The teacher asked us to reflect on what “Repent for the kingdom of heaven is at hand,” means to us, then paint it.
This is not a detailed work of art. It’s a quick painting done during an evening of worship. As I thought about her question, this image is what came to mind.
I understand “repent” to mean change thought and direction.
The cross of Christ is the intersection where time and the eternal, and the physical and supernatural meet.
Jesus has broken every barrier down and his grace gives us the ability to change direction.
We enter everything God has for us — the Kingdom — through the cross.
