The Heart of God
Mary Magdalene represents the brokenness, separation and shame in each of us.
God sent His Son to look you and me in the eye, while lovingly cupping our sobbing faces to remind us of our connection and nobility that was lost in Eden
“Neither do I condemn you. Go and sin no more.”
Perhaps for the first time in her life Mary experienced to her core what it’s like to be complete. Her past seemed so far removed, her future filled with promise. By receiving the unconditional love that infused Jesus’ declaration, her heart aligned with His. She was released from her bondage and was born anew.
The completed clay study took my breath away. “Their faces are so close. This looks very intimate,” I thought.
After some soul-searching, the questions came to me: “Isn’t this what He truly desires, a deeply intimate connection with me? Is my discomfort telling me something about my distance from Him? Am I honest about desiring to receive His love?”
