Wednesday, July 28th. Today's cherished Nugget from guest blogger Pastor Bill.

Leonardo da Vinci had started work on a large canvas in his studio. For awhile he worked at it—choosing the subject, planning the perspective, sketching the outline, applying the colors, with his own inimitable genius. Then suddenly he ceased, the painting still unfinished, and, summoning one of his students, invited him to complete the work. The student protested that he was both unworthy and unable to complete the great painting which his master had begun. But da Vinci silenced him. “Will not what I have done inspire you to do your best?”

Our Master began two thousand years ago—by what He said, by what He did, and supremely by what He suffered. He illustrated His message and He has left us to finish the picture.

In the challenging times or our lives, we need to be encouraged by the words of the apostle Paul in Colossians 1:9-11:
“For this cause we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you, and to desire that ye might be filled with the knowledge of his will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding; That ye might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God; Strengthened with all might, according to his glorious power, unto all patience and longsuffering with joyfulness.”
"God, the trust You have placed in us is awesome; may we walk worthy. Amen."

Bro. Bill

God loves you!
