Our Creative Birthright

Chapter-a-Day Genesis 1

So God created human beings in his own image.
In the image of God he created them;
male and female he created them.
Genesis 1:27 (NLT)

The first thing we learn about God is that He is an artist. God is a creator. God is creative. He expresses Himself in limitless works of creation. Take a good look around you. Look at space, sky, earth, oceans, landscape, animal, fish, and each uniquely individual human being. God is a master of design, balance, form, line, structure, texture, shape, color and value.

The first thing we learn about humans, both male and female, is that we are made in the image of this Creator. We are like our maker. We are, therefore, creative. We have our Creator’s ability to express ourselves in limitless works of creation.

Connect the dots.

To say, “I’m not creative” or “I don’t have a creative bone in my body” is to believe a lie. It is a denial of our core identity, our spiritual DNA, and of who we were made to be. It is to look at our Creator and say “I don’t belong to Him. I am not His child.”

I personally believe that those who follow Jesus must, now more than ever, reclaim and embrace our birthright as offspring of the Creator if we ever hope to fulfill our journey’s purpose and mission on this Earth.
