I finished the Poinsettia in watercolor this week. I looked at all those red leaves and wondered how they could all be red and yet each stand out individually. Thank you, Anna Mason, for showing me the way to do this.
Since this is the “Christmas Plant,” I want to share my thoughts about this. Like the Poinsettia plant, Jesus was One, but with many similar, but distinct expressions. We know him as Saviour, Redeemer, King of kings and Lord of lords, Healer, Friend, and Brother. Isaiah calls him Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, and Prince of Peace. He was known as a Friend of sinners and Lover of our souls. He said about himself that he is the Way, the Truth, and the Life. Every one of these names and expressions and many, many more are a part of the whole of who Jesus is.
As we enjoy remembering Jesus’ birth into this world, let’s ask Jesus to show us another dimension of His life impacting our life and our world.
