These are the words which inspired the conception
of this powerful oil painting - 'The Cost'.
Not so much a mere painting, but a convicting
experience. "If this really happened, what
am I going to do about it?" must be every
non-Christian's reaction to a confrontation
with 'The Cost Experience Exhibition'.
An original soundtrack, especially commissioned
to accompany this invoking work, is composed
and performed by anointed Christian musicians
from around the world. Each brings their ethnic
part to establish the universality of the Gospel
Message. A strong echo of Jesus' own Jewish
roots resounds through some of the pieces, adding
yet another facet of the life of our Saviour,
leading up to His torturous sacrifice.
If this visual and audio combination were not
enough, an outline tracing of the painting,
upon which the pertinent scriptures are pasted,
is displayed alongside. Laid on a table nearby
'The Cost', a selection of grisly items bring
a third dimension - the crown of thorns, huge
rusty nails, the lethal flagrum.
'The Cost Experience Exhibition' provides a
passionate gospel experience which can be used
powerfully as an outreach tool, as well as bringing
a sobering evaluation to any Christian's faith.
A sequal to 'The Cost' is currently in preparation
- 'Awake!', an enlightened scriptural depiction
of Jesus' resurrection.
