  Notes: Host's comment: "“Whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said, streams of living water will flow from within him.” John 7:38. When any man gives his life to Christ, something incredible happens – his sins are forgiven and he is cleansed. The Cleansing Stream captures a moment in time when a seeker turns his life over to Christ. As he kneels in reverence to ask Christ to come into his heart, the Bible promises a cleansing stream to wash away past sins and make a new creation in Christ. Ron DiCianni strikingly adds symbolism by showing the initial outpouring in red demonstrating that it is the blood of Jesus that allows all men to come directly to the Father. What a beautiful reminder to all believers of the moment their lives were changed forever." Artist's note: "In the painting, I used the metaphor of a waterfall emanating from the cross in the stained glass window as the cleansing stream Jesus spoke of in John 7:38. This happens as a result of the man repenting and asking Christ to come into his heart and take up the proper status of Savior and Lord of his life. There is no other way to obtain salvation – not through heredity nor through association. It can only be gained by a personal experience at the “altar”."
