Woman Finds Masterpiece Worth Millions in her Kitchen
For many years, an elderly woman in Paris, France, had, what she thought, was an old copy of a painting hanging on a wall between her kitchen and sitting room, directly over a hotplate that she used for cooking food. The painting was called, “The Mocking of Christ”.
In September 2019, an auctioneer friend suggested she have it checked for authenticity, which she did, and was told it was an original masterpiece by the 13th-century Italian painter Cimabue, worth, perhaps, $6.5 million US, at auction! For years she thought it was worthless.
In October, 2019, the painting was put up for auction and was sold for $26.6 million US.
How many years did this woman struggle to get by, never realizing that she was sitting on a fortune!
Every Christian has an even greater Masterpiece, sitting in their Prayer Closet – Jesus Christ Himself!
How many Christians are there, struggling to get by in life, not knowing the vast power and riches they are sitting on? They live meager lives and wrestle against temptation and sin, and don’t know that they can have Victory and see Great answers to prayer, if they will but humble themselves before Jesus and start claiming His promises as found in the Bible.
By ALL MEANS, let us start today and realize the enormous wealth and power of the Prayer Closet!
John 16:23-24, And in that day ye shall ask me nothing. Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name, he will give it you. Hitherto have ye asked nothing in my name: ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full.
