Child Of God

The Perfect Source

Title: The Perfect Source
Materials: Hand-lettering
Description: 
Sometimes we just need words of assurance. The Bible is the perfect source for that. My hope is that through these words, we will know how great and deep the Father’s love is for each of us.
Artist: Julio Mesak Nangkoda

 

Loved

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. (John 3:16)

 

Lifted

He lifted me out of the slimy pit, out of the mud and mire; he set my feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand. (Psalm 40:2)

 

Surrendered

I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. (Galatians 2:20)

 

Child Of God

See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him. (1 John 3:1)

 

Rooted

So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness.(Colossians 2:6-7)

I love what I do and I do it with commitment. Hand lettering was something I started in junior high school where I would scribble random letters on my table. Later on, I decided to take up a Bachelor’s Degree in Graphic Design. As a Christian, I want to use my creativity in hand lettering and graphic design to inspire and share with others what I’ve learned from the Bible.

More Than A Verse


Title: More Than A Verse
Materials: Illustration and Hand-drawn type
Description: This series of illustrated Bible verse were created from a desire to communicate messages that will forever share the wisdom, hope, grace, and love of our great and wonderful God. When all else fails, the truths we find in God’s Word will always remain. In God’s Word, we are reminded of God’s promises and truths — in the good and the not-so-good times of life. We can know that we are never alone!

01--Not-just-a-verse

Remind me of why I create and work || Keep my eyes on Your glory instead of pursuing my own.

02-Not just a verse

Remind me of the bigger picture || Keep my eyes on Your will as you know what’s best for me.

 

03-Not-just-a-verse

Remind me of Your grace || Keep my eyes fixed on Your blessings.

 

04-not-just-a-verse

Remind me to turn to Your Word || Write Your wisdom on my heart.

I’m Emma Skerratt from Cheltenham, England. I grew up in Bath and went to university in Cornwall, where I fell in love with coast. I was blessed to grow up with Christian parents so my faith journey isn’t defined by a particular moment but more a growing relationship.

The thing I love about hand lettering is how much personality and character each project can have. Each artist has their own individual style and I found that by lettering Bible verses that I could visually represent what I want to stick in my head.

I like to think that my lettering is a form of worship and a response to all God has done for me. When I read a piece of Scripture that really affects me, all I want to do is reflect on the truths in it and create a unique piece of art that praises the Lord. I hope that my lettering will help and encourage other visual learners to engage with Scripture in a similar way.

Drawing assurance from God 1

Drawing assurance from God

Title: Drawing assurance from God
Materials: Vector Illustration
Description: God wants us to draw near to Him with “the full assurance of faith” (Hebrews 10:22). Isn’t it comforting to know that we can experience deep peace and consolation because of Jesus’ saving work on the cross for us? Let’s trust in the power of Jesus’ work regardless of our circumstances – whether we have been brought very low and helped, sorely wounded and healed, cast down and raised again, have given up all hope, and been suddenly snatched from danger, and placed in safety.

My name is Megan Lotter, I’m from Cape Town, South Africa. I am a graphic designer and love art. I was brought up in a Christian home so I always knew about God, and gave my life to Him at an early age, but I never really had an intimate relationship with Him, or knew what that really looked like.  About seven years ago He opened a door for me to serve in a non-denominational ministry, and I said yes. I was blown away – and still am, by His unconditional love and grace every day. Living for God isn’t always easy, but my sacrifice is but a drop in a bucket because of His love and Jesus did on the cross.

The Lord has blessed me with this beautiful talent of creativity , and I want to use it for His Glory. I believe that my creations are like a sweet fragrance onto the Lord. My source of inspiration is His word – there is so much power in the word of God, it cuts like a two-edged sword. I believe the Lord is calling us to take back the ground the enemy has stolen for His Kingdom in the arts.

The World vs The Word

Title: The World vs The Word
Materials: Illustration
Description: “See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the elemental spiritual forces of this world rather than on Christ.

For in Christ all the fullness of the Deity lives in bodily form, and in Christ you have been brought to fullness. He is the head over every power and authority.” (Colossians 2:8-10)

It’s easy to live following the standards and perceptions of the world when they are all around us. The things we see, hear, touch, and know from society changes the way we live our lives ever so subtly. What are you taking in today?  The Bible provides a great alternative perspective to life! It has all the answers to help us live our lives fully.

Are we able to discern between what the world says and what the Bible says? Are we consciously and actively seeking the truths from the Bible?

Let’s stand firm in what God says!
