00741 - Faith In Art And Culture

Artists like Michelangelo and Leonardo da Vinci used their exceptional talents to create works that inspire awe and devotion, blending themes of Faith in God with incredible artistic skill.

One of the most striking examples of Michelangelo is the Sistine Chapel ceiling, where the stories of Genesis unfold in a series of breathtaking frescoes. These works not only reflect the artist's genius but also the central themes of the Christian faith. They remind us of the creation, the fall of man, and the promise of redemption through Christ Jesus.

Romans 1:20, states, "For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse." This underscores the idea that God's presence and power are evident in the world around us, a concept that continues to inspire artists today.


The ability we have for artistry was created by God.


Lord, thank You for the ability and creativity within the lives of artists today. Amen.
