After I started doing shapes with my scribbleprints (in stead of just abstract pieces), a friend suggested I do a cross. It had been something I had considered doing before so I set down pen to paper and after several attempts came up with a cross shaped "scribble" that I liked, and began to fill it in (as I usually do with my scribbleprints).
It wasn't until later, when it was scanned and I was editing it on the computer, that I decided to add the nail-prints. It was easy enough--just select a circle and click the mouse...but what I didn't expect was how it would affect me. Just a click, and there was blood. So like the reality of the cross: just a careless word, a simple decision, easy as a mouse-click, and those little easy sins bring such harm into our world. And for that, to bring us forgiveness, Jesus suffered and bled.
And it came to me once again that I placed those nail-prints there...not just on my scribbled cross but on the real cross where he bled and died.
But he was pierced for our transgressions,
he was crushed for our iniquities;
the punishment that brought us peace was upon him,
and by his wounds we are healed.
Isaiah 53:5 (NIV)
