Are we Bad or Good Art?

When an painter, a sculptor, or even a dance performer presents their "work" to people, 
they are called artists. Artists present their work to people,
 hoping to reveal the "good" image that they can create with their talent.

Let me give you an example...

The Sistine Chapel ceiling was painted by Michelangelo between 1508 and 1512. It looked beautiful! It was amazing!
Vatican Museums
It's beautiful, but can you imagine if Michelangelo painted something like this on the ceiling? 

It would present a bad image of Michelangelo with such a horrible painting. Because of the amazing "image" of his painting on the ceiling, we can see how spectacular Michelangelo is as a painter and as an artist. No one views him as being a bad painter, only a really really REALLY good one.

Now, here is a mind blowing realization I had last week.

God, the creator of the Heavens and the Earth, created every single living thing

Genesis 1:31 says: "God saw all that He had made, and it was very good..."

He created everything guys. That means He created US.

So wait, if God created us, then that means we are His art

Are we portraying a good image for our Creator? Our Artist? 

 If we don't have that image of living for Christ, then are we showing others around a good image of God, let alone Christianity?

If we bully, lie, cheat, sing crude songs, covet, premarital sex, or anything not pleasing to Him...then we aren't portraying a good image of our Artist, therefore, we are Bad Art.

But Wait! There's hope! There is this magical thing called Wite'out! 

Wite'Out has the ability to cover up and remove all mistakes done by a pen, pencil, marker, paint brush, etc.

Jesus is our Wite'out. He covered us not by some white paste-like material, He covered us by His blood. 

He gave us a chance to start displaying a new painting, a new image of ourselves for God.

Have an amazing week everyone!
