I feel a sense of connection to great artists when I view their work.
I feel an even deeper sense of connection to The Artist when I view His work.
Creation does not limit or “contain” God. But it does reveal his character “in the same sense that the arrangement of furniture in your apartment is a manifestation of your will.” (Dallas Willard). Nature reveals God’s aesthetic, his beauty. And when I look upon creation, I hear him whispering, “You too were made by me. If you remain true, you–more than all of these–will reveal Me.”
“The heavens declare the glory of God.” ~Psalm 19:1
“This same God is at work in us.” ~1 Corinthians 12:6
