It was whilst reading the Beatitudes and the rest of The Sermon on the mount for the first time that I came to the realisation that I was very broken and in desperate need of forgiveness. I knew in a moment that these words were true and that the Bible was true and I had been running from it my whole life. I could see that my version of morality, which was socially acceptable in this world, was in the gutter when held up to God’s perfect morality.
Receiving forgiveness was like the weight of the world being lifted from my shoulders. I felt the indescribable love of God for the first time. I’ve never been the same since. I no longer have any desire to live like I did before. Nothing this world has to offer compares to the feeling of being a child of God. The paintings in the video were created in an attempt to express the dramatic inner spiritual changes since the day I became a follower of Jesus Christ.
