August 30 I was coming home from helping Compassion International at the Hillsong concert when I was listening to Air 1. The DJ on that night (11pm or so) was talking about being set free by Jesus, yet wanting to go back to the chains that held him. While looking up the Bible verse I used for Come Alive I came across a perfect verse that would work with the song “Free” if I ever came up with a painting. Well, I did on that hour drive home. My initial sketch had a very freaky looking Jesus. Needless to say I worked on correcting that as being set free should not look scarier than being trapped by whatever is keeping us from God.
