BLOG | The Construction of Art

 
Art...What is it? How is it interperted? How does it affect and what are its effects? I have know idea, but looking at this piece by Wim Delvoye displayed at the Miami Art Basel brought a few things to mind. At first glance, this laser cut steel piece looks like a construction vehicle used to build or tear down structures. But look again. You will see more intricately behind the face of the bull doser a castle or palace-like structure. God, for one, is so awesome the way He looks at what lies beneath. Especially when looking at us. We are his creation so, in a sense, we are His art piece. People came from all over world to Miami Art Basel to view and interpret what they see when they look at the creator's (the artist) work. So I was wondering: what am I communicating as my life is displayed in day to day living. What are my Creator's intentions for me? This, I believe, is a thought gripping most human beings of all walks of life. I like the way it says it in John 4:23-24 (The Mesage translation): 
 
 "But the time is coming—it has, in fact, come—when what you're called will not matter and where you go to worship will not matter. it's who you are and the way you live that count before God. Your worship must engage your spirit in the pursuit of truth. That's the kind of people the Father is out looking for: those who are simply and honestly themselves before him in their worship. God is sheer being itself—Spirit. Those who worship him must do it out of their very being, their spirits, their true selves, in adoration."
  
So, if those are the type of people God is looking for, then it seems those are the intentions God had for us upon constructing the "mona lisa-esque" (shout out to Elhae) creations that we are. I really like how the uniqueness of the indivudual counts as well, as it says "simply and honestly themselves before Him in their worship". (Italics added.) He likes me just like I like my sneaks - limited and authentic. My worship must transcend the altar and spill into all aspects of my life. As I've said to the youth that I serve weekly, [shout out to Powerhouse] " If you're not worshipping God, then you're not being yourself". 
God created us for worship.
