This would be a powerful teaching aid, especially with preteen or youth age learners. Here are some points from Elgin about the illustration and some ideas for discussion starters. You can also leave a comment below to share feedback with the artist.
You may notice that this heart, has things wrong with it. It’s cracked in places, first of all, signifying the condition f our hearts wen we do not allow The Lord to heal us. We are cracked, fragmented, and broken. We know that when something s cracked just a little, it can totally shatter at any moment, especially if stress is applied. The tongue is hanging out, signifying madness and thirst. Notice the expression of the eyes and eyebrows. This person is double minded, and unstable, the eyes are rolling around unable to focus and see properly. Unless we are born again we will not SEE the kingdom of God even if it’s right there. The name of God, is holy,and royal. Purple is the color of royalty. No matter how loudly fools yell that there is no God, the reality is God still exists. The cross of Christ is right behind him, the sun(son) is shining behind the cross in the middle. All this heart needs to do is turn around(repent) and face the son and he will be healed.
