The beauty of the Father’s heart, His passionate desire to bring into being the next phase of humanity’s potential in the One New Man for becoming ONE with Him is the motif for this painting.
I have tried to portray a sense of the intimacy and detailed loving care that God our Father is taking to finally bring the two separated parts of His family together. Jew and Gentile One in His Love.
In this painting I have focused on the physical reality of the grafting process, by showing the two separate branches, one the cultivated olive tree, the other the wild olive tree being tied closely together by golden cords of the Father’s Love.
It seems clear that the process is both difficult and painful and can only be fully accomplished by a willingness to soften and yield to the tightness of sustained pressure of alignment and agreement with one another and our Father. Is this not a circumcision of the heart?
