We have different gifts, each of which came because of the grace God gave us.
We, as humans, have been made in the image of God. It says so in his very word: Genesis 1:27, "So God created human beings in his image. In the image of God he created them. He created them male and female." There is even proof in our character; we display the characteristics of God. We can be loving, merciful, honest, pure, holy, etc. We can even be the things not of God: jealous, prideful, lustful, and so on. Being created in the image of the Creator, don't you think we also have the ability to create? What would be most obvious is man and woman procreating, but even more than that... In today's society there are so many resources available to us to create things. These things being created can be as big as a skyscraper to as small as a table display. We have creativity flowing through our bodies just as the Creator has it flowing through his. Creativity is something very valuable. Just ponder it for a moment... it's the ability to make new. Even we are a creation; a creation by God and a new creation in Christ Jesus! Creativity can be released through architecture, computers, music, writing, expressions, dance, painting, food, fashion, really anything! What's the point of all this creativity talk? Today I want to point out the value of creativity and that it lies within each person. Do not think you are plain or uncreative. You have creativity flowing through your very bones, dear creation!! Take what you're good at, put it to work, or make it work for you. God has given each person their own talents and abilities to make them unique. And there is no other you! Nobody can think of your own original ideas! If God has given you those talents and visions, be sure to know they are from him and can be used for him! How exciting is that? He wants to use your abilities and the products which come from it as a way to glorify the kingdom of God! He can use anything and everything. You are creative. It's in you from the Father and you can conduct that creativity. Express yourself through what you love and try new ways to look at it in which you can honor God. God can be honored in some of the most unique ways with the abilities he's blessed you with! And who knows? Maybe you can shine light on something that nobody in the world has yet discovered. So let your imagination free and see where Holy Spirit leads you. The Creator has given you, the creation, the ability to orchestrate!
Have a most wonderful weekend! And be sure to beat the heat.
