Faces

People always ask me, why don’t your people have faces?

  1. That is how I see the world.
    When society values acceptance from the world more than the  discovery of who God made you to be, it truly is a faceless nation.

    A person's false persona is ripped away to reveal the true self.

  2. So you can put yourself in the art.
    Artists often have a trait  known as Intra-personal intelligence. Which is a fancy way of saying, self-aware. Artists can help people to understand themselves through their creations. If the viewer is open to the experience.

    The face of Jesus is revealed.

    “As members of the body of Christ, we are often the only Jesus people will ever see. Be sure to represent him accurately.”


  3.  Our true identity is found by seeking God our creator, and Christ our re-creator. (Isaiah 64:8, Luke 9:23-27)

  4. Scripture tells us to seek the face of God, which is a poetic way of saying know who he really is. (1 Chron. 16:11, Psalm 24:6, Hosea 5:15) Yet many do not approach God that way, they see holiness as simply a matter of doing as God commands. Little do they realize that these two concepts are one in the same. This is true for the simple fact that the standard for holiness is modeled after the very nature of God. (1 Peter 1:13-15, 2 Peter 1:3-4) If we do not apply righteousness this way God is truly faceless to us, and we are setting ourselves up for failure.
