ART & POETRY BY PAUL & KATHY BOECHER
It was part of a bigger plan than anyone could imagine,
It had to come from God alone, for pure hearts to be examined,
He sent His Son to pay the price, that no other life could provide,
A perfect, pure and holy life, whom with God alone did reside.
He came as a lowly baby, to be born of true God and man,
He lived a life of poverty, but was there when the world began,
What greater price could He lay down, than the treasure of His own life,
The greatest gift we’ll ever know, is the release from sin’s great strife.
He was there when the world made, He remains with us every day,
He sits upon His throne above, where we’ll meet Him and He will say,
“Well done, good and faithful servant, come enter my kingdom and live,”
“Salvation is yours without cost, eternity I freely give.”
This painting depicts the chaos of the world at the beginning, before God put everything in place. His plan included an apple, temptation and eventual forgiveness and eternal life. Those things and other parts of God’s plan our indicated in the painting. See how many you can find. The nativity has been singled out in the first picture.
