Stewardship, Part 9 – The Image of God
God created man is His own image. While we may create on a different scale we too can also be artists who are intentional as we work and shape the world of His creation. By being creative we honor God and we bless other people. We are God’s workmanship, created to do good works that He has prepared in advance for us to do (Ephesians 2:10). In the words of Abraham Heschel, “you must build your life as if it was a work of art.” In the creativity and giftedness God has given us we mirror his image and as we steward these things we bring Him glory.
For anyone who is in Christ is a new creation, the old has gone, the new has come (2 Corinthians 5:17).
