"Love of the Father"
Ref 32/10

... it is my desire to lavish my love on you..., simply because you are my child and I am your Father.... 1 John 3:1

The painting’s colours are bright  -  showing the love between the Father and all His children.  His strength bears us up  -  He loved us first and has shown His love for us before we were even formed.   Even when we were still in sin, His son died for us (the red clothes of the child signify that we are all born in sin but are redeemed by the blood of Christ. We are redeemed and forgiven (Rev 1:5-6). It also symbolizes the passion that we should feel towards the Father. The blue shirt of the Father depicts the Holy Spirit who is on earth now drawing us to the Father.The Father’s only desire is for us to stretch out our hands and touch His face.   As a small child trusts the strength of the One holding him/her, who is not afraid to answer to the love that calls out, but looks straight into His eyes and accepts His embrace so we must believe, as a small child.
