We Are The Canvas

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~

A Christian's life is the canvas on which others can see Jesus. Jesus saved us to be reflections of His glory, but when we live for ourselves, our shadow gets cast on the canvas of His presence in us. 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, it's hard for people to see Jesus in us. ~Joe Stowell~

No flesh should glory in His presence.
1 Corinthians 1:29

Those are great quotes and are oh so true! We need less of ourselves and more of Him! Great post!
