Happy Sunday!

Check out last week's article for a few of our favorite quotes:

This is one of my favorite topics of Christianity, and it starts at the very beginning in Genesis.

In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. —Genesis 1:1
So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them. —Genesis 1:27
beauty, indie, and life image

We know God is loving, omnipotent, omniscient, and just. But the very first thing he reveals about himself to us is his creativity. In the very beginning, our first glimpse of God is when he created such a vast, intricate, and amazing world.

Then he goes on to say that we are created in his image to be like him. Loving, just, holy... and creative.

clouds, aesthetic, and art image
...so we, though many, are one body in Christ, and individually members one of another. Having gifts that differ according to the grace given to us let us use them... —Romans 12:5-6

We were each given unique talents, and as our creator intended, we are expected to use them. Creatively.

What we create and express doesn't have to be a painting or a book or a hand-knitted masterpiece. We all express ourselves differently and uniquely according to the passions God gave us.

It goes without saying that the users of this site are all creative. We write, we make mood boards, we share playlists, we create aesthetics. And if you think for a second that what you do doesn't have an impact, you couldn't be more wrong!

Your motivation for creating matters most though. As a Christian, I create in the hopes that I can point the glory back to God, my creator who gave me and inspired my abilities. When we create for fame and glory, the end result is rarely satisfying.

So remember: Why do you create?

  • Do you create for fame and your own recognition? You're probably not doing it right!
  • Do you create for yourself? That's not a bad thing, but you're so close to the best outcome.
  • Do you create to point the glory back to the one who gave you this ability? Now you're talking!

Creating simply to create is therapeutic because it was what we were designed to do. But creating for the glory of God brings about incredible outcomes we never knew possible.

I hope this inspires you to keep creating but also reminds you why we create in the first place.
