Version en Espaņol
The picture Forgiven reveals the heart of God toward you. As you look at the painting you see not only Jesus wrapping His arms around a fallen man, you see Him wrapping His arms of mercy around you. Your eyes say, "Jesus is holding a broken sinner." Your heart says, "Jesus is holding me." When you look at the cross you will never need to question if He loves you. He came for you -- He died for you -- He lives for you. What a tremendous price has been paid -- more than all the riches in the entire world. This price was paid so that you could know the joy of being forgiven.
scene of Forgiven is Mt. Calvary. A despairing man
has a mallet in one hand and a large spike in the other .
Both symbolize that each of us is responsible for
Christ's death on the cross. Jesus Christ is holding up
this broken man; at Christ's feet are broken chains,
representing the sin that was to overcome at Calvary.
There is a trace of blood on Christ's hands, and in the
place where blood has fallen, lilies have grown.
Thomas Blackshear II
