Don’t ever waist a good lesson….
Last Sabbath the SS lesson study was about my favorite subject ART. So not to waste my notes or thoughts and not to forget the beauty of it all it’s going in my blog.
God as Artist
Artistic creation is God’s nature. Creating the world and heavens was an act of absolute creative intelligent design:
- timed to perfection
Every color, shape and form was thought through with the finesse of an artist or sculptor. Landscapes, oceans, lakes, rivers, streams, waterfalls, different climates, ground covers, soils, and huge amount of plants and the way it all comes together…can you even begin to imagine how big a project that was? A huge landscape project, that is completely self sustained!
Unity. Clay is workable when wet, more fixed when dry, it won’t stick together without water (the soft binding agent). The potter works for hours to form one perfect piece. We are the clay He is the potter and we need to let God work in our hearts.
It’s about details, being a designer. God’s delight in beauty. He could have made black and white or one tree. Birds didn’t have to sing and butterflies didn’t have to be pretty to do their job. But everything in nature was designed and planned. Extensive attention to detail was given to every little thing in the sanctuary. The artistry and skill He used within His children was astounding.
Focus on Him. Poetry. Inspired!
A wise friend once told me, if you want to read a good love story – pick up your bible. If you like mysteries – pick up your bible. If a murder story is your thing – pick up your bible. It can never be pondered too much, the more you read it the more precious it becomes and the better it tastes.
Life changing, filling, chiseling, shaping and polishing the work of a sculptor. It’s about repentance, cleansing and seeking a clean heart.
“Yet you, LORD, are our Father. We are the clay, you are the potter; we are all the work of your hand”. Isaiah 64:8
“God is love” is written upon every opening bud, upon every spire of springing grass. The lovely birds making the air vocal with their happy songs, the delicately tinted flowers in their perfection perfuming the air, the lofty trees of the forest with their rich foliage of living green — all testify to the tender, fatherly care of our God and to His desire to make His children happy. SC pg 10
How beautiful is that? I love it.
