Of Creativity and Power

This morning Daniel was supposed to list 15 things that show mankind’s creativity. He listed 15 different inventions like phones, lightbulbs, airplanes. I encouraged him to add other creative pursuits that are uniquely human, like art and music.

This afternoon, I was working on my Community Bible Study lesson on Genesis 1-2. We were to read Hebrews 11:3, “By faith we understand that the universe was created by the word of God, so that what is seen was not made out of things that are visible.”

Phones, lightbulbs and planes are made from physical matter.

Painting a picture requires paint and taking a picture requires a camera.

Making music requires an instrument or a human voice.

But God made the physical universe by the power of His spoken Word, creating what is visible out of the invisible that, “His invisible attributes, namely, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse.” (Romans 1:20)

God wants people to seek and know Him. Praise His name.

For more, read Acts 16:22-31, Romans 1 and Hebrews 11.
