Following the Dragonslayer

Following the Dragonslayer © 2016 Debbie Turner Chavers Imagery and our response to it can be powerful in its ability to refocus our attention. For the disciples the sight of Jesus on a cross had to have been emotionally crushing. Beholding the One in whom all their hope of a better life,of healing and freedom was there before them hanging on a cross.

Yet, the imagery of a bloody, bruised Jesus must have been bewildering to His followers. Devastating, until the third day! I love that Christ Jesus did not leave that beaten, bloody image as the final one. He rose again and they were given the gift of seeing Him whole and one day every eye shall see Him.
