All roads lead to recovery

Here is just one of collage from artist Ergo Phizmiz. He recently had an exhibition at my local art centre in Ryde. His work is very avant garde and uses a lot of religious and Christian imagery in his collages.

This one really stood out for me, thinking about life after death, heaven and final judgement. He questions, Do all road lead to recovery?

If you look carefully you will see stairways and doors contrasted against Mary and Jesus and the people at the temple.

Personally, It reminds me that I long for the day when there will be the new heavens and the new earth. No more crying, no more pain, all things will be restored. Above all were be with our bridgegroom forever:
Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea. I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Now the dwelling of God is with men, and he will live with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away. (NIV, Revelation 21:1-4)
