Portraits of Jesus Christ

Choosing to be baptized means choosing to follow Jesus Christ’s example even well beyond this special day. That’s a big commitment in today’s world where it is almost trendy to make oneself the top priority or to seek instant gratification. Jesus filled his life with acts of selfless service. He helped those who could not help Him in return and His entire focus was the wellbeing of mankind. 

His life showed us the best way to live to find lasting peace and joy. Portraits of Jesus Christ make meaningful baptism gifts for adults because they remind us that we are not alone. The path of discipleship may take courage, patience, and conviction as we seek to build our relationship with a God who loves us and has enough hope in us to give His life.

Select from these portraits of Jesus Christ masterfully created by fellow believer artists.

Images Illustrating Discipleship

The path of discipleship is rarely an easy one. Most things in life that are of true worth do not come without a price. It can become easy to lose focus on our goals or to overwhelm ourselves with unattainable expectations. 

The scriptures remind us to not look beyond the mark. These paintings remind us of simple ways we can draw closer to God and find guidance for our lives. Artwork depicting discipleship helps individuals remember the special covenants and promises they have made with God. It encourages them to keep on the path to obtaining more of the blessings that God has in store for them.

Pictures of Jesus Christ’s Healing and Hope

As the Bible expresses: “We love Him, because He first loved us” (1 John 4:19). Sincere believers of Jesus Christ choose baptism because of the healing, hope, and fulfillment they have found from His doctrine and teachings. They have caught a glimpse of their worth as God’s children and have begun to understand their potential to empower good in the world.

But baptism itself does not make us immune from hardship or confusion. The Savior Himself faced His worst temptations, rejections, and pains after He was baptized in the River Jordan. The right baptism gifts for adults can bring healing and hope long after this special day as they continue to deepen their trust in God and strengthen others.

Many of these paintings are symbolic, which is what makes them insightful baptism gifts for adults. There are layers of meaning that may only become obvious in a time of suffering or doubt.
