“Be Strong in the Lord”
  11x14 inch Limited Edition Print of 200

Ephesians 6:10-18  is well known for its description of the armor of God, and many pieces of artwork depict this with a fully armored soldier, but I wanted to emphasize the commands to stand firm, resist evil,  and to persevere. We must firmly grasp the reality of the temptations that we face and overcome them by the power of God. We must hold fast our integrity and stand strong against the Evil One. I pray that this  print will inspire you to persevere against sin, no matter how long or difficult the fight.

I have created these art prints to glorify my God and Savior Jesus Christ, magnifying him as my Redeemer who gave me new life, my Creator who empowers  me to live for him and the Lover of my soul who is my greatest joy. I pray that these prints would be a daily inspiration and encourage us all to overcome temptation and sin, to keep striving for holiness, and to be diligent and faithful to continually seek all of our joy and satisfaction in who God is for us in Jesus. In addition, I pray you will be inspired to get to the gym and take care of the body God has given you!

  “Bear One Another’s Burdens”
   
11x14 inch Limited Edition Print of 200

This drawing is based on Galatians 6:1-2, which describes that if someone has been caught in sin, the spiritual  or stronger brother must encourage him to overcome the sin. Once he has been restored to obedience to God, then the stronger brother must help him cope with the difficulty or temptation by bearing the burden of it with him. Those who are spiritually and morally strong have a responsibility to help those who are weak. , “Now we who are strong ought to bear the weaknesses of those without strength and not just please ourselves.” (Romans 15:1) I hope and pray that this print will inspire you to bear up under whatever burden you may be dealing with and that you will walk in a manner worthy of the Lord.

          “Strive For Excellence”
    11x14 inch Limited Edition Print of 200

Physically speaking, this bodybuilder is an admirable representation of the muscular human form. When he began he was your average, run-of-the mill guy, but his hard work and consistent effort has transformed him into the epitome of physical excellence. In a similar way, we ought to strive for spiritual excellence. “Rather train yourself for godliness; for while bodily training is of some value, godliness is of value in every way... to this end we toil and strive, because we have our hope set on the living God,”(1 Timothy 4:7-10) The Apostle Paul worked hard as he persevered and sacrificed to be godly. He called others to do the same, that they would make progress in becoming more like Christ. We cannot see a Christ-like character, but if we could, what would our spiritual selves look like? “Be diligent in these matters; give yourself wholly to them, so that everyone may see your progress.” (1 Timothy 4:15)

                    “The Sculptor”
          16x20 inch Lithograph Print
Printed on B100Vellum Hammermill Accent Opaque Text
.
This print is meant to inspire us to work hard to become the people that God wants us to be. Once God creates us, he begins a good work in us that he promises to complete (Philippians 1:6).  But we must also labor to progress and grow and change, and we must do it in the strength that God gives us. Becoming more godly can be a long, slow tedious process as we work together with God to chip away at our faults, but it is worth it. Eventually all of the hard work God does in us and all of the hard work we do to become more and more Like Jesus will be completed. “And let endurance have its perfect result, so that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.” (James 1:4)

The original pencil drawing for this print was rendered on textured drawing board and looks like super fine charcoal, so these prints have a unique and different look compared to  my ones. A cool feature is that his trunks are individually hand stamped on each print.

More inspiring limited edition art prints are on the way! The next print to be added will feature an action-packed, medieval style armored soldier on horseback with shield up and sword drawn to meet the enemy head-on! The theme is spiritual warfare and is illustrative of Proverbs 21:31,  “The horse is prepared for the day of battle, but victory belongs to the Lord.”
