Tattooed Amish

I found this image online. I don’t know who this man is, I could only find that he is a convert to the Amish faith and hence, unlike probably any other Amish person you’ll ever meet, he has a tattoo. I have a love hate relationship with tattoos, while they can be beautiful when well done, they can look horrendous when poorly done but my favorite tattoo I think is the one washed away by baptism. You can still see it, the mark of his life before Jesus, but it’s not really there. That tattoo and the man who got it one day, long ago, no longer stand before you. Instead stands a new creation, made in the image of Jesus Christ.

.

There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. For the law of the Spirit of life has set you free in Christ Jesus from the law of sin and death. For God has done what the law, weakened by the flesh, could not do. By sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh and for sin, he condemned sin in the flesh, in order that the righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not according to the flesh but according to the Spirit. For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit set their minds on the things of the Spirit. …” Romans 8: 1-39
