Bible Pictures

Posted on May 25, 2012 at 10:06am 0 Comments

A picture is worth a thousand pixels. Everyone loves images. In email, images spice up the sender's message. On websites, graphics give splashes of color. And from our phones, we capture photos and enjoy sharing them with our friends. Pics are cool.

Using images to communicate important messages is commonplace. So it's no wonder we see images in Scripture. The Bible is full of pics.

The Bible and Our Luggage

Grace is amazing. Always has been. Always will.

So what is grace? And if it could be heard, what would it sound like? What is this melody we call grace?

No other voice better represents grace than Jesus's. While hanging on a cross, Jesus responded to one thief's request. The thief humbly asked Jesus to remember him in His Kingdom.

Instead of critiquing this criminal, Jesus sang grace into this man's soul. Let's hear what He told this thief.
