The First Thing We Learn About God

Oxygen Volume 14

So what’s the first thing we learn about God?

Whenever we read the five words of the Bible, we don’t learn that God is loving or forgiving or convicting or beautiful, even though He is all those things.

Instead, we read:  In the beginning God created

Emily P. Freeman writes The first thing we know about God is He made art.

What is the first thing we know about people?

We were made in the image of God.* 

So what does that make us?

If we’re made in the image of God, then we are creative.

Most of us believe this when we are children.

But then something happens.

Life happens.

Someone laughs at us.

We see someone else who is more creative than us (in our opinion)

Our favorite show comes on, so we give up and quit trying.

Through it all, we lose our creative spark.

We lose our creative desire.

We lose part of who we are.

But it doesn’t have to be this way.

You can change it.

Don’t stop creating.

Remember who you are.

Hold on to who God called you to be.

No matter how you do it, create something.

It doesn’t matter if it’s music notes, clay, words, paint, string or bacon.

Keep creating.

Don’t stop.

Don’t let anyone take it from you.

It’s who God made you to be.
