"The Covenant Promise" figurative oil painting, Baptism

"The Covenant Promise"
God’s promises are not like our promises. God’s promises are as steadfast and enduring as the One who spoke them. The One who spoke the stars into the night sky and holds them aloft by His great power, promises to tenderly hold each one of us in His loving arms.
This painting represents God’s promises on many levels. He will never leave us nor forsake us and He will provide a place for us in His heavenly kingdom. Here on earth He will be our perfect peace in times of trouble. As we abide in Him, He abides in us. He offers hope, a purpose and a plan for our future. On a personal level, Jesus is not only my King and Savior, but also my Friend and Brother. As I abide in Him, there will be trials and persecutions, but He has promised to bring life and that life more abundantly.
Through many confirmations of His great love for us , God brought my wife Ann and me together. This painting shows the baptism of our grandson Chase. Chase is the son of Ann’s daughter, Leanne, and son-in-law Matt.

The honoring of a new life with baptism is always time for reflection. The look on the father's face as he holds his child echoes your words. Nicely done.
