My artwork is an 11'"x 14'" oil painting with pieces of the bible on it.
There is a young boy, a soldier of God on earth. Someone like you and me who accepted Jesus as his savior. He is walking through life, which is a forest. The "Forest" represents temptations that are the schemes of the enemy. The "Enemy" uses smart strategies to make us sin. During the 21 century, Satan is using modern technology and entertainment to make us believe his old lies. Satan still wants us to believe that there is happiness away from God. He wants us to forget about our salvation. Jesus commands us to take courage in Him. As He already walked this world and overcame it so we will also. Our smartest strategy to win this spiritual battle is to wear in our minds and hearts the Word of God and to live it , guided by the Holy Spirit, to a point where we turn to be the echo of Jesus’s voice not only to ourselves but to others as well . In conclusion, let's remember that nothing compares to the love of God for us. In Jesus, we are saved and winners of this spiritual battle. We can confidently carry on the purposes He has for our lives while His word is echoing in our hearts and minds to confront the schemes of the devil.
The topic of this contest is the spiritual battle well described in Ephesians 6: 10-20. There, we can find that God calls us all to “ be strong in the Lord''(1) and to put on the full armor of God to fight against Satan’s attacks. His biggest desire for us is to “be able to resist the evil day, and having done everything, to stand firm”(2). To me, the most important thing to win this spiritual battle is to remember that we are “strong in the Lord '' and that His word enlightens our paths and destinations as Satan will never stop attacking us. I painted a young believer who understands it. This soldier of God does not give in to Satan's schemes and focuses on the Lord. This young warrior, with the help of the Holy Spirit, understands God’s living word and uses it as a shield and a helmet where Satan’s lies can not enter. To him, Jesus’ words are so important that they must stay put on to generate a powerful echo in his mind and heart during his whole walk on earth.
