God Created

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.  Gen. 1:1  (NASB)

In His image and His likeness, we have creativity. Not that we can take that which never existed and make it exist, like making a tree from thin air, but we can take that tree and make a table or a chair. We can take colors and paint a picture, arrange words to tell a story or write notes to make a song. But He gave us the greatest creative power of all when He gave us the ability to participate with Him in the creation of human life. This participation in creating life is to be done within the bonds of holy matrimony.

Yes, God is the ultimate Creator, but through the blueprint of His image and His likeness, He has passed creating life with Him, down to us (Gen. 5:3).

So the next time you are doing something creative, remember, you are participating in His image, His likeness. So do whatever it is to the very best of your ability and you will be honoring God in the highest way we can: imitating Him.

  1. I think about this often. I wonder how I am able to do some of things that I do. It never ceases to amaze me that I can play a guitar. It is only by God’s grace that I can and I want to do it in a manner that would please and glorify the Father.
