Jesus is not a religion

This inner conversion didn’t happen because someone told me to, although there have been Christians who tried to convince me in the past, their words never touched or convicted my heart. It is never our duty to convince anyone’s heart. Only God can speak and stir up someone’s heart in the right way. His way.

He designed His ways perfectly and He has a perfect design for every heart.
He knows exactly how to stir our heart and use all the chapters of our life story for His glory.

Following Jesus is not a religion, it is dying to our old self and being reborn in the Way, the Truth and the Life. It is coming Home to our Father, finally, after doing it all on (y)our own strength, after searching all different pathways (that are actually dead-ends) in the world and in the spiritual jungle.

Art is my way of expressing what my heart is full of, it is deeply inspired by the beauty & splendor of His glory and kingdom.
