Decorating With Christian Art
Walking through our home is like walking
through the scriptures! My wife was the first
one to buy a piece of Christian artwork and
we have collected it ever since that first
purchase. She saw a beautiful portrait by
William Hallmark entitled The Keys to Death
and Hell and it is now hanging in the family
room of our home. Christian artwork
is one way of sharing with people the love we
have for our Savior.
Our eldest son is an ordained youth minister
that has grown up with an impressive framed
picture of Christ calling the disciples to be
fishers of men hanging on his bedroom wall.
He told me one time that he used to try to
picture himself in that setting, and it was an
inspiration to prepare himself to the
challenges of working with the youth. We
actually bought him a wallet size copy of
that same picture so that he could carry it
with him while he was gone. It was to remind
him that he was truly a fisher of men, just like
the men called by Christ as His first disciples.
Homage by Danny Hahlbohm is a piece of
artwork that is a Christmas time favorite. It is
a picture of Santa Claus kneeling down at a
nativity scene and looking at the Baby Jesus.
It is a reminder to everybody that while we
live in the world we all need to worship the
Savior of the Earth.Stumble it!
