      Legend has it that Michelangelo painted with a brush in one hand and a candle in the other to prevent his shadow from covering his masterpiece in progress.
      Thats the kind of attitude we should adopt if we are serious about wanting to display the masterpiece of God’s glory on the canvas of our lives. Unfortunately, we tend to live in a way that draws attention to ourselves, our cars, our clothes, our careers, our position, our cleverness, our success. And when life is all about us, its hard for people to see Jesus in us. Jesus saved us to be reflections of His glory (Rom. 8:29), but when we live for ourselves, our shadow gets cast on the canvas of His presence in us.
      When the believers in Corinth were feeling too full of themselves, Paul warned them “that no flesh should glory boast in His presence” (1Cor.1:29), and reminded them of what Jeremiah said, “He who glories, let him glory in the Lord” (v.31; Jer.9:24).
      Think of your life as a canvas on which a picture is being painted. What would you rather have people see: the masterpiece of the presence of Jesus or the shadow of your own profile? Don’t get in the way of a great painting in progress. Live to let others see Jesus in you.

      My life is a painting created by God, And as such I've nothing to boast; reflecting the image of Christ to the world is what I desire the most. Sper
