Hello Everyone,

What is your life’s portrait? You might ask me what I mean by that question. The idea of a portrait is a portrayal. It is a defining image that leaves an impression and a lasting impact. A good portrait enables the observer to settle on the subject right away. So, what’s your life’s portrait?

We live in an era of self-portraits, sharing our selfies with the world and drawing attention to our best life. That’s ok for fun. But what portrait do you want to reflect to the world? When people look at your life, what will they settle on? As Christians we are called to be a portrait of Jesus; the expression of Him. Whist we all nod and agree, being a portrayal of Jesus can challenge us. The portrait of Jesus is loving, kind, just, merciful, holy, good, faithful, sacrificial, humble, obedient, giving, hospitable, forgiving. Thankfully Jesus, our artist is still producing our spiritual portraits. Let’s choose one thing and ask Jesus to produce this in us as our portrait’s signature; one fruit of the Spirit that will leave a lasting impact on others, causing them to draw conclusions about the greatest artist ever, Jesus.

So, friends, get your portrait on and show the world Jesus.

Perfect Love (Mary’s Song) By Darlene Zschech

My beautiful boy

Holiness I see

Perfect so pure

Your eyes they trust in me

All creation bows to You

The skies sing Your arriving

My precious Jesus

And You will walk this land

My precious gift from God

Showing all mankind

The only way to life

All creation sings Your praise

The angels will proclaim

My precious Jesus

All of heaven’s gaze is on You

The glory of God shines for all to see

The Son of God, the Son of man

You are perfection promised

Giver of life for all eternity

My little one, perfect love
