While on vacation, I took two of my granddaughters to a ceramics studio. I have not been to one in over 30 years! I had a very hard time picking out the one I wanted to paint. There was a very large selection of ceramic pieces to choose from.
Finally, I saw the one I wanted! After painting it two different colors/ways…and not being satisfied…I finally chose one all over color and then different colored “spots.”
I am a very visual person. One of the dot colors I chose was black. It immediately didn’t feel right and I stopped and waited for inspiration. I immediately thought – black symbolizes our sin. I then found myself reaching for the red paint and painting over the black with red. The blood of Christ shed on the cross for us cleanses us from our sin! His blood redeems us/frees us from the power of sin and restores us into right relationship to Father God! Hallelujah!!
“…you were not redeemed with perishable things like silver or gold from your futile way of life inherited from your forefathers, but with precious blood, as of a lamb unblemished and spotless, the blood of Christ.”
1 Peter 1:18-19
“…if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved;”. Romans 10:9
“For this is the will of My Father, that everyone who beholds the Son and believes in Him will have eternal life, and I Myself will raise him up on the last day.”” John 6:40
I bless you, my friends, and speak this blessing over you:
“Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that you will abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.” Romans 15:13
AMEN & AMEN!
