“…and he inviteth them all to come unto him and partake of his goodness; and he denieth none that come unto him, black and white, bond and free, male and female;…”– 2 Nephi 26:33
I continue to be amazed at how much Jesus Christ wants us to have a relationship with Him. He doesn’t just want us to know about Him, He wants us to know Him, to develop a personal relationship with Him. And so when creating this painting, I wanted the focus of this painting to be on His hand, on the invitation extended. A reminder that “His hand is stretched out still” (Isaiah 9:12). He’s there waiting, we just have to reach out and take it.
“Behold, I stand at the door, and knock; if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.” – Revelation 3:20
