Preparing For Worship
Leading up to Sunday, July 16
William Holman-Hunt’s painting, The Light of the World (about 1900-1904), is the world’s most traveled piece of artwork and is often referred to as a “sermon in a painting.” At the bottom of the piece is a verse from our passage this week.
Behold I stand at the door and knock. If any man hear my voice
and open the door I will come in to him and will sup with him
and he with me. -Revelation 3:20
As you prepare your heart for worship, take some time looking at this symbolically rich piece. Notice the many visual metaphors that are found across scripture. Prayerfully allow the various elements of this painting to help you consider where Jesus is standing in your own life right now.
