Accessing Infinite Creativity

If you polled a random group of people, I’m sure some would say they were highly creative, some would say they were not creative at all, and some would probably say they fall in the middle.

If we rely on our own feelings or past experiences about the subject, we may find ourselves frustrated. As with anything, we are meant to define ourselves by God’s word and character not by our perception of our abilities, skills, and creativity or by what others have told us all our lives. If He is creative, I must be creative because I was reborn into His life and Kingdom.

The Christian in even its earliest use and meaning was to be a “little Christ.” Jesus was not a go-with-the-flow kind of person. He was a reformer. He was a radical. He was passionate and compassionate. Lives changed as they came in contact with Him with His compassion and all the creativity of heaven. Why should it be any different for us?


Now that you’re intrigued to the point that you can barely stand it,

  1. Read it, it was great!

    • Thank you, TC!

  2. Jesus was one creative man I wish there was more info on his teenage-age 20s. my favorite story of his creativity was the feeding of the 5,000 In Mark 6. Most people think that Jesus and his disciples didn’t have money but in verse 37 it says But he answered, “You give them something to eat.”(H)

    They said to him, “That would take more than half a year’s wages[a]! Are we to go and spend that much on bread and give it to them to eat?”

    But Jesus wanted to prove something to them and used his creative words and I bet he said the same words The Father said to Adam and Noah. Be fruitful and multiply in my name.

    If I remember correctly one of the words for fruitful in the hebrew is creative.

    In the old testament The father was very creative with the building of his temples, the ark, ark of the covenant etc.

    • Absolutely! We have a huge heritage and testimonies of creativity to draw from. Thank you, Andrew.

      • Jesus’s earthly family where some of the most creative people in the earth and still to this day. Majority of our worship songs and poems come from David & Solomon. They where masters at creating there destinies, When The Israelites where running scared with there armor on from Goliath David thought with creative thinking realized he had his sling and 3 stones and wham he took care of Goliath. Solomon built the Lords temple and the Lord took care of him. And Left us a manual in Proverbs and Ecclesiastes of how to use creative wisdom from The Lord.
