FRUITFULNESS ARTWORK EXPLANATION
This year’s artwork follows the form of last year’s artwork. The reason is to show the continuity between the two themes.
The background design is very similar to last year’s background. It is based on John 15:5 I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing.
The design is of the vine and the fruits it bears. So you will see the vine with its branches and fruits spread all over the background. This is done to show that our Fruitfulness begins with us abiding in Christ. That is when we can bear fruit.
Green Hills and Plains
This is done to show a flourishing environment. Everything there is green and lively.
All our theme design has a place for the cross. This reminds us of our salvation.
The White Dove
All our theme designs have a place for a dove, representing the Holy Spirit and His work in our lives.
The Centerpiece – hand holding tree with a lot of fruits
This is the central concept for this year. It reflects Fruitfulness and is based on Psalm 1:1-3 and Psalm 92: 12-14
The hand represents the hand of the Lord. He holds the tree in His hands. This further shows that to be fruitful, we must be planted in the Lord.
The tree is in the hands of the Lord. Though it is in the hand of the Lord, it also has roots in the earth. It shows the relationship between trusting the Lord and still working on the ground to grow what is planted in the Lord.
The tree is planted by the waters.
The tree has one stem and two main branches. That shows the two expressions of the natural and the spiritual all coming from one source.
The tree has a lot of leaves. The leaves represent all of our activities or the work we do to produce fruits.
The fruits on the tree
The fruits on the tree are many and of different kinds. It shows the different types of fruits we can produce for the Lord – fruits of the spirit, fruits of creativity, and the work of our hands.
Stars in the trees
Usually, stars should be in the sky, but the stars for this design are on the tree. It shows that our fruits must glorify God. Our works must shine as lights to give glory to God.
Figures under the tree
There are images of people working. A woman is working from home on her laptop; two engineers (male and female) reading a blueprint; a carpenter and a potter. All of these show us how to be fruitful with our work.
