The Choice by Grace Ding, based on an idea by D

I’m so excited to finally share this project with you all! This is my first real (albeit short) comic project. Its been a long and difficult process (much longer than I expected it would be), but its finally done! I’ve learned a lot artistically through this project, but I’ll save those thoughts for a future post.

I do want to explain the origin of the story though. D, one of my friends, was telling me about a time in her life when she was struggling with self-hurt issues. D told me about how, in the midst of those struggles, God spoke to her by giving her the images that form the basis of this story. It helped her through that than and inspired me to make this comic.

Thanks for reading and I hope this story can be encouraging to you as it was for me. 

This is beautiful.

Scripture isn’t supposed to make you a jerk.  It doesn’t matter if “the Bible says.” If you’re a jerk about it, you don’t actually care what the Bible says.

If you give them a God made in their own image, I guarantee they’ll accept Him. But He won’t be the God who saves.

The question is not, “Do you know you are a sinner?” the question is this, “As you have heard me preach the Gospel, has God so worked in your life that the sin you…

This is why He warned people to ‘count the cost’ before becoming Christians. ‘Make no mistake,’ He says, ‘if you let me, I will make you perfect. The moment you put yourself in My hands, that is what you’re in for. Nothing less or other than that. You have free will, and if you choose, you can push Me away. But if you do not push Me away understand that I am going to see this job through. Whatever suffering it may cost you in your earthy life, whatever inconceivable purification it may cost you after death, whatever it costs Me, I will never rest, nor let you rest, until you are literally perfect—until my Father can say without reservation that He is well pleased with you, as He said He was well pleased with me. This I can do and will do. But I will not do anything less.’

When I practice my sermons, I sometimes pull up a chair right in front of me.

I picture the 15 year old kid whose parents are divorced and who wants to kill himself everyday and hates everyone at school.

I picture the single mom who lost custody of her children because she can’t hold down a job in this economy and drinks herself to sleep every night.

I picture the hard-hearted religious hypocrite who sings loudly every Sunday at his church but goes home to beat his kids.

I think of my future wife, my future children, I think of the historical figures in the Bible sitting there hearing my preaching.

I’m not about to yell in someone’s face who has real issues that need real help.

It’s great to sound passionate. But what does real passion sound like?

It sounds like a man nailed to a cross whispering forgiveness over his own murderers. It sounds like a man raised to life calling for the disciple who betrayed him so he could reinstate him back to fruitful ministry. It sounds like Jesus weeping over Jerusalem, angry at a temple for turning God’s house into a consumer’s playground, raising a young girl to life with the words, “It’s time to wake up now, honey.”

I’m fine with loud preaching, but what are we loud about?
