By His stripes you were healed. 1 Peter 2:24
The Lord led me to paint the Passion Flower because it was named after his suffering in the crucifixion. It is because of what he did for us on the cross, that we can now pray in His name and expect to see people healed.
The passion flower is associated with Christ, because several parts of this flower represent different aspects of the crucifixion. For example, the spiraled tendrils in the center of the flower symbolize the lash marks Christ received while being whipped prior to the crucifixion. The central flower column is a symbol of the whip that was used to lash Christ, and the 72 radial filaments represent the crown of thorns. Also, the top three stigmas of the flower symbolize the three nails used during the crucifixion, and the lower five anthers symbolize the five wounds that resulted from the nails.
