Have you heard the story about the sculptor? He was hard at work with his hammer and his chisel. Chips of stone were flying around.
An onlooker asked, “What are you making?”
“A horse,” the sculptor replied.
“How do you know how to turn a block of stone into a horse?” asked the onlooker.
“It is actually very easy,” said the sculptor. “You just knock off anything that doesn’t look like a horse.”
I have used this story many times as I teach people about the life of Christ, and being remade into his image. I usually say, “And that is what God does in our lives. He chips off anything that doesn’t look like Jesus.”
Today, I watched this story. It’s a powerful telling of how our Father lovingly forms us into the image of his Son.
