A budding artist once painted a picture of the Last Supper. He took it to the writer Tolstoy for his opinion. Carefully and understandingly the Russian master of words studied the canvas. Then pointing to the central Figure, he declared: “You do not love Him.” “Why that is the Lord Jesus Christ,” exclaimed the artist. “I know,” insisted Tolstoy, “but you do not love Him. If you loved Him more, you would paint Him better.”
Our message today deals with Our Service for the Lord. Perhaps we can learn from these words from Tolstoy and say that our Love for the Lord will determine the quality of our service for Him. The more we love Him, the better would be our service.
