Creative Instincts: Not an Accident By Jacob Timothy Lange (Part Two)

God is an artist:

God is an artist. “Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made.” (John 1:3.) God is someone with a fantastic, massive personality and imagination. One of his many qualities is that he absolutely loves to create. In fact, you could say that it’s one of his hobbies.

That’s exactly why we love to create too.

“So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him, male and female he created them.” (Genesis 1:27.)

Every single good quality in a person’s personality is an itsy-bitsy reflection of God’s personality. Little reflections of him are in every single human there ever was, is, or will be. That’s what it means to be made in his image.

Right after God finished creating everything, he said it was very good (Genesis 1:31). That includes humans. Even though sin entered the world, we are still made in his image. And that’s quite something as the person who said that about us is the creator of everything.

We are creative artists by nature because God is a creative artist.
