IT TAKES THE RIGHT ARTIST

Jesus Did It!

By: Ronald Cox

Sometimes I feel like a piece of marble that someone started to make a man out of.  Beings they really didn’t know what they were doing, they cut and chiseled until they said, “I can’t make anything out of this," so they cast it aside.

I laid around for years – damaged - something nobody really wanted - until the right artist came along and looked at me … chipped and scared, cracked and disfigured. 

Because God had given her a gift to make something beautiful out of old stuff, she looked at the disfigured piece of marble, thinking: That piece of marble would really be hard to work with.  But as she looked longer and more intently at the piece of marble, God gave her a vision of something inside of the marble that no one else could see. 

I can hear her saying to herself, “Yes, Lord, I see it.  With Your help I can save this piece of marble.  I can bring what is inside of it out for all to see for Your glory; what no one else can see.”

So she started to chisel.  Chips flew everywhere - some hitting her and hurting her.  Sometimes she wondered if the pain was worth it.  But this wanting to pull out of the marble what God showed her would not leave. 

She kept on working.  She began to see the new coming out.  The old was being chipped away.  Out of the old damaged piece of marble, the new started to come.

She was thinking … Others could only see the flaws, but God showed me the future locked up in the cold, rejected piece of marble.  Something that was set aside as worthless having no potential to be used for anything is being made beautiful in the hands of the artist who was being trained by the Master artist.  

Yes, God showed her - the right artist for the assignment - what to do. 

Now here in front of the artist stands a new person in Christ.  The artist has done her work.  The artist was limited by the limits of her talents, but through God there are no limits. 

You see, God starts the work from the inside with those who will ask Him to, and works until His work manifests itself on the outside. 

When the artist was finished, she had made a new creation.  The most beautiful thing that God had ever created through her.  Many will see the work of the human artist and will marvel at the talent God has given her.

Father, open our minds and hearts to the limitless potential we have through You.  Help us to grow in the likeness of Christ through your Holy Spirit.  Take this piece of "marble" reading this, whoever it may be, and turn this special person into a beautiful masterpiece that only YOU can do, for Your glory and breathtaking majesty.

A Special Message:  http://www.precious-testimonies.com/Exhortations/f-j/HelpingShareTheMessageOfTheCross.htm


Dear Reader - are you at peace with God?  If not, you can be.  Do you know what awaits you when you die?  You can have the assurance from God that heaven will be your home, if you would like to be certain.  Either Jesus Christ died for your sins, or He didn't (He did!).  Are you prepared to stand before God on the Judgment Day and tell Him that you didn't need the shed blood of Jesus Christ on the Cross to have your sins forgiven and get in right-standing with God?  We plead with you...please don't make such a tragic mistake.

To get to know God, to be at peace with God, to have your sins forgiven, to make certain heaven will be your home for eternity, to make certain that you are in right-standing with God right now ... please click here to help you understand the importance of being reconciled to God.  What you do about being reconciled to God will determine where you will spend eternity, precious one.  Your decision to be reconciled to God is the most important decision you'll ever make in this life, because in Christ, it is impossible to put a value on the worth of your soul in light of eternity.
