The painting show a dangerous. life threatening situation. It happens every day in the animal kingdom. There will be danger for us human beings when we follow Jesus as well. He doesn’t promise a life of perfection, wealth beyond compare, all the creature comforts we long for, but He does tell us we will inherit the eternal kingdom of heaven if we follow Him.
Are you ready to take up your cross, will you leave all to follow me,
Will you travel down untrodden roads, will you walk with me to the sea,
Can you lay your head under the stars, can you live with limited wealth,
Can you give up your past life of sin, will you trust me for life and health?
All I ask is to give me your heart, I will cleanse it with my own blood,
Your sins I’ll forgive and take you home, to heavenly treasures above.
Trust in my unconditional love, there’s nothing that you need to fear,
I’ll walk with you each step of the way, my presence will always be near.
