His WORD wounds our desire to sin. It then causes us to break free from the darkness that once surrounded
us. The key is who we are in Christ, and it took His kind of light to make us realize this indestructible truth.
We shine like the moon in the darkest hour because we reflect the Son, the Son of God. That is why we can
stand, stand still, stand in awe of the One who knew us before we’re in the light. The darkness once chained
us and caused the blindness of our eyes and our vision, blurring us from the reality of destiny and how much
God desires us to be FREE and recognize that He is our Father. God, the one that we can’t see but loves us so
much, is our Father, and there is NOTHING we can do to SEPARATE us from the LOVE of GOD.
GOD IS ART.
(The evolution of art)
- Sam Asirifi Jr
The true work of art is but a shadow of the divine perfection.
Luke 6: 14 A good man brings good things out of the good stored up in his heart,
Art. Defined as the expression or application of human creative skill and imagina-
tion. The thought, the feeling, the sight, and the hearing of art are a beautiful gift that we
humans possess. Art in many forms has dramatically changed over the course of time.
Some criticize that modern day art, whether visually, or through literature, music, and
even drama, is polluted, perverted, and plagued with no substance at all, while others
say that modern art compared to traditional art has evolved into better more complex
art where one’s freedom of expression is being put to more use. But how can one survive
without the other? The famous Aristotle, a Greek philosopher and scientist, said it best,
“The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward
significance”. Art is changing rapidly; one can say that today’s art is becoming more
and more self-glorifying than it is glorifying God. So how does a follower of Christ differ
between what is “good” art and what is “bad” art? Simple; your heart determines what
you see. Art is what one receives, from one’s perception.
and an evil man brings evil things out of the evil stored up in his heart.
Imagine, if Beethoven were to listen to a Jay-z album, what would his thoughts be?
Or if the famous artist Leonardo da Vinci, who simply used paint and brushes to create his art, were to see the work of modern day artist Young-Deok Seo who uses bicycle
chains to create human sculptures, how would he react to such different type of art. From
Author Harper Lee famous for the book “To Kill a Mockingbird”, to the creator of “ 50
Shades of Grey”, E. L. James, art even though its essence hasn’t changed, yet it has many
different ways of expression. And that’s what makes art, art. The fact that two people
can look at one creation and receive two different feelings and thoughts, is what makes
art a beautiful thing. Even though today’s art has tremendously changed compared to
traditional, and the created has forgotten their creator, any type of art, no matter how
it is expressed is a gift from God, and such talent is to be celebrated by glorifying God,
because God is art.
