Artists' creations inspired by God are very personal and unique experiences. There are infinite themes in the Bible, and one's life is inexhaustible. When we convey God’s message through artistic expression, there must be his beauty, to spread the gospel with art. People can praise God’s goodness through works of art, which is the responsibility of Christian artists. I don't agree with the saying that the artist is "aimless, playful, indulges in his own ideas, and only seek to satisfy his personal sense of creation; or just cater to the commercial requirements of the art market." I think that artists are socially responsible. The social responsibility of an artist is to respond to the opportunities that society gives him to influence others. What the artist expresses also needs positive energy information to make this society better. "Christian artists need to do more than this. This is the direction of creation that is in God's mind."
God has given us these unique artistic gifts, and there must be good intentions. If He gives more, He will take more. God calls us into the community of visual artists, and we are chosen to glorify him with visual art. Christian artists need to confirm their identity and work hard to play our role in this era. Because God wants to raise up the people of artists, in this image generation, they will become the beacon and illuminate the community with different visual art media. Being able to get to know God through a picture, an image, a three-dimensional sculpture, or a device can be close to God by seeing and touching some images; this is what God is pleased with. He is convinced that art is an endless pursuit. Art works reflect the life and world view of each artist. Christian art works can reflect his spiritual life and Christian values. The Christian's artistic accomplishment and the passion shown in his works are very concerned about his relationship with God and his spiritual connection with God. Would a Christian artist be so used by Him? This is worth pondering by every Christian artist.
