Combining photography and graphic design is really fun because of the vivid images that can be created to express a simple yet in-depth truth. In The Light Of Life I took a picture of a light bulb and then transformed the filament into a cross. The artwork can be summed up in one phrase: Jesus is the light of life.
After completing The Light Of Life, I noticed inside the bulb what appears to be stars or galaxies in space. The dust particles from my photograph gave it that cool effect. Jesus is the bright Morning Star and also the creator of all the stars (Revelation 22:16; Genesis 1:14-19). He is the Light of the world and the Light of the universe. How amazing our Creator is all of those things and created all of those things. Nothing is impossible with our God!
In John 1:3-5, it says, “Through him (Jesus) all things were made…In him was life, and that life was the light of men.”
First of all, Jesus created all things (including the stars). The creation story is found in Genesis 1.
Secondly, there is life in Jesus. “God has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son” (1 John 5:11).
Lastly, Jesus (the Life) is the light of men. Jesus said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”
There is no brighter light than Jesus! He shines in the darkness and He is “the true light that gives light to everyone” (John 1:9).
May we trust in Jesus and look to Him who shines bright for the world to see!
