In the process of working on this, one day, God said to me, “1 Peter 4:11,” and in the NLT, it says, “Do you have the gift of speaking? Then speak as though God himself were speaking through you. Do you have the gift of helping others? Do it with all the strength and energy that God supplies. Then everything you do will bring glory to God through Jesus Christ. All glory and power to him forever and ever! Amen” That’s the mission. That’s the goal. The entire purpose is to know Christ and to make him known, and I’m willing to do it by all means possible – poetry inclusive. .
In a book titled, The Christian Imagination, edited by Leland Ryken, p. 45 says, “Christian art is by no means always religious art, that is art which deals with religious themes. Consider God the Creator. Is God’s creation totally involved with religious subjects? What about the universe? the birds? the trees? the mountains? What about the birds song? and the sound of the wind in the trees? When God created out of nothing by his spoken word, he did not just create “religious” objects. And in the Bible, as we have seen, God commanded the artist, working within God’s creation, to fashion statues of oxen and lions and carvings of almond blossoms for the tabernacle and the temple… It is worth man’s while to create works upon the basis of the great works God has already created.”
This is a bi-weekly podcast – every Wednesday. Storytelling is the style. In most cases, the “upward mobility” narrative will be the theme i.e. perceiving life from the ground up, because most times, isn’t that how God works? He creates something out of nothing. Then, sometimes, he takes something & makes it nothing, if it replaces devotion to Him. Yes, he’s called the I AM THAT I AM, so he does as he pleases, and we can’t question him. .
This podcast puts you & Him as the subject, and in the end, every episode screams the same message: when we speak God with our lips, let our lives speak the same – our thoughts, our words, our actions, our “defense mechanisms,” our intentions, you get it, our everything.
