I Am the Way, the Truth and the Life

Hello!! It's time for a new challenge at Word Art Wednesday. This week we're focusing on John 14:6, "Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me." Many people today want to tell us "all roads lead to Heaven" and "it doesn't matter what you believe as long as you are strong in your faith." However, Jesus tells us differently. He says that He is THE way, THE truth and THE life and that no one come to the Father except through Him. That's pretty simple to understand. Salvation is through Jesus Christ alone. So often, we try to make it so much more complicated than it really is. Maybe it's pride that tells us that we have to do something to earn it. However, in reality salvation is so simple that even a small child can understand it. Christ has given us the free gift of salvation. Have you accepted Him?

This card uses this week's MOJO Monday Sketch. I stayed pretty true to the sketch except for switching out the top most layer from a square to a rectangle. There are lots of layers and faux stitching.

There are 3 colors of sequins in two different sizes. The larger pink and green sequins were topped with a small rhinestone. The smaller white sequins were topped with some of my favorite Star Dust Stickles. The paper rose was also accented with some stickles for more sparkle. As a last touch, the pink flowers in the patterned paper were given a coat of clear Wink of Stella.
