Welcome back to Word Art Wednesday, everyone! It's always exciting when YOU play along and when new artists stop by to play along with us as well. We'd love to see our participation numbers grow so that we can meet more of the wonderful people out there in card-making blogland. There's always SO much great inspiration shared in our gallery. We love and appreciate when you link your art with us, and we do hope that you'll invite others to play along. The more, the merrier. Thanks so much for joining us.
The scripture for our word art is Leviticus 17:11 and it reads, "For the life of the flesh is in the blood: and I have given it to you upon the altar to make an atonement for your souls: for it is the blood that maketh an atonement for the soul". This verse is telling us that the life in our flesh (bodies) is in our blood. The blood that flows through our flesh helps maintain our bodies' ability to function. He is using it here as a parallel in telling us that "He has given it to us upon the altar to make an atonement for our souls". This refers to when His perfect, sinless body was broken on the Cross of Calvary, and when He suffered, died, paid the debt for our sins, was burried, and rose again proving HE ALONE IS GOD. In doing this, His blood makes the atonement for our lost souls. There is only ONE WAY to get to Heaven and there's only ONE GOD who proved He is real, made a way for us, and now simply waits for us to call on Him for our eternal need. The blood is the answer because He is the perfect, sinless, spotless sacrifice who, being God, was worthy and able to make the way for us.
As always, you are welcome to save the word art to your computers; but you are never required to use it in order to play along in our challenges or to win. We welcome you to share your all your art with us; remembering that Anything Goes as long as it's family-friendly and uses an encouraging or uplifting sentiment. This includes any type of altered or digital art (not just limited to cards). You may link up to five (5) projects each week, for a total of ten (10) entries per two-week challenge. The more you enter, the more you increase your odds of winning. It is our desire that God's Word will be a blessing and encouragement to you as we share it. If you have any questions about the rules, be sure to read the complete list of rules under our page tab for "Challenge Rules". Because our ultimate goal is to honor God, we have no other choice but to delete any entries that do not adhere to the guidelines. Please know that this doesn't mean we are judging anyone. We're simply attempting to honor God and follow His rules. Let us know if you have any questions, and thanks for your understanding and participation.
