Artist Statement

When a man with a conflictive past turns to God's will, it becomes an internal fight to stay whiting this new path, he must remain firm and use Gods words to find the spiritual armour needed to move on.

How it fits into contest

It fits because we see a man who has been forgiven by God for his sins and decided to change his life by following God's will but, we see that he gets rejected during his new life journey, he feels tempted to return to his old ways and also feels the gilt for his past sins; In Ephesians 6: 10-20 he finds everything he needs to stand firm using God's armor to move on, in his new path and also help others to see the right path with God's words.

From this, we must learn that no matter how difficult it seems or how many times we feel tempted, if we have the armor of God, we will be ready to fight in the spiritual battle and win; It is our dutty to show the world how to stand firm against the evil invisible forces.
