Mankind...the Masterpiece of God's Creation
Below is an illustration depicting God's creation of Adam from
the paintings in the Sistine Chapel in Rome. They were created by
Michelangelo between 1508 and 1512
and are still today considered among the greatest works of art of all time. But even his masterpiece pales in comparison to God's masterpiece: YOU!
Perhaps you don't see yourself as a great work of art. But wait! God isn't finished with you yet! After all, it took Michelangelo 5 years to create his paintings in the Sistine Chapel. And, as we all know, even Rome wasn't built in one day! God is the Master Painter; we are His workmanship (Ephesians 2:10). We can be sure that "He who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus" (Philippians 1:6).
But maybe your colors have become a bit faded. Or perhaps there are parts of your canvas where God hasn't even started painting yet. We have just the thing for you! Take five or six months to come to Italy, and place yourself before the Master Painter. Let Him paint your life with His character as He takes you one step closer to becoming the masterpiece He has created you to be!
First, let God paint some broad background strokes into your life as by taking part in one of our conferences. Afterwards you can let Him paint in some of the finer details … perhaps by following on with our Bible School.
