An Informed Christian imagination (informed through Scripture) bridges the gap between our mind and heart. One does not rule the mind as superior to the heart. Both are needed in the wholeness of salvation. We look at the tension that exists – the reality of the darkness of the world alongside the beauty, truth, love and light that flows in the reality of the kingdom. We convey beauty through our imagination in art, visual media, writing, dreams visions.
We reconcile this tension by knowing that we are Kingdom people, children of God. We reconcile this tension by being in the world but not of the world. We manifest heaven on earth through the resurrection power of Christ in us……in creative expression. His glory advances, the darkness retreats. There rises a strong attraction to the light as many wonder or are amazed at God Himself flowing through us. Holy Spirit leads the way, directs and guides us into an expanding revelation of the KIng of Glory, Jesus Christ.
We declare truth in the person of Christ. We walk in beauty in His glory. Imagination is not inferior to any other Christian expression. In our imagination, joining our mind/heart we are liberated from the harsh reality of the world by beholding His beauty and His glory. We are not unaware that darkness encroaches but it is in the beauty of the Lord that we live, move and have our being.
