What does it look like to be an artist in the Kingdom of God?

That's a great question! I have been asking myself for quite some time now. To be honest, I’m just starting to discover the possibilities. Surprisingly, God has decided to bless me with spiritual “gifts” on top of my life’s “talents”. I’m surprised to discover that these new gifts are actually competing with my passion for art and design!

In the past, I’ve struggled with apathy, existentialism, self-righteousness, institutional religion, lack of spiritual leadership, lack of community, and addiction to sin. In 2010, God revealed himself to me through his Word like never before. I was challenged with the thought that I was a believer in a book I hadn’t even read: the Bible. Struggling in scepticism and doubts, I started that year reading this book cover to cover alone on a dock during my lunch break. Authors like Francis Chan, Shane Claiborne, and David Platt introduced me to Jesus’ call to “Follow Me” and be His disciple.

Needless to say, I’ve accepted this call to be Jesus’ apprentice and He has filled me with purpose, spiritual fruit, and love that lasts. Through patience and prayer, my wife joined me in this pursuit to lose our lives for his sake (Mat 10:39). We now thrive in true community at a local congregation and take advanced biblical training classes. It's now our passion to lead a small group of young adult ‘disciples making disciples’. Through some inner-church difficulties and trials, I have developed a new passion for ecclesiology and church history. Only God knows my future path and how I will get to incorporate these gifts and talents for His purposes.

I rest in the fact that there is nothing I can do to please or displease God any further. He looks at me through the faithfulness and perfection of his son, Jesus. This is the gospel (“good news”, Rom 5:8) and it is indeed good!

"Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. I say to myself, “The Lord is my portion; therefore I will wait for him.” The Lord is good to those whose hope is in him, to the one who seeks him;"
-Lamentations 3:22-25 NIV
