“The Bible is the greatest source of poetry
the world has ever known and
the world’s greatest work of art….
If every life inevitably moves towards its end,
we must during our own,
color it with the colors of love and hope….
For me, perfection in Art and in life
flows from the biblical spring.
Without that spirit, the mechanics of
logic and construction alone,
in Art as in life, will not bear fruit.”
– Marc Chagall
This quote by Marc Chagall is one of my favorites. I remember how my heart sang when I first read it. I agree with him wholeheartedly!
Romans 12:1-2 has been a favorite Scripture for decades. It is also a key verse for week 1 at His Kingdom Come Community of Faith. I have personalized the verse in the journal page below:
“I urge you therefore, brothers and sisters,
in view of Gods mercy,
to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice,
holy and pleasing to God –
this is your true and proper worship.
Do not conform to the pattern of this world,
but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.
Then you will be able to test what will of God’s will is –
his good, pleasing and perfect will.”
Romans 12:1-2 NIV
