Your Handwriting


"For God was pleased to have all his fullness dwell in him, and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether things on earth or things in heaven, by making peace through his blood, shed on the cross" -- Colossians 1:19-20.

After the Fall in the Garden, everything God had created was not the same. It was as if a virus was introduced to the Garden computer, and it impacted all the files and the operating system. One of those things impacted by sin was man's creativity, which did not go away, but was used increasingly by man to further his own agenda and not God's. Today, we see creativity being used for all kinds of godless and humanistic endeavors. Jesus did not come, however, to do away with man's creativity but to redeem and reconcile to God so it can be used to glorify God and fulfill the Garden mandate for man to be fruitful and multiply. Have you allowed your creativity to be touched by the power of Jesus' cross and resurrection? Are you employing your creativity to fulfill your purpose and to bless and serve other people as God intends? Are you releasing a spiritual dynamic of power and insight into your creativity?

Lord, You want me to express my creativity in part because Jesus died to reconcile my creativity to You. I want to use my creativity to help further Your kingdom, for You as my King want to oversee my creativity's usage to further Your rule on earth. I want to be a Kingdom creator for You!
