The ceiling of the Sistine Chapel is one of the world’s greatest works of art. For more than 400 years, Michelangelo’s masterpiece was only visible via sunlight and candlelight. Sadly, soot from the burning candles eventually obscured the brilliance of the priceless painting. It eventually took a team of artists 13 years to restore the ceiling to its original glory. Before restoration, some in the art community criticized Michelangelo’s work as too dark, monochromatic, and bland. And yet, when the frescoes were returned to their original state, everyone saw them for what they truly were—breathtakingly beautiful and vibrant. Similarly, for us, the years of soot, grime, and dust of daily life can cloud our vision of God’s glory and majesty. And how is our view of God restored? Through worship. Join us as Psalm 96 brings us back to the splendor of God’s holiness.
