[what is art? who are the kingdom creatives?]


I have many, many thoughts about what art is and what it means to be an artist. Traditionally we think that when someone calls themselves an "artist" we think of a craft like painting or sculpting, but it's so much more than that. 

"we are created by a God who carefully made every inch of the universe"

That takes a lot more than just painting or sculpting it includes math, science. All knowledge is His and he is a Creative God since we are made in His image then we to no matter what our talents or gifts is a Creative! 

"we can all see ourselves as creative"

When we don't pick up this part of our identity in Christ we take for granted one of the most beautiful parts of God's Character, intentionality. God's careful intentions to bring us into an encounter. You are no accident, You are a work of art and you are an artist!
