Here are the photo’s and video of the worship paint I did with my lovely and talented paint buddy, Amanda!

All three are 24 x 36 canvas with acrylic and spray paint glitter. The first two were painted before hand and used as set up for the third. They were done for a sermon titled “Loving and Just” in a sermon series titled “God Is…”

This first one is “God is Loving.” We went with an anatomically correct heart because God’s love is not a lace doily. It’s not something dragged out on special occasions or “High Holidays” (Christmas, Easter…) and set on the china cabinet to be admired. God’s love is gritty, it’s sweaty, it’s oozy, hard-working, literal, and sacrificial. It’s these things in culmination that make it beautiful; that make it constant. It doesn’t matter who you are, what you’ve done, or how much time you’ve spent ignoring God, his love is still there, waiting.

This second piece is “God is Just.” It highlights the problem we run into when we try to be good enough, try to work hard enough to feel justified on our own merit. Nothing can compare to God’s Holiness. It doesn’t matter if you’re a good person, there will always be someone better and everyone will fail to hold their weight in light of eternity.

Here is the video of the live paint which we did at all three of our church services.

God’s love makes up for our every short coming. His sacrifice on the cross brings us into his arms when we acknowledge our sins, repent of them, and accept that Jesus Christ, the living son of God, died for our sins, and that act alone is capable enough to save us.

We did this painting to a poem written by Amanda’s husband, Eric which I’ll post later this week (It’s a long poem and deserves its own post!)
