Dixon: redemptive art

Sunday, April 15, 2018
    Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving.
    —Colossians 3:23-24 (NIV)
    Man cannot make a redemptive art, but he can make an art that communicates what he experiences of redemption as a man and what he knows of it as an artist. God in his infinite wisdom may use an art work as an instrument of redemption, but what serves or can serve that purpose is beyond the knowledge of man.
    ... John W. Dixon, Jr., in Christian Faith and the Contemporary Arts, ed. Finley Eversole, New York: Abingdon Press, 1962, p. 6 (see the book)
    See also Col. 3:23-24; Ex. 35:30-35; Matt. 16:16-17; Gal. 1:11-12; 1 Pet. 1:18-19
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, redeem the works of my hands to Your glory.
