How can God make a masterpiece when we splatter paint all over His canvas? We are His canvas.
What types of paint do we use to do this?
Anything that takes away from the glory of God and opens the door to evil; any form of addictions, lack of devotion to God and His word, compromise, loving this world, elevating oneself, using our words to destroy rather than edify, bitterness, jealousy, anger, rage, slander, lack of self control, cussing, any form of using God's name in vain, unrepentant heart, stubbornness, obstinate, defiant, prideful, attention getter, seeking affirmation from others rather than seeking it from God, boastful, arrogant, delighting in pleasure rather than delighting in God, domination, power hungry, abusive, condescending, mocking, devaluing, selfish, greedy, obscene talk, obnoxious to upset others, doing all the talking and never listening or caring about others, seeking your own good without regard for other's feelings or opinions, bullying, coercing, lying to get what you want, blaming others for your actions, discard any responsibility or be accountable for any bad outcomes or results due to careless decisions, practicing idolatry in any form, esteeming man rather than worshiping God alone, lack of faith or trust in God by attitudes demonstrated and decisions made, failing to do what God has told you to do instead being disobedient to His will, walking on the wide path rather than the narrow one, testing God in choices you make to see what you can get away with, regarding sharing the Gospel low priority while making other things higher priority, believing doctrines of demons that are being told you while not using discernment through God's Holy Spirit, doing new age and occult practices.
So if we want our canvas to be transformed into the likeness of Jesus, we need to search our hearts to see where we are splattering paint all over God's canvas. Do we want to be like a beautiful masterpiece or our own work of art that is not glorifying to our Father?
Galatians 2:20 (KJV)
I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.
