art, and music, and speak words that bring about change and of course the ability to read, and especially God’s Word, the Holy Bible. And the reason for all this wonderfulness in man is simply because we were created in the image of God! (Not your pets, or any animal at the zoo, for that matter!) GOD is the Master Artist in our lives, He is the Song to give us strength for the day, and He is the Word which gives us life.
But I think the hardest aspect of man is the fact that we all have ‘fallen bodies’ prone to sin, (because Adam sinned, we all sinned). And the result of the fall is -death. BUT, to those whose hearts, minds and souls have believed on Jesus, because ‘the wages of sin is death but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord’- there is a life- forevermore!’
There is a body that we will have from God, a body not made with hands, eternal in the heavens! (2Cor. 5) The Master Artist has gone to prepare a place for us. The Master Artist is at work in each of us – but we can’t see the canvas. We can only feel the strokes of the brush- and sometimes they don’t feel gentle. What is going on? We ask because we can’t make sense of it all.
Today, help me trust that You know what You are doing in and through every aspect in my life, for we are Your workmanship. Be my Song of strength for today and bring color in my otherwise ‘pale’ life through Your word, this day. Be glorified.
1John 3:2-3) Dear Friends, now we are children of God, and what we will be has not yet been made known. But we know that when he appears, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is.
SONG:.. “and on that day when my strength is failing, the end draws near and my time has come. Still my soul will sing His Praise unending, 10,000 years and then forevermore! Bless the LORD, O my soul…”
