I absolutely love this picture. I love to see how grace and skill and training all come together and make something so beautiful. So, I saved the picture until I could put it with a scripture. Here’s what I decided–
Therefore, my dear friends, as you have always obeyed—not only in my presence, but now much more in my absence—continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling, for it is God who works in you to will and to act in order to fulfill his good purpose.
Isn’t it also beautiful to see God’s purpose fulfilled from His grace, the gifts of His Holy Spirit to us, and the work that we offer at His altar? The bible says that His purpose is good, and that He will accomplish all of it. We are so richly blessed to be chosen by Him, adopted as His own, and to have His purpose as our own.
For His glory,
