LOOKING ONLY UNTO JESUS

Leonardo DaVinci was one of the greatest Italian painters of all time, and he is widely celebrated in history for his many talents and accomplishments. His most famous painting, “The Last Supper,” went through several revisions before it was finalized. When he was almost finished with this painting, he asked a fellow artist to come by and critique his work. The man studied the picture for a while and finally said, “The cups are magnificent. The detail you put on them is some of the best I’ve ever seen!” With that, DaVinci went over to the canvas and painted over the cups, for it wasn’t the cups he wanted the world to see. It was Christ! This is the passion of every true follower of Jesus Christ! We don’t want the eyes of this world to be drawn to the “cups” on the canvas of our lives, but we want all the attention to be focused on Him. We want our lives to be “vessels” for His honor and glory. All that we say and do must lift up His holy name, for He alone is worthy! Don’t let the “cups” on the canvas of your lives steal away the attention from Christ. Glorify His name in your service and proclaim the wonders of His love and grace. Christ alone is worthy!

Galatians 6.14

“But God forbid that I should boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world.”
