Day 24: Baptized With The Holy Spirit And Fire

Baptize_Water_Fire

I am really excited to share this painting.  This is an example of a what two people moving in unity with the Holy Spirit can do together on one canvas.  Team painting is not easy.  It takes trust, because the person standing next to you is given free reign over the canvas, as are you.  At any time, whatever you have created could be painted over by your partner.  So trust is huge, knowing that God is moving through your partner and that what is created will be a beautiful offering to the Lord.  I have a very close friend who attends church with me and she is quite the artist.  I love when we paint together.  She brings a perspective and artistic ability that I don’t have.

This painting speaks to me of baptism by the Holy Spirit and with Fire.

*This painting was done with a partner and was painted with a brush.
