An Art Lesson

When it comes to rendering a sketch, there’s nothing like having the real thing in front of you to study.

Hi, I'm Joni Eareckson Tada and when it comes to rendering a sketch, there’s nothing like having the real thing in front of you to study. If I’m working on a painting of poinsettias, I have to have fresh poinsettias to learn from. And what is true for the artist, is true for the believer. So many Christians only get to know the Lord through a friend’s testimony or someone else’s story, but that will never do! First John chapter 3 says, “We know that we have come to know him if we obey his commands.” You see, every time you choose to follow His commands over your ways, you are getting to know Jesus. But you can’t know what those commands are unless you spend time in Scripture. So, my challenge for you today? Put the real thing: an open Bible in front of you to study. And then, follow His word. Cause when you do, you’re getting to know the real Jesus.
