Healed by His Stripes

SS7_Healed by His Stripes

The painting represents Jesus when He died on the cross and the significance of His sacrifice. The white heart represents Jesus as fully God, but in the form a man (heart shape) and the red stripes represent the sins, diseases and iniquities that were all paid for in this act of ultimate love. As stated by the prophet Isaiah (about Jesus) “Yet it was our weaknesses he carried; it was our sorrows that weighed him down. And we thought his troubles were a punishment from God, a punishment for his own sins! But he was pierced for our rebellion, crushed for our sins. He was beaten so we could be whole. He was whipped so we could be healed.” (Isaiah 53:5, NLT)

Fragment to Freedom

F7_Fragment to freedom

The cracked red heart represents a state brokenness and vulnerability of the human heart. The painting shows a types of mathematical ‘equation’ of illustrating how brokenness can be healed and made whole in Jesus. The bible states that His death on the cross paid the price to take away the sins and pain of the world to those who ask (Isaiah 53:5). “Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.” (1 Peter 5:7). Free of anxieties, this is the freedom found in trusting God.
