Brent painted “Come, Follow Me” at the request of a fan from his past. They reached out to ask if he had any pictures of Christ to hand out to others. At the time Brent didn’t have one, but knew he needed one. This is the result of such a simple request.
Within the strokes of this painting, Christ takes a brief pause along His journey to look back at us, His hand outstretched with the invitation “Come, Follow Me”. Notice that He is leaving the dark and dreary wilderness and entering a meadow full of light. The lives of each one of us can be full of light if we choose to follow Him.
