This painting continues to develop as the summer season comes into its fullness, and the heat and humidity of a Charleston summer envelops all. Worked on it in worship last night. I have the following verse that goes with this painting, but it is not clear at this point how they are connected.
His divine power has granted to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of him who called us to his own glory and excellence, by which he has granted to us his precious and very great promises, so that through them you may become partakers of the divine nature, having escaped from the corruption that is in the world because of sinful desire. 2 Peter 1:3-4
Precious and very great promises… that through them you may become partakers of the divine nature. Precious and very great promises. May we all come to know what they are, and become partakers of His nature in this season of life!
