This is an original painting
Every painting has a story
Regeneration was painted during worship services at Dayspring Church in 2013. When I was finished, I wasn’t sure of a name for it, so I had a “Name that painting” contest and the winner chose the name based on the Titus 3:5.
Titus 3:5 "Not by works of righteousness which we have done but according to His mercy He saved us by the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Ghost".
The gold vase symbolizes the Father pouring out His Holy Spirit upon the seeker.
Acts 2:17 And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams:
The dark background represents that hidden secret place of intimacy, honesty, and prayer.
Psalm 18:11 He made darkness his secret place. Ps 91:1 He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
The crown represents the crown of righteousness that God gives to those who seek Him in spirit and in truth.
2 Timothy 4:8 Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.
The person symbolizes anyone in prayer, seeking more of God.
Deuteronomy 4:29 But if from thence thou shalt seek the LORD thy God, thou shalt find him, if thou seek him with all thy heart and with all thy soul.
