Free, Free, Free, Really !!

Seems in 2019 the use of “Free” is making a come back. Of all the things you could use the word Free in association with is doing your Federal Taxes in the USA, with “free, free, free”. There is currently one commercial on media channels which Free, Free, Free is being touted.

In light of starting 2019, it might be of low importance though since the USA Government has been on hold to financially function until some political issues are resolved. Again as in a previous blog post, I think again of Isaiah 9:6 and the government shall be upon his shoulders. But I digress, back to free.

So what is Free, what is the origin of Free as a word? In etymology, one of the meanings of free is, “Sense of given without cost.” in some uses or languages or time of centuries past it was associated with a woman and the Love that a relationship could lead into.  The word Free itself is in other terms of etymology as an adjective, which could be stated “word used to qualify, limit, or define a noun or noun-like part of speech”, seems odd that Free would be associated with the word that means to “qualify, limit or define” another word. So Free in itself supports some other word and is not a stand-alone word, but supports more than just FREE! A “Free Gift”, for instance, would put this into perspective.

The reality on earth is, there is nothing for free. Somebody, some entity, has to pay for it. As my husband has stated, “nothing is for free, somebody somewhere had to pay for it.” This even applies to our Holy Father in heaven above. While in Romans 5:8 it states this is a free gift, it still took the life in the flesh of GOD as Jesus Christ to pay for our sins to make a way for our salvation and that was a cost which goes above and beyond anything that compares with anything we as people in any capacity are capable of giving. I don’t mean to say that a soldier or a hero who went into a situation to fight for others to have life, liberty or freedom, to sacrifice themselves for others are not giving of themselves freely, but each of their sacrifices took from those in their lives, parents, brother’s, sister’s, family, friends, futures and all for others. Even Jesus Christ himself stated there was no better sacrifice than when a friend lays down his life for another, but that death other than for the Glorification of GOD still ends up costing the others that were a part of their lives.

Free on earth does not mean without obligations or strings. If you get something for free, the value of it can be taxed so you may have to shell out some money for the free thing. You might have to participate in a survey or try something for a time before free is given. Rarely, if ever, is anything completely free created by human beings on this earth.

Salvation is freely given, there is no obligation to accept it, but the gift is beyond compare and you will not get taxed, get a bill, there will be no collection after time because you don’t have the ability to pay and there are no long qualification steps to receive it. It is given already. There was the resurrection, but there is no repossession of your salvation once received. Christ was more than enough, so we don’t need to pray to GOD that Jesus needs to be nailed back on the cross because it did not cover your sins payment!

When historians changed from B.C. to A.D., salvation was available and it is something that could not be given until Jesus Christ died on the cross for us all and was resurrected. If you want humility, think of what GOD has given; Adam walked in the cool of the day with GOD. Even he, his first creation, did not receive the gift of Salvation as we have been offered. Adam’s sins were paid for, so Adam has that even though he died in the flesh before Jesus came and did so for us all. So we who have lived the past 2000 + years have the free gift of Salvation if we will accept it. It has no borders, it can be accepted 24 hours a day, 365.25 days per year and in any language, in any time zone and it can be received alone or in a group, on the mountain top or in a hole in the ground. (“There are no Atheists in a Fox Holes”)

“The same is true with God’s gift of salvation. To us it’s free, but it cost God the life of His Son. The reason is that on the cross Jesus Christ became the final sacrifice for our sins. He paid for our salvation with His blood.”

So when you see the word FREE, know that even the Creator of all there was and is and ever will be, could not give a free gift, without a cost, but don’t let what it cost go and not be received; “But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us” Romans 5:8.

I pray each person that comes and reviews this blog and my artwork understands the gift of Salvation. No matter who, what, where, when or how you or your life has been, you can be saved.

The Gospel message is simple and very transforming to your life. Just start and let the Love of Christ Jesus through the Holy Spirit carry you to the gift of Salvation.

Auld Lang Syne

In 1788 Robert Burns sent the poem ‘Auld Lang Syne’ to the Scots Musical Museum, indicating that it was an ancient song but that he’d been the first to record it on paper. The phrase ‘auld lang syne’ roughly translates as ‘for old times’ sake’, and the song is all about preserving old friendships and looking back over the events of the year.

It is sung all over the world, evoking a sense of belonging and fellowship, tinged with nostalgia.

It has long been a much-loved Scottish tradition to sing the song just before midnight. Everyone stands in a circle holding hands, then at the beginning of the final verse (‘And there’s a hand my trusty friend’) they cross their arms across their bodies so that their left hand is holding the hand of the person on their right, and their right hand holds that of the person on their left. When the song ends, everyone rushes to the middle, still holding hands, and probably giggling.

Yes, Christmas, the honoring of the greatest gift our Savior Jesus Christ, has recently passed in time and now we sing this ‘Auld Lang Syne’ as the ball drops in Times Square, fireworks light the skies and we come and raise a toast in some way to what may come, but often we forget to give thanks for what has past to get us to January 1, 2019.

Jesus was the beginning of the end of our feeble attempt to try and earn our salvation, which we never could have done of our own strength. By a gift of GOD among us (Emanuel) who would grow up and about 33 years later would make the payment with his very life, once for all, began. As we begin this New Year, we are the flesh of GOD ‘s creation and seem to have a need to start a fresh, improve health, or add a Bible reading plan or give up something that tempts us and leads us to a sinful situation perhaps.

Whatever it is, suddenly the big push for the goals and resolutions for 2019 are in full force and every gym is cashing in on the bet that many will join, some will come, less will stay at it and for a year there will be a paying membership of which no effort will be given. Weight loss programs have the same goal. All of these have their place and do give attention for a moment what needs our attention, our health in some way.

It is not that we are lazy, but it is we want to change things which are of the world and in the flesh. What we should be doing is taking the steps to pray, to give thanks, to join hands in a circle and praise our GOD that created a 2019 for us to make a difference and thrive in Jesus name to spread the Gospel message, so the lost can find the way. We see them everywhere, even in the mirror. We need to be aware of how others might see us and to live so that others can see the Love of Christ in us and thus our relationship with GOD through the way the truth and the life that is Jesus Christ.

We are never asked in GOD ‘s word to be perfect. That will happen in the day we are walking in the cool of the day with GOD. Jesus did not go to gym, he walked, and observed that he had to redeem the time for the days were evil. He had to go about his father’s business he once announced to his own Mother, Mary. He prayed, daily and sincerely and he took the time to share, to be a friend, to weep with those that wept, to help another as he was able and as they had belief or Faith in what he told them and in who he really was, Jesus Christ the son of GOD. He was a teacher and He was challenged at every turn by unbelievers and sometimes his own group of believers, just like it is today.

Satan has perfected his craft of distraction so that we are focusing on the things that don’t matter so GOD’s purpose is not fulfilled, but his will is fulfilled and Jesus told us the gates of hell would not prevail against His church.

So in the rough translation of ‘Auld Lang Syne’, we should meditate using GOD’s word ‘for old times’ sake’, and tasks ourselves in preserving old friendships and looking back over the events of the year. The past has it’s place and when used in the manner GOD intends, we will see what we should do and what we should not do so that we will have a life in Christ and build up treasures in heaven where nothing will touch them because despite the earth, it is where our heart is found.

So when you are thinking about the GYM membership, do so if you will also take along the electronic device so you can hear a your favorite mix of worship music as you warm up. Then switch over to a message by one of the many messengers that are teaching us GOD’s word today and enrich your life by how GOD is speaking to you not through the treadmill or the free weights, but through the one muscle that needs the workout more so that any on the outside, your HEART for Christ Jesus and thus your HEART for GOD.

Oh and if you say the GYM is not where you are at for 2019, then seek the face of GOD, and take the challenge that if you seek me you will find me. Make 2019 the year you seek GOD, you share the Gospel and you walk the walk that GOD has called each of us to walk.

If you say you don’t know what you are supposed to do, then start your day asking GOD, what is on our agenda today? Then be at peace and let Him tell you, show you and place the voice of His Holy Spirit very clear in your being so you will know. GOD loves to play the treasure hunting game. If you are paying attention, you may meet an Angel, have a small child tell you a BIG wisdom you needed to know or you might find someone who is lost and help them find their way in Christ Jesus by planing a seed and letting GOD water and fertilize it so it will grow. When you read the Bible there is a list of people who by all accounts would not be who one might pick to do the work of GOD, but GOD has overwhelmingly demonstrated that he can take anyone in any situation and any condition and use them for do HIS will for His good, even wicked for the day of evil. So he can use you.

So make that 2019 resolution a target you want to hit on the first day and 364 days later, by asking GOD to show you the plan and path he created you for in His plan for Good, though we don’t see it. Remember His Ways are above our ways and His thoughts are above our Thoughts. So we don’t often see where the crooked path with lead, but we can see where he has always made it straight when we take the time to sing in ourselves the ‘auld lang syne’.

Under the Tree

Soon the Celebration of the greatest gift ever given past, present or forever will come upon us. However, many will be focused on the best deal in the the art of the  super sale, how many packages are under the tree or how many times the delivery truck has brought that box with a smile or the one that you “wish” had 3 more coming for free.

Some will decorate the door with a wreath., Some will get a fresh tree and fill the house, with the smell of pine, drape it with shiny objects and with the invention of those LED lights and all the amazing animations they can perform to dazzle our minds in the glitter.. that tree will twinkle. The familiar music we hum from old and the new are strangely familiar.

There will be visits from people Aunt Joyce or Uncle Jack or Grandma, Grandpa, Nanna, Omba. Pappy, Papa and so forth. (You know the one you use, don;t deny it!!)

We will figure out how to take that Turkey or that Ham or whatever is your tradition and make is the best meal ever, to garner the accolades from our stuffed Loved ones. family or friend to make it all worth the effort.

Then while in the past generations would tell stories around the table or the sitting room, patio or a cozy fireplace, we will succumb to this being replaced with the “lets all sit around with our electronic devices surf and text while basically not talking to those we rarely see right there before us.” moments. we will make small talk with those that give some attention, though we might struggle for their name, because we are staring at that $300 purse they got from Uncle Joey, who is missing this year!!

This is what Christmas seems to be and it is a long departure from the days where we all sat around as a family in the morning, with Grandpa or Dad or the assigned eldest child opening the family Bible and turn to Luke 2 and read the story of the reason for the season, not Happy Holidays, but MERRY CHRISTMAS ! The birth of the greatest gift.

On that day of the greatest gift arrival, the lights were a bright star, the music was the sounds of the Angels rejoicing before the Shepherds tending their flocks and the gifts were not greater than he who gave us the indescribable gift.

There are two explanations of the Christmas story I love, one is when Linus of the Peanuts cartoon recites in “A Charlie Brown Christmas“, a classic and meaningful story that helps us understand the real meaning of Christmas. I thank Charles Schultz the creator for putting the meaning of Christmas where is would go on share the meaning for generations to come. The other is a video put out by Steelehouse Media, which is cute and humorous in how a child views what Christmas means.

Charlie Brown’s Christmas tree still can be found as a gift for those that want the nostalgia feeling added to the plenteous decorations they already collected. An less and less these days there is the missing symbol of the one tree that stands above all the others as it was once decorated with the gift we received over 2000 years ago born to Mary and Joseph in the town of Bethlehem and wrapped in swaddling clothes, visited by wise men from the East and Shepherds who were out tending their sheep that night.

There is a passage that sticks out these days as I have aged, Isaiah 9:6-7. All I can say is that he has some sturdy shoulders and if he can carry that much on his shoulders then we should have no doubts he is able to also carry us on his shoulders as well.

I would ask each one that reads this Blog share it with each person you know and ask them to please read the Christmas story for yourself found in Luke 2: 1:-21, to others, to the generations that shall come and to the generations that are looking for shoulders strong enough for their lives, and all peoples, when with sin he hung on the tree for us all. Let all the world stop and look at the gift we have been given so that we would have eternal life if we will take the PRESENT and RECEIVE HIM, Jesus Christ so that the Present turns into the Gift of Love that GOD has given, as GOD is Love and He demonstrates His Love in that while we were still sinners He sent his Son…

Changing of the Guard

Of the 4 seasons around us Fall is the top of the list I find. The changes come with a subtle shift in the colors of the tree leaves as the trees start the shedding for their winter look. Even the creeping and fly creatures are so busy getting ready for the hibernation time,  getting the last week of supplies, making preparations for the rain or the cold days of freezing and snow.

Jack Rabbits are out in the scrub of the desert and they are larger than life, but running with a thicker coats and away from a hungry hawk that watches them as gifts of plenty provided before them to pick and choose.

Summer is putting tucking in the long days, packing the sun tan lotion and switching the time of  long sunsets which used to come late in the day. Fall brings the trumpet of the chilled morning, the new coat on a now red face and runny noses seeking the next tissue or lose shirt sleeve.

When Christ was hung on the cross, He was the symbol of the changing of the guard in the seasons of our lives. We would not need to sacrifice an animal to gain forgiveness for our every sin and we would learn of real salvation. We would still struggle against the sin’s that plague us, but we need not wait for an invitation to go before the King of Kings and Lord of Lords and ask for our needs in our times of trouble, ask to be included in the payment for sin, our sin. That which nailed our Savior on the Cross, by his choice, he went to the Cross for us of his own, our sin drove the nails to hold him there.

Jesus performed the changing of the guard for the seasons of our lives with His life out of Love. The veil was torn so we could go boldly to the Throne of Grace and seek Mercy and a portion of Grace in our time of needs, making it possible for all to have the same chances. We now can come directly to our Holy Father by embracing our Risen Savior who now prays in constant intercession for us at His right hand.

We were not left orphans, but given the Holy Spirit which helps us know what we ought to do, what to pray, and how to know the the will of GOD for our lives. So great is the gift of the Holy Spirit, it will pray for us in groans that are to low for us to hear, but the Holy Father knows them and He hears what is truly on our hearts.

Jesus Christ took our Sins and marked them paid. He paid the full price, no discounts, no special coupons, it was a black Friday day, but not for the bargains, for our eternity, the full price and He did it for us, because of Love, because of Love.

When we confess our sins and repent and seek forgiveness, it is not because the Blood of Christ shed on the cross is not enough. We must repent and ask forgiveness so that we can acknowledge that we have sinned and fell short of the Glory of GOD.

Jesus Christ is our high priest at the Throne room and we are invited to come in and be in prayer with him. We that do believe and accepted Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior are buried in him. So when GOD see’s us, He see’s His precious son. We don’t wear the uniform of the Guard, we don’t know the proper steps, the protocol that is a must, we are blemished and weak, but in Christ Jesus we are cleansed, perfection in work and one day we will be perfected in Glory, not a blemish, not a weak one and we will have no tears to shed, we will know what it is to have the full measure of the Love of GOD without sin.

When we look at the cross, Jesus was the Guard that changed the seasons of our lives from eternal damnation to a chance at eternal life. It is not a free pass to go out and sin and then say hey we are covered. Jesus paid for sin, not for sin to be ignored or to amount to nothing. When we look closely at the day we will all be judged, we have two things the changing of the Guard in Christ Jesus provided for us. First is GOD’s Mercy, when GOD withholds what we actually deserve and instead gives us something undeserved in it’s place.

The second is Grace is when GOD holds back from giving us Judgment at the moment we should receive it. What we don’t think about sadly is that each judgement where Grace has temporarily replaced it, is stacked up and waits for us to be judged. GOD will show us every sinful thing for which judgement must come for he is the fair and right judge, he must judge he is the giver of justice. We will see it and it will be overwhelming, even crushing. Then and only then will our Hope in Jesus Christ come to our understanding, if we have truly held full belief in who he is. We can be confident at that moment the book of the Lamb of GOD will be opened and our name will be sought and despite all we have done, we will be given the forgiveness that happened when the changing of Guard happened on Calvary’s hill.

We can’t just stare at the empty cross and ignore it, we need to look at the place where Jesus Christ performed the changing of the guard for our lives in eternity and made a way when there was no way impossible uncomplicated way before his sacrifice. He is the way, the truth and the life and no one comes to the Father except through him.

Sadly, there are so many that will not take the gift of the Gospel message and embrace Jesus Christ with all their heart. They will not have the chance when the last breath and the last heartbeat passes them on from this life to the next. They will continue to refuse, find other ways that are more comfortable, make a lifetime of excuses, but when the day for them comes, they will be forever in torment because they refused to see the changing of the Guard and embrace Jesus Christ fully as He paid for our sins fully.

I pray each person that comes and reviews this artwork understands the gift of Salvation. No matter who, what, where, when or how you or your life has been, you can be saved.

The Gospel message is simple and very transforming to your life. Just start and let the Love of Christ Jesus through the Holy Spirit carry you to the gift of Salvation.

Our Frames in the Cross

One of the interesting items in making these cross art frames is thinking about how each frame along with each cross and the final colors are as unique and very much one of a kind. We are one of a kind as well to GOD in Christ Jesus.

I never know what I will end up with when I start with each frame and pick a color set. that will blend or contrast with the frame. Sometimes when I have frames with the same size glass, I switch them around to see if they will look better in another frame or if the one I started with is the better end result.

Consider GOD the master Potter who molds us, being the clay, and how GOD has the final shape and purpose for which we were each created. He knows that as his skillful hands shape us, we are going to mar up the clay in our lives, but he knows exactly how much is needed for the final creation and puts it on the table when he starts. As we go along, he removes the parts that are damaged and continues from start to completion.

We may think we should become a fine vase, or a goblet for the kings table, possibly a fancy platter that will be used to serve in a banquet of royalty, but GOD could make us into a dish that will feed the poor and hungry. Be certain, GOD already has the end in mind, as he knew us before the foundation of the world.

When we read the words of King David in Psalms 119:16-17, he tells us that GOD forms us in our mother’s womb. In Philippians 1:6 we are told that “He who started a good work in you will continue it until the day of Christ Jesus.” It is a humble blessing to know all of our creation from GOD thinking us to be through to the day of the everlasting walk with him in the cool of the day is his design, his strong hand and we are as he created us.

The fact that GOD made us each one of kind from the onset is really a testimony to him if you meditate on it. In this way, he made the path for us to have a one to one, personal relationship with us through Jesus Christ.

So when I look at my frame art, I think about how the recipient will use it. Will it be an inspiration that reshapes their relationship with Jesus Christ, or is it a gift of great Love to be given to a broken person that needs Jesus Christ so they can be repaired. It may be purely a gift of Love where it fulfills the command of Jesus to Love one another. There are many possibilities where these frames will go and who might be changed for the Cross is where all our Salvation begins.

I pray each person that comes and reviews this artwork understands the gift of Salvation. No matter who, what, where, when or how you or your life has been, you can be saved.

The Gospel message is simple and very transforming to your life. Just start and let the Love of Christ Jesus through the Holy Spirit carry you to the gift of Salvation.

If there is a link for “Enter Drawing” and you would like to have a chance to get one of the available Art Frames, don’t wait. The drawings are on the 28th day of each month when available. We will contact the winner and get the information to ship it to you. There is no charges for this. We do not ask for any money for the Cross Illuminated Art that is given.

Thank you for taking the time to view my Art and also to read and to share with others this website.

If there are any questions please send an email to info@mycrossilluminatedart.net

If you want prayer for Salvation, please email us at prayer@mycrossilluminatedart.net

If you set the world away from your life for moment and focus on the Cross and what it means, your life will be transformed. It all starts at the Cross, where Christ Jesus, paid it all for us all. Should you not consider to bask in the Glow of Jesus Christ?

Focus on GOD through Jesus Christ, daily. If you will give GOD the focus, he will show you the reason he created you and if you commit your works to him, he will place the thoughts in your heart so you know what you should be accomplishing in your life.

God Bless and may his face shine upon you,

Artist Sharon Smith
