Loading Passage Reference...

While centered on Psalm 40:9, my work also responds to the great salvation that was spoken to us by the Lord (Hebrews 2:3). It is this gospel which is spoken to all nations, His body, His bride, the great congregation, His community of believers in the Lord Jesus Christ.


The colors used are those that are contained within the passage, referring to Christ, of course, His sacrifice for His Bride, His church, and His community of believers.What is it that is spoken:God's righteousness (blue), faithfulness (red/orange), loving kindness (golden yellows) and truth (bright light white).


In this collage, these colors proceed forth from Truth (at the top of the collage) to the community of God's chosen people, even those yet to be come a part of the community (implied by the stars in the darkest parts of the collage). How brightly all these divine attributions shine, giving God the praise for each of them.
