A Message from an artwork

A Message from an artwork


Autumn is the season for enjoying book-reading, outdoor picnicking, and mostly it is the season for enjoying arts.  The other day, I visited an art museum.  As I enjoyed watching artworks, various things came up on my mind.


Imagine there is a painting in front of you.  It does not matter what kind of painting, but let us just say there is the Mona Lisa.  Now let me ask a question.  Q: How was this piece of artwork created?  There may be two possible answers to this question.


(1)   An artist created it.

(2)   Appeared by itself. (A tree in a mountain was rained and blown, later it was tarnished, and completed itself in time)


If you ask this question to anyone, 100 out of 100 people would say “(2) is impossible.”  Even little children know that the answer is (1).  So, let me ask you another question.  You may say your answer is (1), but have you seen the artist actually creating it?  If you have not seen it being created, how would you be sure that it was created by an artist? You chose (1), because it was the only logical answer to the question.  Surely, we do not need to see an artwork being created, but there is no doubt that someone had created it.


Furthermore, how were ocean and mountains created?  Why are there four seasons, letting us enjoy beautiful colored leaves in autumn?  It is clear that we, human did not create any of these.  If that is true, then wouldn’t you think it is logical that there must be a creator, God who created them?


The Bible says “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. (Genesis 1:1, NIV).”  The Bible clearly proclaims there is God.  And God declares “I created the world, and you.”  You do not exist in this world by chance.  You are the artwork of God, and He has created you with purposes. 


God is knocking on the door of your heart.  If we seek him, God will make himself appear to you.  I wish you will find an answer in the Bible.  Through the Bible, you will find the meanings and purposes of your life.
