Dive Deeper Into Creation Care

Title: Dive Deeper Into Creation Care
Artwork by: Emilia Ting (@lightcollector)
Description: Do you find yourself tossed back and forth on the topic of creation care?

Due to our human activities and negligence, creation is suffering. Floating plastics. Oil spills. Polluted seas.

Regardless of what we do, creation will never be fully restored by our human effort. But God can, and  He has promised that He will bring about complete restoration―a new heaven and earth (Revelation 21:1).

But this does not mean we should stop caring for creation. What we do now matters to God and the generations after us. After all, we are to be responsible stewards of the earth as God has commanded us in Genesis.

How can you and I do something to care for creation today? Share your thoughts with us! 

 

 

 

Creation Crafted For His Glory

Creation reveals God’s invisible qualities to us (Romans 1: 20). Through nature, God speaks to us, and reveals His infinite power and glory.

How has God spoken to you through His creation?

 

 

Creation Chokes With Sin

God gave man dominion over His creation. Even after the fall of man, He continues to give us this responsibility and hopes for us to continue to take care of His creation.

Do we care for our environment just as we care for the lives and souls of people?

 

 

Creation Contaminated By Man

Man’s advancements have affected creation in both small and big ways. Some of our greatest inventions have come at the expense of the environment.

How can you and I play our part to care for creation?

 

 

Creation Cries Out To Be Restored

Since the fall of mankind, creation has “been groaning as in the pains of childbirth” (Romans 8:22). But we can wait expectantly on God to come again to restore and redeem all of creation—including both you and I.

The Berth of Life

Title: The Berth of Life
Artwork by: Marcus Huang (@marc_o_____)
Description: This painting was created for a beautifully carved wooden frame in a family home. The theme was decided on by the client and its interpretation left to the artist.

Working on Noah’s Ark in a vertical format is largely unconventional, presenting several compositional challenges at first, but by God’s grace and inspiration it gradually worked out into a landscape that expresses His loving justice.

The massive cast of characters in the story each played their role in God’s plans to restore the Earth physically and spiritually. As if looking through the eyes of God, man and beast are momentarily captured basking in jubilation, each signifying their inherent meaning in the grand scheme of things.

The Ark is a hint to the coming Christ who will deliver us once and for all. Soaked in glorious sunshine, it perches serenely as a focal backdrop to the joyous flow of creatures. The second chance at life unfolds, where God’s terrible justice turns movingly to mercy with humans again placed at the helm to build a new world.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The period featured spanned from 12 May 2016 to 31 December 2017. This video is a compilation of that transformation and expresses the dominant thoughts that shaped the work towards its final outcome. I present you all The Berth of Life, paired to the song “I’ll Think About You” by We Are Messengers.

Starry Starry Night

Title: Starry Starry Night
Materials: Watercolor paintings
Artwork by: Jee Kim
Description: Painting things of nature make me think about God’s greatness and His creation. Especially when I look up to the starry night skies, I feel so small, like I’m nothing. At the same time, I’m so grateful as I am reminded that God created the whole universe for us and that’s when I realize I am special to Him.

Without God’s creation, we cannot create a single thing – our creativity is always inspired by what He has done. May my paintings cause you to reflect on our wonderful and perfect creator.

 

 

 

 

 

 


Capturing Creation

What is the point of admiring a piece of art if we don’t praise the artist? I’m always in awe when I’m surrounded by the works of His hands. Not just because they look stunning, but also because they remind me of how magnificent our Creator is and that in His greatness and splendor, He chose me to be His son.
