Leonardo da Vinci ranks as one of the most curious and creative minds in history. Born on April 15,1452, Leonardo dreamed of things never before imagined: A flying machine, a parachute, and extendable ladder, the bicycle, an adjustable monkey wrench, hydraulic jacks, a water-powered alarm clock, and for all of you concert lovers, the world’s first revolving stage. Leonardo carried a notebook with him wherever he went . It’s estimated that Da Vinci left fourteen thousand pages of notes to Francesco Melzi in his will. Nearly seven thousand pages still exist. In 1994 Bill Gates purchased 18 pages for $30.8 million.

In the final days leading up to his death on May2, 1519, Leonardo apologized to God and to man for: “ leaving so much undone.”

God has created each of us with the capacity to keep learning until the day we die. And that isn’t something we should take for granted. The average brain is only the size of a softball and weighs approximately 3 pounds, yet neurologist estimate that we have the capacity to learn something new every second of every minuter of every hour of every day for the next  three hundred million years. According to a 2010 article in Scientific American the memory capacity of the human brain was reported to have the equivalent of 2.5 petabytes of memory capacity.  That is more capacity that the IRS data storage facility!

God created you with a great capacity to do great things. He created you for His purpose and His glory so that we can know Him and declare Him to others.

1 Peter 2:9 (NASB95)

9 But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for God’s own possession, so that you may proclaim the excellencies of Him who has called you out of darkness into His marvelous light;

God had invited you into the most exciting journey in history.

I love you, Pastor Randy
