Creativity and Your New Life in Christ

If you consider yourself to be created in God’s image, and your spirit regenerated, you should display creativity. God brings a person to new life (they are “born again”) from a previous state of separation from God and subjection to the decay of death (Ephesians 2:1-10). This new life allows us to channel the creative power of God. It might seem as though you are unable to channel this creativity in any meaningful way. However, this is because you have not understood how to focus your creativity. Think about light and lasers. Think about how the harmless sun’s rays set houses and forests on fire when focused through glass containers, their splinters or any “prism”.

There is nothing special about channelling creativity. It is about as special as breathing is. If you can breathe, you can be creative. The same way you pray and seek to apply the power of God for healing or deliverance, that is the same way you apply the power for creativity. King Solomon is on record to have created 3,000 proverbs, and 1,005 songs as well as possessing extensive knowledge about the human condition, animal and plant life (1 Kings 4:29 – 34). These are feats that can be bettered by anyone that is a true “born-again” disciple.

The quest to focus your creative powers begins with your motive. You must develop a passion for creativity and your motive must be aligned with God’s purpose. God never rewards our lust, greed or desire for money with his gifts. Therefore, do not be under the illusion that you want to create songs, movies, engines, solutions, or technologies as a way to make money. You will profit from your spiritual gift (1 Corinthians 12:7), but it should never be your primary motive. Like any other spiritual gift, it must never be leveraged for personal gain. Every manifestation of God’s spirit is for the common good. We do not expect evangelists to preach salvation, deliverance and healing for money-making purposes. Neither should you as a Creative.
