Jesus’ wonderful promise in John 15:5 assures me that all I did in His strength is never in vain. As a child of God, I experience His protective arm on my shoulders. He plants joy in my heart as I obey Him, bear fruit that glorifies His Name, and watch Him multiply them!
My artwork depicts Father Abraham reaching his hands out toward the dark starry sky, in awe of the promise from God that his descendants will be as numerous as the stars. He had faith in God’s promise, and this was counted to him as righteousness. The painting is a rallying call to all Christians to have faith in God’s awesome promises and wait upon the Lord.
The Lord Jesus Christ died on the cross to pay the debt for our sins, and He rose again. He has gone to prepare a place for believers in Heaven, and has promised that He will come again for us. When He comes again, believers will be changed in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye (the time it takes for light to reflect off an eye), at the last trumpet, from corruptible to incorruptible, from mortal to immortal. We will meet Him in the air, and be with Him forevermore! Believe in Him, and share our blessed hope!
