An amazing story is making headlines today that seems to be a real miracle! A historic church went up in flames and destroyed nearly everything inside. However, one amazing painting was left virtually untouched!

According to Fox News, a lightning strike reportedly ignited a massive inferno Tuesday night at the 150-year-old First Baptist Church in Wakefield, Massachusetts, destroying almost everything inside -- but amid the rubble, crews miraculously found one painting survived the hellish flames.

Now, that painting is being revealed. It was a beautiful image of our Lord Jesus! The painting was said to have been hanging just inside the church's doors. It was free of any fire or smoke damage and simply had a few "drops" of water on it.

“It’s a beautiful sign of hope and a reminder that Jesus is with us,” church member Maria Kakolowski told Boston 25. “I am personally just taking it as a sign and a reminder that the Jesus, the Christ that we serve is still alive and even though our church building is gone, our church is here. The God that we serve is still here.”

The fire started from a massive storm that hit the Boston area this week. Thankfully, no parishioners were hurt in the flames. Crews are currently working to demolish the burned remains and rebuild the church.
