Apart & United with Creator

SS9_ApartSS10_United with creator

The red and white hearts that have been placed apart represent the distance between God and sinners without the grace bought by Jesus on the cross.

The red heart in the second picture  has a white heart in the centre which shows how  God’s grace enables a personal relationship with God the father. The white heart in the center of the red heart shows how the believer becomes a ‘new creation’ after choosing to life a life in relationship and obedience to God. The heart represents how the Holy Spirit is at work on the inside of the believer’s heart.

The Grace Equation

SS12_The grace equation

The red heart represents someone who does not know God and has a sinful state of heart. The bracket containing the white heart with red stripes (representing Jesus who died for the sins of the world) in addition to the sinner who repents of their sins (red heart) and becomes an adopted child into the family of God. The end of the equation shows a red heart with a white heart in the middle representing Jesus who lives in that person’s heart and life.

Lost Now Found & Blind Now I See

These two works ‘Lost now found’ and ‘Blind now I see’ come from the lyrics of the timeless hymn ‘Amazing Grace’ written by John Newton. The lyrics reflect the writer’s immense humility and gratitude at being forgiven a lifetime of sins.

“Amazing grace, how sweet the sound

That saved a wretch like me.

I once was lost, but now I’m found.

‘Twas blind, but now I see.”
