Main Focus: An Artist’s Perspective

Naomi's Art -- DIG Bible Study

The other day my 8-year-old daughter, Naomi, drew a picture for me.

It was also a picture of me.

However, as I looked closer, it was apparent I wasn’t the main focus. And rightly so.

I am preaching from the Bible at church. A larger Holy Bible is in the foreground with Jesus’ name on it and the label “Main focuse” at the top.

She had gotten it right. The main focus is the Bible as it all points to Jesus and the Gospel. We are to read it, preach it, live it — all pointing at Jesus, the Main Focus.

[Jesus] is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation. For by him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things were created through him and for him. And he is before all things, and in him all things hold together. And he is the head of the body, the church. He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in everything he might be preeminent. For in him all the fullness of God was pleased to dwell, and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether on earth or in heaven, making peace by the blood of his cross.
— Colossians 1:18-20 ESV

Thank you, Naomi, for reminding us.
