Transformed by the Cross

When we come to know Jesus and the price that He paid, with His life, for us to be reconnected with our Father and Creator, there is a transformation that begins to take place in our lives.  God takes us from a place of darkness, lonliness and shame where we are bound by the chains of sin in our lives...(sins of idolatry, immorality, perversion, addiction, unforgiveness, pride....etc) and then he moves us into a place of light where His mercy, forgiveness, grace and favor shine upon us.  The place where the fire of His Spirit stirs within us and leads us to places of victory where we before only knew defeat.  It is a place where the anointing for change rains down like rain and brings us to a place of success, prosperity and abundance in our lives.  The crown in this painting represents the priviledge that we have to experience live as the children of the King of Kings.  The Cross of Calvary is where a hopeless, desperate soul receives hope and grace for future.

Scripture references:  John 3:16-17, Hebrews 12:28-29, Acts 2:1-4, Jeremiah 29:11, and 1 Corinthians 2:9
