The Bird with treasure inside

Treasure Birds

When I started making what I originally called Scripture Birds, I had the Holy Spirit in mind.  The Old School House in Morvah, where I have sold some of these Birds, started to call the pieces Treasure Birds. I thought it was a wonderful name and captured much more of the mystery and wonder of the person of the Holy Spirit.
In Church art,  often the Holy Spirit is expressed through the shape of a Dove. Infact, in Matthew's Gospel, after Jesus was baptised by John, it says in the Bible "he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and lighting on him." 
 Who is the Holy Spirit?
When a person has a born again experience of Jesus Christ and accepts Him as Lord and saviour, The Holy Spirit brings new birth for the new believer.
 In John's Gospel, Jesus spoke to Nicodemus, a very important religious leader,  and told him, "I tell you the truth, unless a man is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God" . At the time Nicodemus was not able to grasp the amazing truth of this statement.
Such powerful and very clear words about how a person changes instantly.  I  personally think it is so wonderful to have a description of how a person can become a Christian, which was  uttered by Jesus at the start of His ministry.
The wonderful mystery is, that when a person becomes born again, the Holy Spirit lives with that person forever as a treasure within. The adventure begins, it is like a person is able to fly on the wings of the Holy Spirit.
