“Redemption”

"Redemption" - Watercolor by Michele E. Struss.  Prints and notecards available at www.hispaintbrush.com.

In Old Testament days animal sacrifices were required for the forgiveness of sins and reconciliation with God; there had to be the shedding of blood. But years later, in New Testament times, this changed dramatically. With a love that defies all logic, God sent His Only Son, Jesus, as the ‘Lamb of God’ who gave His life to bear our sins…once and for all. Because sin had separated man from God, the Lamb’s life-blood not only pardoned sin, making a way back to God for even the worst sinner to have a personal relationship with Him, but it also gave access to His unlimited power to overcome.

In this painting God is handing down His sacrifice, the ‘Lamb of God’, into darkness where sin, disease and oppression thrive. However, the dying Lamb’s blood is washing over the words, removing their power and penalty. Each word has been hand written by different individuals who have experienced those very circumstances but have powerful stories of God’s forgiveness, healing, restoration and freedom. These testimonies bear witness to the fact that God redeems that which seems hopeless, no matter how imprisoned or destroyed a life may seem, when placed under the blood of Jesus. Nothing we have done or has been done to us can ever separate us from God’s love and power. Redemption is waiting…

“They overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony;” Revelation 12:11a
