Walking through the rooms filled with the work of budding young artists, people dutifully praised the developing talents of the students. In the corner of one of the rooms, however, a crowd gathered around a painting. Even the usual hushed tones reserved for libraries and art galleries had given way to exclamations which result when coming upon a masterpiece. “This couldn’t have been done by one of the students,” gasped one man. Another person said, “There’s something about this painting. It has to be the work of a master. It just doesn’t fit with the other pieces.”
There was a man who lived 4000 years ago. His name was Abraham. Although he was reasonably prosperous, there wasn’t much else about him that would lead people to call him a “masterpiece”. But then God got a hold of him and everything changed. The result? Through Abraham, God altered human history. But that’s what happens when the Master works in human lives.
If you are feeling as though your life resembles more of a second hand piece of art rather than a masterpiece, join us for one of our worship services this weekend. If God made a masterpiece out of Abraham’s life, why can’t he do the same for us?
For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago. (Ephesians 2:10)
Worship service times: Saturday: 6:00 pm, Sunday: 9:00 am & 10:30 am.
