You’re more creative than you think

God, the greatest of all creators, the One who fashioned the Sun, and the humpback whale, and the Great Dane, made us in his image. The Divine image has been stamped upon us. We alone are made in the image of God. God has given us the glorious task of representing him on the earth. Of showing the world what our God is really like. Of showing the watching world that our God is a creative master who loves to bring beauty out of chaos.

Here’s an excellent post by Stephen Altrogge on creativity:

Make God Look Great. Create.

Making art is a very Christian thing to do

I can’t help thinking artistry is a very christian pursuit. How could it not be, when we’re following The Creator and┬ádesperately trying to communicate Him to the world with such human and eternal themes as┬áloss, redemption, fear, love?

Here’s a mini-docu from the Humble Beast crew on bringing glory to God through excellent art, whether that’s music, street art, spoken word, whatever.

At the end of the day the creator of the piece of artwork probably sees it in the clearest way. He is my eye to the world. So it’s not just how I see my world around me, but it’s also wrestling and submitting and rejoicing that He’s given me new eyes to see like Him.
