What A Masterpiece...

The other night I stood outside watching a magnificent sunset, capturing it with my camera, as it went through all of it's stages, wiping tears and thanking God for what He has given us. 

Watching the progression of the sunset it reminded me of how we are as Christians.
As you can see in the picture the sunset is just beginning, it is beautiful, but oh the possibilities.  That is how we are when we first give our heart to the Lord.  We are so excited and those around us can see and feel our excitement.

"Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.  Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house."  Matthew 5:14, 15

As the sun sinks further the sky is constantly changing.  The soft blues are disappearing, the colors are getting deeper and taking on almost a rich feeling. 

As we get deeper in His word our colors begin to shine so to speak.  Our attitudes about things begin to change.  The more of His word we read the closer we feel to Him.  People can begin to see a change in us.

"Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature:  old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new."  2 Corinthians 5:17

When He finally finished His masterpiece it was beautiful.  He took a plain sky and created something beautiful just for us.  It is totally amazing what He can do, and no two are alike.  Just like what He did for each of us, with His amazing grace we became a Child of the King, His Child, an Heir to His Kingdom.  You can't get much better than that!  Amen!

until next time... nel
