This painting represents a boy hungry for God.
The Bible says that God is light in 1John 1:5: “This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.”
Therefore the boy is reaching up to the light. God hears sincere prayers and He longs to be in relationship with us. However we must respond to Him, repent and put our faith in Him. You too can have a relationship with God if you will make this commitment to Jesus Christ. You can read more about this on the tract page with this painting as the cover on the tract called “Responding to God.”
