Week 7 - I AM THE RESURRECTION AND THE LIFE

Happy Easter.  The painting is finished and was on display for the Easter message about the Resurrection.  When Jesus was informed of the death of Lazarus and went to see Mary and Martha, he said to Martha, "I am the resurrection and the life.  He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live.  And whoever lives and believes in Me shall never die.  Do you believe this?  She said to him "Yes, Lord, I believe that You are the Christ, the Son of God, who is to come into the world."  Pastor Sara had us read this using the word "trust" in place of the four "believes."  This was a powerful message.

I have enjoyed this challenge and learned so much from it.  At times I felt that I was just moving the brush and the painting came to life.

The painting will be in the First United Methodist Church in Watertown.  If there is interest shown in purchasing prints of it, I have turned the right to do that over to the Church.
