So Then Faith Comes By Hearing
by Minnie Adkins-76
This one tickles my heart because you don’t really get the big picture until you start investigating the figures and see what they are reading in thier little books. Their facial expressions are priceless. I mean even the animals are hearing God’s Word. Some people are raising arms, some are kneeling in prayer and some are singing. All shapes, sizes and varieties of people!
The Preacher is preaching from Romans 10:17 ( I am using the MESSAGE)
A sight to take your breath away!
Grand processions of people
telling all the good things of God!
But not everybody is ready for this, ready to see and hear and act. Isaiah asked what we all ask at one time or another: “Does anyone care, God? Is anyone listening and believing a word of it?” The point is: Before you trust, you have to listen. But unless Christ’s Word is preached, there’s nothing to listen to.
Look at the faces…look at the sun ( SON) shining in the sky, do you think people are hearing the message in this painting?
Because it is being shared!
Are we sharing God’s Amazing Grace with the people around us?
That’s what Minnie has done in this painting. She is sharing God’s Word for those who will see and hear and believe.
I love you Minnie Adkins!
…and by the way….the choir is singing “Amazing Grace!”
Note the eyes-looking to heaven!
