About the verse

This is the famous Bible definition of faith.  While a child in Sunday School, I memorized it, along with John 3:16.  So have many others.  Faith is here beautifully defined.  It has to do not with what we can see and touch, but in what we believe.  We believe, then we see!  But if we wish to see in order to believe we will never see.  For the Christian, seeing is not believing.  Such was the mistake of Thomas who insisted on seeing the resurrected Jesus before he would believe in Him.  For the Christian, believing is seeing.

About the art

This piece is a little symbolic.  An ocean is glimpsed through the initial letter ďNĒ and also to its left along the border.  The ocean, like Godís reality and power are big and real, but we only see enough to give us a clue.  There is a big ocean behind the front of this piece.  Faith gives us the ability to glimpse Godís great ocean.  Notice the snail in the upper right corner.  Many of my most recent pieces have snails.
