Recovery in the BIble (RIB)

Coming to Him as to a living stone, rejected indeed by men, but chosen by God and precious, you also, as living stones, are being built up in a spiritual house, a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.
(1 Peter 2:4-5).

For me, the above painting captures The Service of Surrender in Song. It captures how it feels to sing as new creations in Christ by His Holy Spirit before the Father. Perhaps this painting is a glimpse at how our praise appears before our heavenly Father: radiant, brilliant, and bright; infinite in colors and scents and sounds; precious jewels. Each of us, transposed to glorify Christ by the abundant -- no, LAVISH -- overflow of the Holy Spirit from within us. Before the Father, in Christ, radiating thanks and praise -- forever.

I believe I could sing eternally in such an amazing array. Singing is one of my joys, most of all when joined with others, each voice carrying its own singular part -- yet in total harmony. Generating one brilliant HIM of praise. In one accord. A CHORD!

This painting by Claudia Wood Rahm is entitled Living Stones.
