This ball of light is Christ laying on a rock, as the powers of Darkness seep through him, during his atonement for our sins.

Above this small detail, The Destroyer, in the form of a great beast, pushes down on his body, and looks up in disdain as an angel descends from Heaven, to comfort Christ through his suffering. 

Below Christ and The Destroyer, chains that bind the Olive Tree (and all of us) to Hell are beginning to break.

This piece brings together many beliefs I have about the sacrifice of Christ for me.

As I have studied scripture, and works of fiction that have alluded to the atonement, such as CS Lewis's work "The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe", I have come to know my Savior as a being of great light and love. I know that he took on my debt, to allow Mercy to replace Justice.

I will be forever grateful.
He lives.

The Futile Escape of Jonah

I have always been fascinated by the story of Jonah. Here is a man who truly dedicated his whole life to his God - until one day the task just was too hard. And God provided a way for him to try again, and understand that all of God’s children were worth saving.

But (spoiler) even after he fulfilled his task, he didn’t understand. He didn’t get that God cared about everyone, and that - just like he got another chance after leaving knowingly - the people of Ninevah (who hadn’t even realized they were so far off) got another chance as well. Jonah ends in a beautiful way for the people of Ninevah, and very unsatisfying for Jonah, who chooses to sit and wait for a destruction that would never come.

May we all see the worth of those around us, and rejoice when we see others change, instead of holding over their heads all that they have forsaken.
