What Wondrous Love Is This?

April 4th, 2010 admin No comments

What wondrous love is this?

Who cannot be moved by the story of Jesus’ last days?…..A strong and gentle teacher/rabbi, who brought truth into the world.  Someone who so upset the local religious and state powers of his time that they they wanted to execute him for sedition.  First, he was scourged, beaten, and mocked, but eventually the state decreed that he would be crucified, according to the customs of the day.

This man of Nazareth taught people about helping the poor,  the widows and children.   Showing unusual tolerance for his time, he was often found among people like tax collectors, women who’d committed adultery, lepers……those whom no self-righteous person would be caught dead with.

Hypocrisy was something he particularly couldn’t abide, and he called people on it time and again:  the money-changers in the temples, the Pharisees, those who would rather “talk” about how much money they donated, rather than getting out there and actually using their hands to do good.

As the Son of God, he was sent here to save mankind.   He healed the sick, made the blind see, and the lame walk.  He even raised a close friend from the dead.   He knew all the terrible pain and suffering that lay ahead for him, yet he persisted in telling the truth.

Finally, in the most astounding and profound demonstration of love and forgiveness, he forgave those who brought him to Calvary and nailed him to the cross…..and then he gave up his life………for us.

Today we celebrate his resurrection from death, by which we are promised that we, too, will join him in new life,  one day in heaven.

What wondrous love is this?

When I create an oil painting, there is a tremendous amount of time spent in composition, layout, photography and otherwise planning for the final piece. Sometimes it feels like I spend more time getting ready to paint than actually painting. But when I sketch, there is to get in the way of my imagination. I finished this sketch while waiting to catch a plane in the Chicago airport. At one point I…

Driving through a parking lot, I saw a boy and his father coming out of a store. The boy was imagining himself as a mighty hero, but he looked at his father with more admiration than any hero is likely to receive. Right then, I knew I had to paint “Even Superman Needs a Dad.”

This father took an interest in everthing his son had to say. Every moment seemed magical. While this little boy looked a …

I remember the first time I was left alone with my newborn son. The overwhelming feeling of love accompanied by the fear of caring for this little soul. As I grow older I see that there is a natural reversal of roles and the child becomes the caregiver for the parent. I think this reversal was part of Mary’s relationship with her Son. She cared for Him as a helpless infant, watching him grow in st…
