This painting is an illustration of the difference between knowing you are free and acting like it. For many who have heard the story of Christ since childhood it has become just that; a story. That is a lie. The life, death and triumphant resurrection of Jesus is a life shattering, powerful reality that has the capacity to set you free to explore life with the very Spirit of God. All it takes is surrender. We have an entirely unexplored landscape of God laid before us and we can choose to stay put. Think it’s a nice story, legs crossed, arms folded. Comfortable. Predictable. Bored. Or we can embrace all that God is offering us. “This is eternal life that they might know the Father and the one whom the Father has sent.” Eternal life starts now. It starts with knowing God. This is not a safe ‘knowing’. This is a ‘mess up your world’ kind of knowing. The adventure you were made for. Say yes and take Him at His word.
