That We May Believe

There is power in God's Word.  There is life in its message. The gospel is woven throughout the pages of scripture from Genesis 1:1 to Revelation 22:21.  And all of it...ALL of it is written that we may believe that Jesus is the Messiah and the way to eternal life. It is the ONE path to relationship to the one true God. 

John, the beloved disciple of Jesus,  attested to the purpose of scripture in his gospel account, John 20:31.  God inspired the hearts of ordinary people who loved their Lord to inspire the hearts of ordinary people that they might believe and follow too.  Every word of scripture is God-breathed, God-inspired, true and trustworthy.  God's Word points us to the way of life in Christ, the only real life there is.  We might exist apart from the Word, but we cannot really live without believing the message it contains. 

 My page was created with watercolor paints and an aqua brush.  I stamped the images in Staz-on ink (dark gray), heat set the ink and then watercolored.  I used Tim Holtz Distress ink in Vintage Photo to accent the edges of the page for a vintage look.  I've been practicing on my hand lettering and was more pleased with this outcome than most.  That is just not my forte!

May your week be blessed and may you hide your heart in the Word of God 
and be refreshed there again and again!
