Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, Donatello, Raphael, Rembrandt, Matisse, El Greco, Renoir, Picasso are some of the master painters of all time. But do you know who is the greatest painter of all eternity? God is the greatest painter of all time. He uses our very lives as His very own canvas. He starts with a bold color of sparkling yellow very much like the rays of the sun at the onset of our lives. Then different hues and cascading colors follow suit in a never ending succession of colors and tints. To us, who cannot see it all, it seems like our own canvas has no meaning and is just a jumbled and unintelligible mixtures of colors, some joyous and others somber and gray. But to the greatest Painter of all eternity, our canvas is a dazzling masterpiece that He so proudly shows off to all the angelic hosts. The Bible says that we are fearfully and wonderfully made (Psalm 139:14) and that we are the pinnacle of God's creation because we were made in the likeness and image of God (Genesis 1:26). God uses all kinds of colors, even the dull and seemingly unattractive ones. It is very clear in His mind the concept of His finished product. In reality, we may undergo so many trials that represent the gray and seemingly dull colors on our canvas, but at the end, God's masterpiece will show the greatest work of His hands. And what is that work? A life changed and transformed to the glory of His beloved Son- Jesus Christ.
