Let’s Pursue Our Creative Call Together
Do you know that when God made you, He intentionally put the capacity to create within you?
I’ve been a Christian for thirty years but often found it hard to believe that I had anything in common with God. I’m human, He’s Spirit. I’m a sinner saved by grace, He’s utterly pure. What could we possibly have in common? And how could anything I do be good enough for Him?
But then I read Jordan Raynor’s devotional from his amazing book, Called to Create. He writes that the first thing God did in Genesis was create. Not only that, He also gives His people the ability to worship Him by using our abilities to create through our work, gifts, and talents.
I’m a writer. I write books and stories. I communicate ideas and share insights.
Therefore, I create, too.
I finally had something tangible to link me to my Creator–the very act of creating itself!
That discovery gave me a new sense of purpose.
My vision for this blog is to regroup, support, equip, and promote Christian Creatives so that we fulfill our individual and collective creative callings. We are designed, after all, by the Ultimate Creative.
God has gifted every Christian with abilities and talents. Whether a writer, a visual artist, a photographer, a musician, dancer, etc., those talents were given for our enjoyment and our audience’s pleasure. But more amazingly, God is pleased when we use the gifts He has given us.
But what if it didn’t stop there?
What if the work we create isn’t only for us?
What if God has a plan for our creations?
1 Corinthians 12:4-6
4 There are different kinds of gifts, but the same Spirit distributes them.5 There are different kinds of service, but the same Lord. 6 There are different kinds of working, but in all of them and in everyone it is the same God at work.
The more I research and seek God’s purpose for this blog, the more I come to realize everything we do is important to Him and of the potential for Him to use our creations to further His Kingdom in the world. Our vision might be small and personal but God’s is global. And, amazingly, we have a part in that. (Click here to read more).
This blog facilitates this by providing a platform for Christian Creatives to serve God, the Body of Christ, and the world by putting our gifts to work. Whether you are a professional or a newbie, you have a place here. Your Voice, mission, and passion are unique and only you can share them!
